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: Divergent 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: EQs at Convergent 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 ...

Getting to the Point: Exploring Tectonic Motion at Point Reyes National Seashore
Module by: Judy McIlrath, University of South Florida Cover Page by: Len Vacher and Denise Davis, University of South Florida
Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum module/Geology of National Parks course. Students use foundational math to calculate such earthquake-related numbers as fault displacement rate and earthquake recurrence interval associated with the San Andreas Fault at Point Reyes National Seashore.

Explaining Seismic Hazard Probabilities
Mary Savina, Carleton College
This activity asks students to explain earthquake hazard probabilities to a lay audience of citizens, government officials and others.

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.

Plotting Earthquakes with Near Real-Time Data
Bill Slattery, Wright State University-Main Campus
Students access the United States Geological Survey National Earthquake Information Center at http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/map/ and plot the longitude latitude and depth of earthquakes on a physiographic ...

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 ...
