    • Earthquakes By: Scott Fitzgerald
    • Map of Earthquakes
    • Questions
      • 1. What do you notice about the distribution of these earthquakes?
      •  
      • The distribution of earthquakes coincides with the boundaries between tectonic plates
      •  
      • 2. How does the distribution of these earthquakes compare to the others?
      •  
      • Big earthquakes tend to be concentrated in places where tectonic plates are colliding, rather than pulling apart.
      • Concentrations of big earthquakes surround the Pacific Ocean in a pattern often described as the Ring of Fir
      • 3. What type of plate boundary is associated with earthquakes that have a magnitude of 7.0 or greater?
      •  
      • Big earthquakes occur most frequently at convergent plate boundaries.
      •  
      • 4. What percentage of big earthquakes occur within 100 miles of a convergent plate boundary?
      •  
      • 588 of 1250, which equals 47% of big earthquakes occur within 100 miles of a convergent plate boundary
      •  
      • 5. What type of plate boundary is associated with earthquakes that have a magnitude of 7.0 or greater?
      •  
      • Big earthquakes occur most frequently at convergent plate boundaries
