1. What kind of pattern do you see in the event locations? Hint: Can you connect the dots?
2. Does the pattern in the event locations relate to any other observable pattern on the shaded
relief map? What features are found near the event locations?
3. What might be happening in the earth’s crust to explain this repeating pattern?
4. Based on your observations of the shaded relief map of the earth, do you think this kind of
relationship could occur in other areas? ______. Give examples and defend your answer.
5. Now go to the program Seismic Eruption – Smithsonian Exhibit Version and run program.
How do the occurrences in this program compare to your results? Based upon your
observations, where do most of the world’s earthquakes and volcanoes occur?
