Maggie's Earthquake Data Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Earthquake Data
    By: Maggie Davis
  • 2. Part 3 Step 2 Question 2
  • 3. Part 3 Step 2 Question 2 cont.
    What do you notice about the distribution of these earthquakes?
    I notice that most earthquakes occur along the boundaries of the plates.
  • 4. Part 3 Step 2 Question 3
  • 5. 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.
  • 6. Part 3 Step 2 Question 5
  • 7. 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.
  • 8. Part 3 Step 3 Question 4
  • 9. 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%
  • 10. Part 3 Step 3 Question 5
  • 11. 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%
  • 12. Earthquakes in the Future
  • 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.
  • 14. I think that:EuropeIs going to have the next big Earthquake.
  • 15. 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.
  • 16. 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.
  • 17. Overall Analysis
    Where do most significant earthquakes occur?
    Most significant earthquakes occur along convergent plate boundaries.
