Southern great lakes seismic zone

  1. 1. ANTON POHL Southern Great Lakes Seismic Zone
  2. 3. Past <ul><li>This region has a low to moderate level of seismic activity. When it is compared to other seismic zones to the east of it, it is especially low. Some earthquakes to the east have been double the intensity of the most powerful ones in this seismic zone. Over the past 30 years, it averages about 2 or 3 magnitude 2.5 or larger earthquakes. </li></ul>
  3. 4. Present <ul><li>There was no really recent earthquakes here, but there was three magnitude 5 earthquakes pretty recent. They were all in the United States. The locations of them are in Attica, New York, Cleveland, Ohio, and near the Pennsylvania/Ohio Border. </li></ul>
  4. 5. Future <ul><li>In the future I think that the SGL seismic zone will stay about the same, with medium (about magnitude 5) earthquakes about every 40 years. There will be constant small earthquakes. It probably won’t change much at all. </li></ul>
