Earthquakes!!!

Earthquakes and other natural disasters can have a huge impact on cities and the people who live where an earthquake has occurred. We will explore the science of earthquakes and their effects by examining the "Great Quake of 1906" that hit San Francisco. We will use tools like Google Earth and GIS (Geographic Information Systems) to study real-time quakes, seismic hazards and shake amplification. Discover how quakes of the past direct engineers through future urban planning.
