Biggest earthquakes

  1. 1. Biggest earthquakes<br />Jack Moore<br />
  2. 2. Map of big earthquakes<br />Big and Significant Earthquakes<br />Convergent Boundaries<br />Divergent Boundaries<br />
  3. 3. For a better view of earthquakes<br />
  4. 4. Top 10 List Before Searching online<br />South American West Coast<br />Greece<br />Alaska<br />India<br />Japan<br />Southern Mexico<br />Indonesia (Philippines, New Guinea, and Sumatra)<br />Southern Japan<br />Caribbean<br />Mideastern<br />
  5. 5. Updated List<br />Alaska w/ Aleutian Islands<br />Western South America (Mostly Chile)<br />Indonesia (Philippines, New Guinea, and Sumatra)<br />Japan<br />Himilayas (Especially Nepal)<br />Central America (Southern Mexico to Panama Canal)<br />Southern Europe (Around Greece)<br />Japan<br />San Francisco And L.A. Metropolitan Areas<br />New Zealand And To The Northeast Of It<br />
  6. 6. What new tools or techniques are seismologists using to help them better predict earthquakes?<br />1,500 Ton presses<br />QuakeSat created by Quakefinder<br />Interferometric-Synthetic Aperture Radar(InSAR)<br />Satellites equipped with Infrared Radiation<br />
  7. 7. What have you learned about earthquakes and earthquake prediction?<br />Earthquakes can’t be fully predicted right now but we can estimate when a new one will occur. For example, scientists think there’s a 2%, 10%, or 50% chance of an earthquake occurring in the San Andres fault. But scientists think they will be able to predict earthquakes soon.<br />
  8. 8. What factors influence earthquake prediction?<br />Movement of the plates<br />Heat<br />Past Earthquakes<br />Type of boundary<br />
  9. 9. Where on Earth do most of the really big earthquakes strike?<br />Almost every big earthquake has occurred on convergent boundaries. For example, the recent Japan earthquake was on a convergent boundary. A few of the small ones also occurred on transform boundaries.<br />
