  • Earthquakes
  • Earthquakes By Cameron Horton!
  • Introduction
  • Introduction • In my slide show I will tell you...• What you should have in your survival kit.• What causes an earthquake.• And how people measure earthquakes.
  • What Causes An Earthquake?
  • What Causes An Earthquake? • There are two main causes of an earthquake.Firstly, they can be linked to a volcanic eruption, they are actually very common in areas where there are volcanos in action. Secondly, they can be triggered by tectonic activity associated with plate margins and faults. The majority of earthquakes world wide are this type.
  • Survival Kits.
  • Survival Kits. • In your survival kit you will need...Water and caned food that will keep you alive for 3 days, or until help comes.Medical supplies, [band aids ect.]Torches.A radio.

  • • The Richter magnitude is calculated from the amplitude of the largest seismic wave recorded for the earthquake. A magnitude 8 earthquake releases as much energy as detonating 6 million tons of tnt. Earthquakes are recorded by instruments called seismograms. The recording they make is called a seismogram. The seismograph has a base that sets firmly in the ground, and a heavy weight that hangs free.
