Virtual Earthquake Earth System Science You will be going to the webpage below and looking at real seismic data taken from past earthquakes. You will learn to analyze the data and locate the epicenter and calculate the Richter scale magnitude. Do not print any documents in the completion of this assignment. You will show Mr. Foster your certificate at the end of the activity for credit. It is important to read carefully while completing this activity so you don’t have to start over. 1. Look at http://www.sciencecourseware.com 2. Click on “Geo Labs online” 3. Click on “Virtual Earthquake” 4. Read this page and all pages following, then click on “Execute virtual Earthquake” 5. Read -then click on one of the earthquakes listed. Click “Submit”. 6. Read-that page and click on “View Seismograms” 7. Read- Estimate the three s-p intervals and insert them in the boxes provided. Click “convert s-p interval.” 8. Read- insert epicentrical distances and then click “find epicenter.” 9. Read- if it allows you go on to “compute Richter magnitude.” 10. Read- insert Richer magnitudes, Click submit to “namogram” 11. Read- enter magnitude and click “confirm mag.” 12. When you are finished show Mr. Foster the certificate on your screen for credit. DO NOT PRINT THE CERTIFICATE! 13. You may complete a different earthquake for extra credit.
