Write two sub-headings in your notes: 1. Estimates [predictions] of the probability [in space and time] of an earthquake occurring in San Francisco. 2. Estimates of the potential impact in lives and property of an earthquake hazard in San Francisco.
How can EQ’s be predicted? Write notes on 2 methods used… • http://tc.engr.wisc.edu/uer/uer96/author3/index.html • http://science.howstuffworks.com/nature/natural-disasters/earthquake7.htm • http://www.livescience.com/6935-method-promises-earthquake-prediction.html • Also, use the .ppt entitled “EQ Prediction Methods”.
For your MEDC and LEDC EQ Case Studies… • Had the earthquake been predicted? • What degree of prediction had been given? • What actions [if any] had been taken due to the predictions?
