ConcepTest: S Wave Amplitude
The city of Guildhall experienced two earthquakes within a 1-month interval. The first earthquake was magnitude 2; the second earthquake was magnitude 7. Examination of a seismogram recorded 100 km away showed that ...

ConcepTest: Mercalli Intensity
In 1872, 25 people were killed in Lone Pine when their adobe homes collapsed during an earthquake. What was the Mercalli Intensity of the earthquake? a. I - III b. IVVI c. VIIX d. XIXII

ConcepTest: EQs at Divergent Boundaries
The figures below show the location of a plate boundary (red line) and the distribution of earthquake epicenters (filled black circles). The size of the filled circle indicates the earthquake magnitude. Given the ...

ConcepTest: Convergent Boundary
The figures below show the location of a plate boundary (dashed line) and the distribution of earthquake foci (filled circles). The color of the filled circle indicates the depth of the earthquake focus. Given the ...

ConcepTest: EQ Recurrence Interval
Plate A moves 3 cm/yr past plate B. A typical earthquake along the plate boundary has 6 meters of slip. What is the recurrence interval of the earthquake? a. 0.2 years b. 2 years c. 200 years d. 2000 years

ConcepTest: EQ Locations in North America
Which of the locations on the map of North America below is most likely to experience a magnitude 6 or greater earthquake? a. b. c. d.

ConcepTest: EQ Intensity and Distance
Following a shallow earthquake, twenty residents located througout the affected region were surveyed to guage the level of destruction. Their observations were quantified using the Modified Mercalli scale. Which of ...

ConcepTest: Divergent Boundary Sketch
The figure below was drawn by a student to show the relationship between earthquake epicenters (filled circles) and a divergent plate boundary (red line). The figure represents a boundary between two oceanic ...
