### Maggie's Earthquake Data

1. 1. Earthquake Data<br />By: Maggie Davis<br />
2. 2. Part 3 Step 2 Question 2<br />
3. 3. Part 3 Step 2 Question 2 cont.<br />What do you notice about the distribution of these earthquakes?<br />I notice that most earthquakes occur along the boundaries of the plates. <br />
4. 4. Part 3 Step 2 Question 3<br />
5. 5. Part 3 Step 2 Question 3 cont.<br />How does the distribution of these Earthquakes compare to others?<br />These Earthquakes are mainly in groupings by Convergent Boundaries (red lines), and are mainly by oceans.<br />
6. 6. Part 3 Step 2 Question 5<br />
7. 7. Part 3 Step 2 Question 5 cont.<br />What type of plate boundary is associated with earthquakes that have a magnitude of 7.0 or greater?<br />They are mostly near Convergent Boundaries.<br />
8. 8. Part 3 Step 3 Question 4<br />
9. 9. Part 3 Step 3 Question 4 cont.<br />What percentage of big earthquakes occur within 100 miles of a convergent plate boundary?<br />613 out of 1286 earthquakes occurred within in 100 miles of convergent plate boundaries, making 48%<br />
10. 10. Part 3 Step 3 Question 5<br />
11. 11. Part 3 Step 3 Question 5<br />What percentage of big earthquakes occur within 200 miles of a convergent plate boundary? <br />977 out of 1286 big earthquakes occur within 200 miles of a convergent plate boundary, making 76%<br />
12. 12. Earthquakes in the Future<br />
13. 13. 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. <br />
14. 14. I think that:EuropeIs going to have the next big Earthquake.<br />
15. 15. Overall Analysis<br />What have you learned?<br />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.<br />
16. 16. Overall Analysis<br />What are some factors that influence earthquake prediction?<br />Some factors that influence earthquake prediction are weather, location, and the type of technology that is available.<br />
17. 17. Overall Analysis<br />Where do most significant earthquakes occur?<br />Most significant earthquakes occur along convergent plate boundaries.<br />
