Developing student literacy on risk, resilience, and strategies for living with disaster uncertainty
Monica Gowan, Mayo Medical School
In this guided research and critical thinking activity, students prepare a research paper comprised of two parts: 1) a "state-of-the-science" review and synthesis of selected literature from risk and resilience research (provided) and 2) a brief critical appraisal of how current knowledge is (or could be) applied to building disaster resilience in a real-world scenario. Part 2 will be set in a student-selected hazard context (coastal hazards, flooding, or earthquake), employment sector (academia, government, private industry, services, non-profit), and geopolitical sphere of influence (e.g., Resilience to earthquake disaster in the student population at Universidad de Lima, Peru).

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: EQ and Convergent Boundary Sketch2
The figure below was drawn by a student to show the relationship between earthquake epicenters (filled circles) and a convergent plate boundary (red line). The figure represents a boundary between an oceanic plate ...

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 ...

ConcepTest: Seismic Waves #1
Examine the diagram below that shows a cut-away view of a section of Earth's crust containing a fault. Answer the question below assuming that an earthquake originated at the focus shown on the fault surface. ...

ConcepTest: P and S Waves
Examine the seismogram below that shows a 26-minute long record of the seismic waves from the 1906 San Francisco earthquake as it was received by a seismograph station in Germany, over 14,000 km away. Approximately ...
