  • 1. Earthquake Devin H,Chris E Mrs.. Smith 5th April 8, 2011
  • 2. Basic Background Information <ul><li>What is an earthquake? </li></ul><ul><li>A serious of vibration induced in the earths crust. </li></ul><ul><li>How are earthquakes measured? </li></ul><ul><li>Earthquake are measured on the metricalli intensity scale </li></ul><ul><li>What does magnitude mean? </li></ul><ul><li>Magnitude measures the energy released. </li></ul><ul><li>How is magnitude measured? </li></ul><ul><li>Magnitude is measured by a seismograph </li></ul>
  • 3. Damage Caused by Earthquakes <ul><li>Type one type of damage here. </li></ul><ul><li>landslides </li></ul><ul><li>Type one type of damage here. </li></ul><ul><li>Building collapse </li></ul><ul><li>Type one type of damage here. </li></ul><ul><li>tsunami </li></ul><ul><li>Type one type of damage here. </li></ul><ul><li>People die </li></ul>
  • 4. Waves <ul><li>What are earthquake waves called? </li></ul><ul><li>Seismic waves </li></ul><ul><li>What two types of seismic waves are there? </li></ul><ul><li>Body waves and surface waves </li></ul><ul><li>What two types of body waves are there? </li></ul><ul><li>P waves and S waves </li></ul>
  • 5. Body Waves <ul><li>How do P waves travel? </li></ul><ul><li>They can travel through solid, liquids, and gases </li></ul><ul><li>How do S waves travel? </li></ul><ul><li>They just move straight </li></ul><ul><li>Which move faster? </li></ul><ul><li>P waves </li></ul>
  • 6. Elastic Rebound <ul><li>The elastic rebound is a theory for how energy is spread during earth quakes </li></ul>
  • 7. The Tohoku Earthquake <ul><li>This quake occurred at : </li></ul><ul><li>5:46 </li></ul><ul><li>This quake occurred </li></ul><ul><li>Japan </li></ul><ul><li>The magnitude of this quake was </li></ul><ul><li>9.0 </li></ul>
  • 8. Effects on the environment/earth <ul><li>Nuclear reaction </li></ul><ul><li>mudslides </li></ul><ul><li>Triggered a tsunami </li></ul>Replace these words with an appropriate image. Replace these words with an appropriate image. Replace these words with an appropriate image.
  • 9. Effects on the People of Japan <ul><li>There was more than 10,000 people </li></ul><ul><li>209,000 people do not have electricity </li></ul><ul><li>There food is infected from the radiation </li></ul>
  • 10. Effects on the Economy of Japan <ul><li>the crisis at damaged nuclear plants north of Tokyo was threatening to cause an energy squeeze that could set back all sectors of Japan’s economy. </li></ul><ul><li>Toyota nissan and honda were closed </li></ul><ul><li>They fear suffering another rescession </li></ul>Replace these words with an appropriate image. Replace these words with an appropriate image. Replace these words with an appropriate image.
  • 11. GPS Sensors <ul><li>One interesting fact about this earthquake is that it moved several GPS sensors. This will require all of the GPS have to be reset because japan has been shifted </li></ul><ul><li>How does elastic rebound explain this movement? </li></ul><ul><li>Because the earthquake hit so hard it moved Japan </li></ul>
  • 12. Tsunamis <ul><li>What is a tsunami? </li></ul><ul><li>I huge wave, normally triggered by an earthquake </li></ul><ul><li>How do tsunami waves appear at sea? </li></ul><ul><li>Because if the earth quake hits hard enough the ocean get rough and it goes over anything in it’s way </li></ul><ul><li>How high can tsunami waves be? </li></ul><ul><li>Over 40 feet! </li></ul><ul><li>How fast can tsunami waves move? </li></ul><ul><li>More than 500 miles per hour! </li></ul>
