Title: Global GIS Lesson: Exploring North American Earthquakes
Url: https://www.earthsciweek.org/GIS/
Creator: Kerski, Joseph
Publisher: American Geological Institute
Description: In this module, students use Geographic Information Systems (GIS) together with the tools and data from the North America Global GIS CD to investigate earthquakes, volcanoes, and population on local and global scales. As an example, in the first earthquakes lesson, students are given a scenario where they must report on the distribution and frequency of earthquakes in North America related to cities, political boundaries, volcanoes, and fault lines. They analyze current earthquakes from the Internet, and assess the hazards from a continental to a local scale. The lessons can be used with other data in the Global GIS project to investigate earthquakes in other continents. Furthermore, the methods used here can be applied to other map themes contained within the North America Global GIS CD.
