Alan L. Jones - Research Scientist
- Educational site which offers downloads of the Windows software Seismic/Eruption and Seismic Waves, used for visualization of seismicity, volcanic activity, and wave propagation.
- Learning resource aimed at giving quick facts about earthquakes and the various major disasters to hit our planet in the last 100 years.
Earthquake Learning Activities and Lesson Plans
- Information and links, including instructions for building a table-top seismology demonstration and a model illustrating sea-floor spreading and subduction from a shoe box as well as other exercises for students.
Faultline: Seismic Science at the Epicenter
- Seismic science teaching resources from the Exploratorium.
Geophysics Teaching Demonstrations
- Classroom demonstrations of geophysical principles applicable to the properties and processes of the Earth's interior. Includes seismic waves, earthquake location, density of the earth and the magnetic field.
Guide to Selected Websites for Earthquake Education
- The guide is organized according to education level as well as general subject interest.
High School and Undergraduate Seismicity
- Space technology is used to observe and measure tectonic motion of the Earth's surface. From NASA.
- Resources, technology, ideas and suggested solutions on how build a seismic station to record earthquakes and build seismic sensors generally.
- A hands-on exercise about plate tectonics and earthquakes from PBS. Requires Shockwave plug-in
- Educational course published by the Matter Initiative for Schools at the University of Liverpool. Includes Java applet animations for visualizing how P waves and S waves are recorded on seismometers, how waves travel through solids and liquids, measuring the Earth's core, and calculating an earthquake's epicenter.
- Maintains a network of participating middle schools, high schools and universities reporting real-time recordings from educational seismology stations using AS-1 table top seismometers.
U.S. Geological Survey - Learning and Education
- Portal to educational resources for students in Elementary, Middle, High School, and College.
- Educational website from Michigan Technological University presenting the science of seismology and earthquakes. Developed as part of a high school class program studying seismometer recordings.
