  • This Earthquake's Seismograms are Below Use these three seismograms to estimate the S-P time interval for each of the recording stations. Record your measurement for the S-P interval in the box below each seismogram. Eureka, CA Seismic Station S-P Interval = seconds Elko, NV Seismic Station S-P Interval = seconds
  • Las Vegas, NV Seismic Station S-P Interval = seconds Find the distance using the lag time vs. distance graph.
