  2. 2. Basic Background Information <ul><li>What is an earthquake? </li></ul><ul><li>a series of vibrations induced in the earth's crust by the abrupt rupture and rebound of rocks in which elastic strain has been slowly accumulating. </li></ul><ul><li>How are earthquakes measured? </li></ul><ul><li>Earthquakes are measured by a seismograph. </li></ul><ul><li>What does magnitude mean? </li></ul><ul><li>Magnitude is the property of relative size or </li></ul><ul><li>extent. </li></ul><ul><li>How is magnitude measured?Magnitude of an </li></ul><ul><li>earthquake is measured by the Richter scale. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Damage Caused by Earthquakes <ul><li>Collapsed buildings . </li></ul><ul><li>Put cracks in the cement and ruin main roads and highways. </li></ul><ul><li>Destroy homes and cities. </li></ul><ul><li>Hurt and effect the earth . </li></ul>
  4. 4. Waves <ul><li>What are earthquake waves called? </li></ul><ul><li>Type your answer here. </li></ul><ul><li>What two types of seismic waves are there? </li></ul><ul><li>Type your answer here. </li></ul><ul><li>What two types of body waves are there? </li></ul><ul><li>Type your answer here. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Body Waves <ul><li>How do P waves travel? </li></ul><ul><li>Type your answer here. </li></ul><ul><li>How do S waves travel? </li></ul><ul><li>Type your answer here. </li></ul><ul><li>Which move faster? </li></ul><ul><li>Type your answer here. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Elastic Rebound <ul><li>Replace these directions with your description of elastic rebound. </li></ul><ul><li>You may also insert images or an animation to help explain. </li></ul><ul><li>In what type of plate boundary does elastic rebound occur? </li></ul>
  7. 7. The Tohoku Earthquake <ul><li>This quake occurred at : </li></ul><ul><li>Type in time </li></ul><ul><li>This quake occurred </li></ul><ul><li>Type in the location </li></ul><ul><li>The magnitude of this quake was </li></ul><ul><li>Type in the magnitude </li></ul>
  8. 8. Effects on the environment/earth <ul><li>Japans coastline may have shifted by as much as 4 m. (13ft.) to the east. </li></ul><ul><li>It probably shifted earth on its axis by about(6.5in.). </li></ul><ul><li>And probably caused the planet to rotate some what faster, shortening the length of the day by about 1.8 millionths of a second. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Effects on the People of Japan <ul><li>They have little to no food </li></ul><ul><li>Homes and cars were being washed away. </li></ul><ul><li>Homes and buildings were collapsed . </li></ul>

Effects on the Economy of Japan <ul><li>The stock market plunged to the ground all over the world. </li></ul><ul><li>The tsunami and nuclear crisis could hurt japans economy </li></ul><ul><li>Type one effect here </li></ul>Replace these words with an appropriate image. Replace these words with an appropriate image. Replace these words with an appropriate image.
  11. 11. GPS Sensors <ul><li>One interesting fact about this earthquake is that it moved several GPS sensors. This will require …(Type answer here) </li></ul><ul><li>How does elastic rebound explain this movement? </li></ul><ul><li>Type your answer here . </li></ul>
  12. 12. Tsunamis <ul><li>What is a tsunami? </li></ul><ul><li>Type your answer here. You can erase the question. </li></ul><ul><li>How do tsunami waves appear at sea? </li></ul><ul><li>Type your answer here. You can erase the question. </li></ul><ul><li>How high can tsunami waves be? </li></ul><ul><li>Type your answer here. You can erase the question. </li></ul><ul><li>How fast can tsunami waves move? </li></ul><ul><li>Type your answer here. You can erase the question. </li></ul>
