Increasingly, scientists are discovering ways to predict and prevent loss of life associated with earthquakes. This lesson will help students to understand earthquakes. The first portion consists of an online investigation in which students read news stories about recent earthquakes and their effects. Then, they perform an activity in which seismic waves (P and S waves) are simulated using a slinky ... Full description.

This webpage of the National Park Service (NPS) and United States Geological Survey (USGS) discusses the environments of coastlines - the narrow strips of land where national parks meet the sea. It covers the formation of waves and beaches, as well as how beaches move through longshore drift. Also included are plans for paper models of island coral reefs, which include shield volcanoes, fringing reefs, ... Full description.

This text reports on the two expeditions of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Office of Ocean Exploration to map the Puerto Rico Trench, the deepest part of the Atlantic Ocean. Multibeam bathymetry and acoustic backscatter data were acquired as the expedition mapped the Caribbean plate, an entire tectonic province of the Earth. The featured section of the report is on the ... Full description.

This outline of basic information on earthquakes starts with an explanation of an earthquake, including the forces acting on rock, (tension, compression, and shear) and plastic and elastic deformation of rock. Next, the principle of the seismograph, seismometer, and seismogram along with the three types of seismic waves are discussed. Information is then presented to help the student distinguish between ... Full description.
