Science earthquake data

  1. 1. Science Earthquake Data<br />By: Katie Corbett<br />
  2. 2. Part 3 Step 2 Question 2 <br />Q:What do you notice about the distribution of these earthquakes?<br />A: The earthquakes are distributed mostly on or nearby boundary lines<br />
  3. 3. Part 3 Step 2 Question 3<br />Q: How does the distribution of these earthquakes compare to others?<br />A: That they are all in groups on the Convergent Boundary, and they are usually near or on the oceans.<br />
  4. 4. Part 3 Step 2 Question 5<br />Q: What type of plate boundary is associated with earthquakes that have a magnitude of 7.0 or greater?<br />A: They occur by or on the Convergent boundaries.<br />
  5. 5. Part 3 Step 3 Question 4<br />Q: What Percentage of big earthquakes occur within 100 miles of a convergent plate boundary?<br />A: 613 out 1286 of 48% of big earthquakes occur within 100 miles of convergent plate boundaries.<br />
  6. 6. Part 3 Step 3 Question 5 <br />Q:What Percentage of big earthquakes occur within 200 miles of a convergent plate boundary?<br />A: 977 out of 1286 so that is 76% of big earthquakes occur within 200 miles of a convergent plate boundary.<br />
  7. 7. Final list of ten places:<br />California - Because there many dots there and they get small earthquakes all the time.<br />Alaska - Because in the southern part of it has many dots that are cluttered into a line that curves with the shape of the state. <br />Chile - Because a couple of earthquakes hit there recently. <br />Canada - Because there were just a couple of earthquakes that hit there recently in this past year.<br />Brazil - Because they are kind of over due for one they have had very little activity in this past year.<br />London - Because they get small earthquakes everyday.<br />Monaco - Because it has many earthquakes.<br />Japan - Because they just had there big one.<br />Italy - Because they have had a lot in the past year.<br />China - Because it has a good chance that the southern part will have many earthquakes because there are earthquakes all around it.<br />
  8. 8. What new technology do scientists have:<br />The new technology that scientist have is that they have satellites that can tell us when and where an earthquake will happen before they occur.<br />
  9. 9. Overall:<br />I have learned that earthquakes can happen anywhere and at anytime. Predicting them is a lot more challenging then I thought.<br />Some factors that influence earthquake prediction would be the technology they use, the weather, and where you are in the world.<br />Most of the large earthquakes occur on the west side of South America and in the southern part of Europe. <br />
