Late-semester lecture/activity using seismic focal mechanisms part of Cutting Edge:Structural Geology:Activities
This late-semester lecture/activity uses seismic focal mechanisms to build on already-covered concepts of friction, elasticity (rheology), and 3D thinking, and to expand the discussion to include seismic first motions and earthquake locations. This is accomplished, in part, by a hands-on excercise using a toy Slinky. -
