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.

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.

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.
