San Andreas Fault [slide By Slide Description]
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Fault movement, especially at plate boundaries, is largely an underground or even underwater process hidden from our view. But the boundary between the North American and Pacific Plates interfaces in a line that runs from the Mexican border north.

Plotting Earthquakes
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students can use Microsoft Excel to plot the locations of the most recent earthquakes. Afterwards, they can sketch the locations of the continents to determine where and why earthquakes occur.

[Answer Sheet] Pangaea Evidence
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
ANSWER SHEET: EARTH SCIENCE REGENTS - EVIDENCE FOR PANGAEA.

New Madrid Earthquake
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Relative Motion Of Rocks Along A Fault: Students explore different types of faults while studying the New Madrid Earthquake. Adapted from AGI lab manual.

Locating An Epicenter
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
In this lab, you will use seismograms from three locations to determine the epicenter of an earthquake. You will use the P- and S-wave arrival time difference to determine distance to epicenter, then use a compass to record the distance radius measured.

Intro To Plate Tectonics
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Lab B: The year is 1915. You are a geologist attending a conference (and vacationing!) in Italy where a German meteorologist, Alfred Wegener, has given a lecture from his new book, The Origin of Continents and Oceans.

Intro To Plate Tectonics
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Lab A: The year is 1915. Your name is Alfred Wegener, and you have just published a book entitled, The Origin of Continents and Oceans. In your book, you argue that some 300 million years ago, all of the continents were connected into one giant landmass.

Finding Epicenters
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Using earthquake data, regional maps, and a drawing compass, the student will triangulate the positions of three different earthquakes and then plot their locations on a world map.

Earthquakes And Plate Boundaries
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
The following lab activity requires the use of the Seismic Eruption software.

Earthquake Patterns Lab
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students will investigate worldwide patterns of earthquakes and determine the relationship of these patterns to types of plate boundaries.
