This database summarizes geologic, geomorphic, and geographic information for about 2,000 Quaternary faults and folds in the United States. These structures are believed to be sources of magnitude 6 or greater earthquakes during the Quaternary Period (the past 1,600,000 years). Maps of these geologic structures are linked to detailed descriptions, including geologic setting, fault orientation, fault ... Full description.

ShakeMaps, a product of the United States Geological Survey (USGS) Earthquake Hazards Program, are near-real-time maps of ground motion and shaking intensity that are produced following significant earthquakes. They appear as a set of links keyed to areas which have recently experienced an earthquake. The maps display instrumental intensity (modified Mercalli scale), peak ground acceleration, and ...

This online mapping application produced by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) allows users to generate and print hazard maps of any area in the United States. Hazard data is available for floods, fires, earthquakes, hurricanes, and tornadoes. The map can be navigated by entering a street address, city, and ZIP code or by using the cursor to move east, west, north, or south and to zoom ... Full description.

This is an outline of an earthquakes unit using Seismic/Eruption (called SeisVolE on this webpage). Parts of the unit involve graphing using Excel, and all lessons use the Siesmic/Eruption program (which is available for free download). These lessons cover: making a map using Seismic/Eruption, adding relief to the map, taking a cross-section of the map, importing earthquake data from the USGS PDE ... Full description.

This site provides access to near real-time data on the Earth's magnetic field available at 14 United States Geological Survey (USGS) observatories across the world. The data includes fluxgate sensor measurements (H, D, Z, or intensity and declination) specifications and proton magnetometer data (F, or strength), and are available with a 12-24 minute delay. The data are 'preliminary' in nature, meaning ... Full description.
