What Caused the Chilean Earthquake? Faults Explained | Geography in the classroom | Scoop.it
What was that you felt? Faults deep underground produce different kinds of earthquakes.
dilaycock's insight:

Good explanation, with video, of the different movements in the earth's crust that cause earthquakes

a pretty decent description of why particular areas have more earthquakes than other areas. Places like these that get lots of earthquakes are much better prepared and recover much faster than areas that aren't used to them.

Earthquakes in the Classroom

"An 8.2-magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of northern Chile, generating a local tsunami.  The USGS reported the earthquake was centered 95 km (59 miles) northwest of Iquique at a depth of 20.1km (12.5 miles).  This video gives the context for this type of earthquake."

From Seth Dixon: 

 "IRIS(Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology) creates teaching resources for teachers who want to use the current events such as yesterday's earthquake in Chile as an opportunity to discuss earth's physical systems and how they impact humanity.  They've produces slides, animations and PDFs for classroom use all while you were sleeping last night."

I woke up this morning to news of a large earthquake in Chile (security camera video footage).  IRIS (Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology) creates teaching resources for teachers who want to use the current events such as yesterday's earthquake in Chile as an opportunity to discuss earth's physical systems and how they impact humanity.  They've produces slides, animations and PDFs for classroom use all while you were sleeping last night.

Terrifying Animation Shows How Chile’s Tsunami Took Over the Entire Pacific Ocean | Science | WIRED | Geography in the classroom | Scoop.it
This time-lapse animation simulates how waves caused by the magnitude 8.2 earthquake in Chile on April 1 spread across the Pacific Ocean over 30 hours. The animation really highlights the reach of a dangerous tsunami.
dilaycock's insight:

Excellent animation to show how extensive the effects of the Chilean earthquake were, and, with an increase in magnitude, how devastating the effects could have been for some Pacific nations.
