Earthquake 3D http://www.wolton.net/quake.html Earthquake 3D
Zoom and spin your way around the globe while viewing earthquakes in three dimensions! Control how the Earthquakes and Earth are shown. See at a glance up to seven days of global earthquake activity with this desktop Earthquake monitor.
Adjust and customize the display to see earthquakes in a variety of different ways. Filter earthquakes by size and time – then select from many display options that include quake indicators and map references. Earthquakes are shown in near real-time using the latest data from the USGS via the internet.
Earthquake 3D is FREE! Download it and use it NOW! No complicated setup or installation. Just unzip it and it's ready to go.
Earthquake Model http://bit.ly/6U3ybD Earthquake Model
This webpage details the model made by Ross Stein and demonstrated most recently at the May 2000 USGS Open House by the Earthquake Hazards Team. The website has been constructed due to the great public interest shown at the Open House, particularly by teachers.
This website includes a TV documentary film clip, animation and photographs of the model 'in action', a lengthy model description, and associated diagrams. It also includes technical specifications (bottom of this page) to aid those wishing to build their own model.
Earthquake/Seismic Risk Analysis using GIS for Vancouver B.C. - HazardMapping.com http://www.hazardmapping.com/ This website displays an in-depth seismic risk analysis for the downtown core of Vancouver British Columbia. The results produce an estimated number (per building) for each of the following categories: Structural Damage %, Non-structural Damage % (Acceleration-sensitive components, displacement sensitive components, and building contents), Monetary losses, slight injuries, serious injuries, life-threatening injuries, and casualties. These results are summed on a per block basis so the spatial distribution of the results could be displayed and analyzed using a GIS.
Visualize Earthquake Data In Google Earth http://searchengineland.com/080130-102402.php Visualize Earthquake Data In Google Earth
The US Geological Survey and Google are now making global earthquake data available in Google Earth as one of the layers under "Places of Interest."

Open University (UK) free online access to course materials. (8 hours)
Earthquakes shake the ground surface, can cause buildings to collapse, disrupt transport and services, and can cause fires. They can trigger landslides and tsunami – in short, earthquakes can be very destructive....
Seismic waves http://www.forgefx.com/casestudies/prenticehall/ Free online interactive multimedia 3D resource designed for a middle grades science programs.
Seismic waves are vibrations that travel through Earth carrying the energy released during an earthquake. This real-time 3D application allows users to create seismic waves of any magnitude and pass them through a variety of terrains. The student can view the seismic activity in the terrain through both a textured and wire frame view.
Seismic Monitor http://www.iris.edu/seismon/ Seismic Monitor
Seismic Monitor allows you to monitor global earthquakes in near real-time, visit seismic stations around the world, and search the web for earthquake or region-related information. You can also view seismograms and make dataset requests via its WILBER interface.

The Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology : IRIS http://www.iris.edu/hq/ The Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology : IRIS
The Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology is a university research consortium dedicated to exploring the Earth's interior through the collection and distribution of seismographic data.
IRIS programs contribute to scholarly research, education, earthquake hazard mitigation, and the verification of a Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty.
Support for IRIS comes from the National Science Foundation, other federal agencies, universities, and private foundations.

Earthquake Movies from PBS http://www.pbs.org/wnet/savageearth/earthquakes/ To experience the drama of plate tectonics -- the jostling of the giant plates that carry continents and oceans -- try this experiment: Sit in a comfortable chair, hold your hand out, and watch your fingernails grow. That's about the average speed of a tectonic plate. But wait around long enough, and even the tortoise crawl of plate tectonics will have dramatic and deadly consequences.

Building for Earthquakes : Video http://www.harcourtschool.com/articles/video_updates/ Building for Earthquakes - Reporting: Anne McDermott
Scientists near Los Angeles are using new techniques to study the soil in an effort to learn more about earthquakes. Knowing what happens to different types of soil during an earthquake will help scientists and engineers produce earthquake-proof building materials.
