HMK 1_Plate Boundaries: Present, future, & past
Brian Hampton, Michigan State University;
This project builds on in-class exercises and lectures by having students learn to identify modern, future, and past plate boundaries. Students will use trends in topography, distribution of earth quake and ...

Analyzing Plate Motion Using EarthScope GPS Data
DATA: EarthScope GPS Data. TOOLS: Spreadsheet, Google Maps. SUMMARY: Learn how GPS monuments make precise measurements of Earth's surface. Graph motion data and map velocity vectors to explore tectonic motion and surface deformation in the Pacific Northwest.

Exploring the Applications of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Data
Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Data is the only satellite imagery that can be acquired at any time of the day or night and during adverse weather conditions. Available SAR products include: full-resolution (25 m) ...

Plate tectonics and the evolution of climate

Norman Sleep
Recent work has shown that climate, life, and tectonics interact in ways that are sometimes profound yet not obvious. Norman Sleep reviews two better understood terrestrial examples in this paper. ...

Digital World Tectonic Activity Map (DTAM)

Jacob Yates
This visualization tool aids researchers and educators in understanding the tectonic activity of our planet for the past 1 million years. DTAM is a Geographical Information System (GIS) that displays ...

USGS Crustal Deformation Data

The US Geological Survey maintains a variety of fault and volcano monitoring sites around the western United States. Instruments at these sites include strainmeters, creepmeters, tiltmeters, ...

Surface Creep on California Faults

Roger Bilham
This site provides data from a number of creepmeters in California. A creepmeter is an instrument that monitors the slow surface displacement of an active fault. Its function is not to measure fault ...

Tunnel Tiltmeters

Roger Bilham
This website provides an overview of how tiltmeters function to help scientists detect subtle deformation of the Earths crust such as occurs from plate tectonic movements and volcanic deformation. ...

Google Earth Plate Tectonics File (.kmz)

This Google Earth .kmz file contains a number of data sets that can be used to help students learn about plate tectonics. These include: earthquake epicenters, plate boundaries, plate motion vectors, ...
