  • I have always loved the idea of helping children in a third world country. In college, I will be studying Nutrition and am very interested in traveling to countries like Haiti. I also feel as if the purpose of Senior Graduation Projects show students how much we really can do for others who aren’t as fortunate as we are.\n

  • Haiti was originally the home of an Indian tribe, known as Arawak that is believed to have eliminated by diseases and brutal labor practices after the arrival of Columbus. The French claimed it and Haiti became a very pertinent coffee and sugar producing colony for the French. Haiti claimed its independence from France on January 1, 1804. It was the first nation to successfully gain its independence from a slave rebellion, and the first independent black-led nation in the world. Because it was originally a French colony, the national languages today are French and Creole.\n\n“Background”\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n

  • The earthquake struck 10 miles southwest of Port-au-Prince. Significant aftershocks continued a full week after the main earthquake struck, including a 5.9 magnitude earthquake on January 20, 2010. As the photographs demonstrate, the reddest area is where the earthquake’s epicenter was. In the next two photographs, the epicenter of the main event is represented by the yellow star. The golden dots represent aftershocks of 4.5 to 5.5 magnitude. \n

  • Before the earthquake, the Caribbean and North American Plates moved about 20mm/yr. through a combination of strike-slip and interplate thrust faulting. The 2010 Earthquake was caused by a concentrated slip over 36 kilometers in the EPGFZ. This is the fault line between the North American Plate and the Caribbean Plate. The EPGFZ is responsible for half of the movement between the two, the other half is controlled by the Septentrional-Oriente fault zone.\n
  • There are seven major crustal plates all broken up into smaller plates. They are in constant motion relative to one another.\n
  • \n
  • Every earthquake is measured on the Richter Scale. It is used to determine where the epicenter is and the strength of the earthquake. The Richter Scale is a logarithmic scale, meaning it is based on factors of ten (i.e., a 4.0 magnitude earthquake is 10 times stronger than a 3.0 magnitude earthquake). The average person cannot feel an earthquake that measures a magnitude of 2.0 or less. An earthquake that measures stronger than a 6.0 magnitude will cause severe damage. The strongest earthquake ever recorded was a 9.5 magnitude earthquake in Chile in 1964.\n

    10. 10. THESIS STATEMENT Haiti was stricken with a devastating 7.3 magnitude earthquake on January 12, 2010. By researching the science, health problems, and the media coverage of this horrific disaster, I hope to spread awareness about this natural disaster by showing how much high school students can do to help.http://www.flickr.com/photos/chiefsworld/4277511104/
