View Resource Seismically Active Zones in the Arctic

From the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Marine Geology and Geophysics site, this article entitled "Seismically Active Zones in the Arctic," by G.P. Avetisov, is a recent translation and update of a work previously available only in Russian. The article "contains and provides an analysis of the information on the history of seismic research into the Arctic, distribution of the...

View Resource USGS Earthquake Hazards Program: Current Earthquakes Maps

The US Geological Survey's National Earthquake Information Center (NEIC) provides this Website for current earthquake maps (for a related USGS site of geologic hazards, see the September 18, 1998 Scout Report). Taken from the NEIC's Near-Real Time Earthquake Bulletin, maps of the world, hemispheres, continents, and sub-continents provide location and phase data for the most recent seismic events....

View Resource Earthquake Research Reveals New Information

This brief, three-part report focuses on NSF-sponsored earthquake safety projects. The first section is on the Simmillennium Project, which investigates computer earthquake modeling techniques. The second section concentrates on hospitals, which are particularly difficult to retrofit for earthquake safety because of the sophisticated diagnostic and treatment systems they contain. The report also...

View Resource The Live Internet Seismic Server

As part of the US Geological Survey, the Albuquerque Seismological Laboratory is responsible for installing and maintaining a global network of seismograph stations and collecting and distributing the data produced by these stations. The Live Internet Seismic Server (LISS) Web site provides this data free to the public from over fifty stations around the globe and is updated every 30 minutes. The...

View Resource Seismic Waves

The first site for this Topic in Depth comes from the Department of Geological and Mining Engineering and Sciences at Michigan Technological University and is called What Is Seismology? (1). The site describes the basics of seismology, the various types of waves associated with it, and even contains a link that shows you how to make your own P and S waves. Next is the Earthquakes Overview site (2...

View Resource USGS Geologic Hazards

The Geologic Hazards section of the US Geological Survey (USGS) conducts research into the causes of geological phenomena such as landslides and earthquakes. The homepage connects visitors to the Geologic Hazards team's three main areas of endeavor. Geomagnetism provides links to the National Geomagnetic Information Center; Magnetic Observatories, Models, and Charts; and the Geomagnetic...

View Resource Earthquakes

Provided by the British Geological Survey, the Earthquakes Web site contains numerous educational topics for kids. Best suited for junior high school students and older, the site contains information on macroseismology (or the observable effects of earthquakes on people, buildings, and nature); seismic hazards; earthquake monitoring; recent and historical earthquakes; and more. Other links on the...

View Resource Northern California Earthquake Data Center

A project between the University of California Berkeley Seismological Laboratory and the United State Geological Survey, the Northern California Earthquake Data Center (NCEDC) "is a long-term archive and distribution center for seismological and geodetic data for Northern and Central California." Educators and students can examine recent seismograms from the Berkeley Digital Seismic Network....

View Resource Two on Global Earthquate Explorer

Created by the University of South Carolina and the IRIS Consortium, the Global Earthquake Explorer (GEE) "is an education and outreach tool for seismology that aims to make it easy for non-seismologists to retrieve, display, and analyze seismic data." The goal of the module, which can be downloaded on a Windows, Mac OS X, or Unix / Linux platform, is to use earthquake data to study specific wave...
