Comment on this resource
Natural hazards such as earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanoes affect both coastal and inland areas. Long-term data from these events, including photographs, can be used to establish the past record of natural hazard event occurrences. These data are also important for planning, response, and mitigation of future events. The National Geophysical Data Center plays a major role in post-event data collection. ... Full description.

The Savage Earth website is the on-line companion to the PBS television series of the same name. This site tells the stories of several great natural disasters, particularly the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D. that destroyed Pompeii and the 1994 earthquake in Kobe, Japan. It contains articles on the earth's crust and plate tectonics, earthquakes, volcanoes, and tsunamis. Each article features ... Full description.

Tsunamis are the result of processes that shape the Earth's surface: earthquakes, volcanic events, and landslides. People cannot control the dynamic forces that drive tectonic events; however, they can reduce the number of lives lost to tsunamis by using technology to assess hazards, develop warning systems, and educate the public. This report discusses what it will take to implement an effective ... Full description.

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) supports a variety of networks for monitoring earthquakes and crustal deformation. These include the Advanced National Seismic System (ANSS), which provides uniform broadband and strong-motion coverage of the continental U.S.; the National Strong Motion Program (NSMP), which is responsible for recording damaging earthquakes in the United States on the ground ...

This article, entitled Earth: All Stressed Out, dicusses the reasons for crustal movement, the different types of faults and seismic waves, and an explanation of how the damage is caused. The article includes several animations that support the explanations, plus a video taken during a destructive California earthquake. There are also three sidebars that support the article. They are Learning from ... Full description.

This is an exercise based on the geologic hazard of land subsidence in areas of karst terrain. A brief introduction is given to ground water, the development of karst, and the resulting collapse features due to the lowering of the water table. Photos and an animation support the discussion. Users are directed to print out a question sheet that is intended to guide exploration of the Edwards Aquifer ... Full description.

This easily built classroom apparatus is ideal for gaining a better understanding of how earthquakes work and how they are recorded. The apparatus consists of a heavy object that is dragged steadily with an elastic cord. Although pulled with a constant velocity, the heavy object repeatedly slides and then stops. A small vibration sensor, attached to a computer display, graphically monitors this motion, ... Full description.
