What have you learned about earthquakes and earthquake prediction?
I learned a lot about earthquake predictions. I learned that most earthquakes occur on plate boundaries. I also learned that many earthquakes happen each year and most of them, we can’t even feel. Although some of them are really weak, some of them can be very deadly and dangerous, like the one that happened in Japan recently.
Earthquakes are really hard to predict but scientists have come up with new ways to figure out when the next earthquake will occur. Factors that would be involved in figuring out when to find when the next earthquakes would be when recent ones had occurred, where the fault line would be and how active the plate would be.
Where on Earth do most of the really big earthquakes strike?
Most earthquakes occur near boundary plates or on boundary plates. They also occur on plate lines. Some places that many earthquakes occur on would be the San Andreas plate. Some countries were a lot of earthquakes are in Japan, Haiti and Greece.
