Part 3 Step 2 Question 3 cont. How does the distribution of these Earthquakes compare to others? These Earthquakes are mainly in groupings by Convergent Boundaries (red lines), and are mainly by oceans.
Part 3 Step 2 Question 5
Part 3 Step 2 Question 5 cont. What type of plate boundary is associated with earthquakes that have a magnitude of 7.0 or greater? They are mostly near Convergent Boundaries.
Part 3 Step 3 Question 4
Part 3 Step 3 Question 4 cont. What percentage of big earthquakes occur within 100 miles of a convergent plate boundary? 613 out of 1286 earthquakes occurred within in 100 miles of convergent plate boundaries, making 48%
Part 3 Step 3 Question 5
Part 3 Step 3 Question 5 What percentage of big earthquakes occur within 200 miles of a convergent plate boundary? 977 out of 1286 big earthquakes occur within 200 miles of a convergent plate boundary, making 76%
Earthquakes in the Future
New List: 10 PlacesNew Technology:Scientists are always finding new ways but they have satellites that can detect earthquakes days and even weeks before they occur.
I think that:EuropeIs going to have the next big Earthquake.
Overall Analysis What have you learned? I have learned that although scientists cannot make 100% accurate predictions on when earthquakes will occur, technology allows them to map out and estimate when there are significant quakes coming.
Overall Analysis What are some factors that influence earthquake prediction? Some factors that influence earthquake prediction are weather, location, and the type of technology that is available.
Overall Analysis Where do most significant earthquakes occur? Most significant earthquakes occur along convergent plate boundaries.
