If you are working on the Event-Based Science module called Earthquake! this page is for you. It takes you to two remote-sensing activities that will help you with the Task.
Earthquake! Activity 1 provides Landsat images from NASA that you will use to analyze urban development with respect to seismic activity.
Earthquake! Activity 2 allows you to investigate “recent” seismic activity along faults in the San Francisco Bay region of California.

Mapping Urban Development in the San Francisco Bay Region Both the San Francisco Bay and the Baltimore-Washington datasets (165 Kbytes) document the dramatic increase in urban development following World War II and continuing to the present day.
If you you would like to try one or both activities with your students, we want to hear from you. Please print out, complete, and return an evaluation form for each activity you use.
