    • Earthquakes Around the World
      By: Spencer Miller
    • The distribution of earthquakes coincides with the boundaries between tectonic plates.
      What did I notice about the Distribution?
    • The earthquakes tended to happen where the tectonic plates collide not slide apart for example the Pacific Ocean plate.
      What did notice about the earthquake pattern?
    • The Earthquakes happen where the plates converge together.
      Where do the earthquake happen?
    • 47% of big earthquakes occur within 100 miles of a convergent plate boundary.
      What percentage of big earthquakes occur within 100 miles of a convergent plate boundary?
    • 71% of big earthquakes occur within 200 miles of a convergent plate boundary.
      What percentage of big earthquakes occur within 200 miles of a convergent plate boundary?
    • Japan
      San Francisco
      Chile
      Mexico
      Italy
      East China
      South Alaska
      Caribbean Islands
      Haiti
      Mongolia
      Top ten list where earthquakes will occur sometime in the future.
    • Question: What have you learned about earthquakes and earthquake prediction?
      Answer: That most of the earthquakes occur on plates and convergent plates.
      Question: What factors influence earthquake prediction?
      Answer: A factor is where the two lines meet between the significant and big earthquakes and past year earthquakes.
      Question: Where on Earth do most of the really big earthquakes strike?
      Answer: Really big earthquakes occur on convergent plates on earth.
