  1. 1. Sumatra Indonesia2000<br />Clarissa B.Period 7<br />November 4, 2009<br />Nine years later.<br />
  2. 2. Definitions<br />S-wave-is a seismic body wave that shakes the ground back and forth perpendicular to the direction the wave is moving.<br />P-wave-is a seismic body wave that shakes the ground back and forth in the same and opposite direction the wave is moving.<br />L-wave- seismic waves that travels along the surface or right below the surface.<br />
  3. 3. Definitions cont.<br />Epicenter-is the point in the crust where a seismic rupture begins.<br />Focus-is the point in the earth where an earthquake begins.<br />
  4. 4. Definitions cont.<br />Mercalli Scale-is the scale to measure the intensity of an earthquake.<br />Richter Scale-is the scale to measure an earthquakes magnitude.<br />
  5. 5. My Earthquake<br />The Sumatra Earth quake<br />Located in Sumatra Indonesia <br />June 4, 2000 at 11:30 is when it struck.<br />
  6. 6. The magnitude of this earthquake was 7.9. This earthquake caused over 730 aftershocks. Starting as soon as 11 minuets after the original earthquake. It was caused by a strike-slip fault. Strike-slip faults are when vertical fractures have mostly moved forward. http://earthquake.usgs.gov/learn/animations/animation.php<br />
  7. 7. This earthquake caused 103 deaths. Compared to other major earthquakes in 2000 it is relatively large. The largest one in 2000 was an 8.0 on the Richter scale.<br />
