Earthquake! Remote-Sensing Activities


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.
