Arc explorer results

  1. 1. Muhammad Ali Mojaradi
  2. 2. <ul><li>The first place I chose </li></ul><ul><li>that is east of South </li></ul><ul><li>America. It is where the </li></ul><ul><li>North American and </li></ul><ul><li>South American Plates </li></ul><ul><li>meet. I believe that this area is overdue for an earthquake because it is on a fault line, and secondly because the fault line boundaries near it are riddled with earthquakes. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>The second that I believe </li></ul><ul><li>is overdue for an earthquake </li></ul><ul><li>is south of Japan. I think this </li></ul><ul><li>area is overdue because it is </li></ul><ul><li>on a tectonic plate boundary </li></ul><ul><li>that is covered by earthquakes, </li></ul><ul><li>however this small are hasn’t </li></ul><ul><li>experienced any earthquakes. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>The next area I picked that </li></ul><ul><li>was overdue for an earth- </li></ul><ul><li>quake was a fault line in the </li></ul><ul><li>red sea between Saudi </li></ul><ul><li>Arabia and Egypt. This is </li></ul><ul><li>because it is on a fault line, </li></ul><ul><li>which is a hurricane hotspot. The next reason is that it is on a convergent plate boundary, which generally causes earthquakes. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>The next selected are is South of </li></ul><ul><li>Alaska and west of Washington </li></ul><ul><li>State. I chose this area because </li></ul><ul><li>it is on a convergent plate boun- </li></ul><ul><li>dary. The second reason is that there are </li></ul><ul><li>A lot of concentrated earthquakes in the area. </li></ul><ul><li>I believe that theoretically this area should be experiencing earthquakes periodically. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>The next area that is overdue </li></ul><ul><li>for an earthquake is near the </li></ul><ul><li>Caribbean island of Cuba. I </li></ul><ul><li>think the area that is near the </li></ul><ul><li>convergent plate boundary is </li></ul><ul><li>overdue for an earthquake. There are a lot of </li></ul><ul><li>earthquake concentrations in the area. It is also </li></ul><ul><li>on a convergent plate boundary which causes earthquake if it is active. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>The next area I chose is north of Russia. It is the border of the Eurasian and North American plate boundaries. I think that this area is overdue for and earthquake because it is on a convergent plate boundaries and there are no signs of activity. The plate boundary could be inactive however. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>The next area is very over- </li></ul><ul><li>due for an earthquake in my </li></ul><ul><li>opinion. This is because the </li></ul><ul><li>surrounding area is covered </li></ul><ul><li>by thousands of earthquakes. </li></ul><ul><li>However the central area has no earthquakes, even though it appears that the plates are active. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>The next are overdue for an </li></ul><ul><li>earthquake is on the north </li></ul><ul><li>side of the island. This is </li></ul><ul><li>because the surrounding area </li></ul><ul><li>and fault lines are covered by </li></ul><ul><li>earthquakes, however this area has none. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>The next area I chose was </li></ul><ul><li>the area on the convergent </li></ul><ul><li>boundary pictured. I chose </li></ul><ul><li>this area because compared </li></ul><ul><li>to other active convergent </li></ul><ul><li>boundaries this area had few </li></ul><ul><li>earthquakes. I think this area will experience many more earthquakes in the future. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>The next area I chose is </li></ul><ul><li>a plate boundary that </li></ul><ul><li>is south of South America. </li></ul><ul><li>I chose this area because </li></ul><ul><li>the surrounding area is </li></ul><ul><li>filled with earthquakes, but the earthquakes seem to thin out near this area. I think this shortage of earthquakes might be due to inactive plate boundaries. </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>The next step in my research is to periodically analyze the map and check my predictions, updating them when necessary. </li></ul>
