An animated Powerpoint presentation for seismic refraction geophysics used on a simple two-layer system (soil over rock). Compression wave measurements used to determine depth to horizontal bedrock surface.
This lesson provides an overview of the various types of interactions between tectonic plates. The discussion uses the analogy of a cracked egg to describe the tectonic plates composing Earth's crust. Other topics...
This lesson provides an overview of destructive earthquakes and their connection to tectonic movements of the Earth's crust. It includes a discussion of some especially destructive historic earthquakes, and a brief...
This tutorial introduces novice users to reading the lines on a seismograph. Topics include how to distinguish a real earthquake from background vibrations (microseisms) recorded by the instrument, how to read the minute...
In this activity, students use walking and running speeds to simulate the difference in S- and P-wave travel times, a property used in the location of earthquakes. They will construct travel time curves using their...
