  1. 1. Earthquake Data By Brooks Beattie
  2. 2. 10 Places that I predict will have a Earthquake soon <ul><li>Chile : There have been a lot of big and significant earthquakes there. </li></ul><ul><li>California, USA : There have been there have been a lot in the past year. </li></ul><ul><li>Turkey : It is by a boundary line and there have been a lot in the past year. </li></ul><ul><li>Japan : There was a big one lately, and there could be an aftershock. </li></ul><ul><li>Russia : It is on a boundary line and it hasn’t had many lately. </li></ul><ul><li>Egypt : It is also on a boundary line and there haven't been many in the past year. </li></ul><ul><li>Alaska, USA : There have been a lot in the past year, and likely to have one soon. </li></ul><ul><li>Philippines: It is by a boundary line and there has been a lot in the past year. </li></ul><ul><li>Mexico : It is near a boundary line and there have been a a lot of big earthquakes. </li></ul><ul><li>Italy : There have been a lot of big, significant, and recent earthquakes. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Question to Step 1 <ul><li>Some places that are “Overdue” for earthquakes are the places that run along the plate boundaries that have not had any earthquakes. Some of these places include Alaska, Russia, and Africa. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Modified List <ul><li>Russia </li></ul><ul><li>California, USA </li></ul><ul><li>India </li></ul><ul><li>Central America </li></ul><ul><li>China </li></ul><ul><li>Argentina </li></ul><ul><li>Africa </li></ul><ul><li>Alaska </li></ul><ul><li>Japan </li></ul><ul><li>Chile </li></ul>
  5. 5. Question to Step 2 <ul><li>Scientists are using many different tools to help them determine the arrival of Earthquakes. The use IR (infrared radiation) satellites to help find seismic waves. They also use satellites to measure magnetic waves which can determine plate activity. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Prediction <ul><li>I predict that the next big Earthquake will happen along the coast of California. I think this because there have been a lot of big earthquakes, and a lot of earthquakes in the past year. The recent earthquakes could indicate the beginning of a very large earthquake. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Add on to my Prediction As you can see from these two photos there have been a lot of earthquakes of the boundary along California. The green represents the earthquakes from last year. Because there are so many, it could indicate that there is a “big one” on its way. The blue represents that big earthquakes there. This shows that that boundary is capable of creating a big earthquake.
  8. 8. Question #1 <ul><li>What have you learned about earthquakes and earthquake prediction? </li></ul><ul><li>I have learned that earthquakes can strike at any time, with no warning. Also, earthquakes can release some of the seismic waves before the big earthquake. This is one of the indications that a big earthquake could be on its way. I have learned that earthquake predictions are a lot more complex than I thought. Scientists use special satellites that can do many things like use infrared radiation, and measure magnetic waves that represents plate activity.  </li></ul>
  9. 9. Question #2 <ul><li>What factors influence earthquake prediction? </li></ul><ul><li>There are a few factors that influence the earthquake prediction. First, I looked at the excel spreadsheet. The big and significant earthquakes indicate that there are big earthquakes that can occur in those areas. Also, because that there have been a couple of earthquakes in the past year then I know that there is also a possibility that there could be an earthquake soon. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Question #3 <ul><li>Where on Earth do most of really big earthquakes strike? </li></ul><ul><li>Really big earthquakes strike on the boundary of a large, active plate. The pressure in the crust builds up, and then releases which sends out many seismic waves. Depending on the pressure build up the earthquake could be very large, or very small. So for the most part many of the big earthquakes in the world occur on the plate boundaries of large, active plates. </li></ul>
