Earthquake Volcano Project
Part 1:
You and a partner will need to research information about earthquakes and volcanoes. For the earthquakes, four
major earthquakes have already been assigned as a requirement. You and your partner will choose the remaining
earthquakes- two per decade. All volcanoes have been assigned with the exception of the volcanoes in Iceland
and East African Rift Valley. You will need to select one volcano from each region that has erupted since 1900.
Create a data table of the information in Excel so that a graph can be easily constructed electronically.
