    • 1. By the city Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Russia.
    • 11. By the Ryukyu Island Chain below Japan.
    • 111. By Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands.
    • 1V. In the Atlantic Ocean by a fault line.
    • V. By Equador and Peru
    V1. In the Pacific Ocean by a fault line. V11. By Chile. V111. By the California Transform fault . 1X. By the Himalayas Mountain Range. X. By Alaska.

  • 4. Revised Expected Significant Earquakes
    • 1. #2- Below Japan
    • 11. #7- Near Chile
    • 111. #8- Near California’s Transform Fault
  • 5. Questions
    • What have I learned about earthquakes and earthquake prediction?
    • I have learned that it is very hard to pick where exactly the next earthquake
    • will hit, but we can predict where one might happen based on where they
    • have happened before, where fault lines are, and where convergent and
    • transform boundaries are.
    • What factors influence earthquake prediction?
    • Where they have happened before, where tectonic plates’ edges are/ fault
    • lines are, and where convergent and transform boundaries are.
    • Where on Earth do most of the really big earthquakes strike?
    • Around convergent and transform boundaries.
  • 6. The Big One
    • Is, I predict, by Chile, as there have been so many there, and there is a long stretch of convergent boundary there.
