Earthquake Magnitude - Linking Earthquake Magnitude and Intensity
Eric Baer, Highline Community College
An activity that helps students link earthquake magnitude and intensity.

Earthquake Shaking and Damage
Eric Baer, Highline Community College
This student homework and problem set has students quantitatively earthquake hazard, shaking and damage.

Cause of the Mogul, Nevada, Earthquake Swarm, Spring 2008
Patricia Cashman, University of Nevada-Reno
Students examine data from fault- and magma- related earthquakes and determine distinguishing characteristics. They then apply these criteria to determine the cause of the Mogul earthquake sequence (that most of ...

Locating and Measuring Earthquakes Using Real Seismic Data
Kelly Liu, Missouri University of Science and Technology
The objective is to locate an earthquake and measure its Richter magnitude using real data recorded by seismographs.

What Kind of Continental Margin am I? Active or Passive?
Laura Wetzel, Eckerd College; Cindy Palinkas, University of Maryland-College Park; Karen Bemis, Rutgers University-New Brunswick; John McDaris, Carleton College
Volcanoes, earthquakes, and topography reveal whether a continental margin is active or passive. In this activity, students use the GeoMapApp tool to work with earthquake, volcano, and topographic data to identify ...

Crandall Canyon Mine Collapse, Utah: Case Example
Barb Tewksbury, Hamilton College
Students evaluate whether pillar failure and collapse caused ground shaking or whether an earthquake caused pillar failure and mine collapse in the Crandall Canyon Mine collapse in 2007.

Threat of Flank Collapse at Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii: Case Example
Barb Tewksbury, Hamilton College
Students evaluate fault and earthquake data plus focal mechanism solutions, and develop a picture of on-going deformation of the south flank of Kilauea Volcano that might one day transition to catastrophic flank ...

Tectonics, Earthquakes, Volcanoes
Camille Holmgren, SUNY College at Buffalo
This is a two-part homework exercise. In the first part, students use on-line courseware from California State University, Los Angeles to investigate seismograph records. In the second part, students complete a ...

Interseismic deformation: Crustal deformation between large earthquakes
Shimon Wdowinski, University of Miami
This assignment is based on real geodetic data measured in central California across the San Andreas Fault. It will get the students acquainted with geodetic observations, basic data analysis methods, and ...

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 ...
