Seattle Tries to Get Back to Normal. This is a CNN archive story of the Seattle Earthquake of February 28, 2001.
USGS Education. This is a listing of videos and animations. Click on earthquake in the search field and a number of resources will appear. There are 12 earthquake related videos and animations. The most applicable are When the Bay Area Quakes (a 22 minute documentary of the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake), Parkfield Earthquake Video (2004 Parkfield Quake), Bay Area Earthquake Ground Motion Simulation (for 1906 San Francisco Earthquake and the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake), High Quality Earthquake Animations (show ruptures along different types of faults), Fault Interactions and Large Complex Earthquakes in the Los Angeles Area: San Jacinto fault ( interaction of the San Andreas, San Jacinto and the Sierra Madre Cucamonga fault systems), Alaska Earthquake Seismic Waves (animation from a 2002 quake), The Northern California Earthquake, April 18, 2006, (animation of the epicenter rupture speeds and intensity of the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake).
The Pacific Northwest Seismic Report hosted by the University of Washington has data on the Seattle Earthquake's magnitude and intensity.
Hosted by the PBS website, this segment from the Jim Lehrer News Hour is an interview with Randall Updike, chief scientist for the geologic hazards team at the U.S. Geological Survey in Colorado.
"You Don't Need a Seismograph to Study Earthquakes" is an online lesson hosted by PBS and the Jim Lehrer News Hour. It contains demonstrations that can be done with a slinky and a rope to teach earthquake students about p waves and s waves. There are also activities to teach about lithospheric boundaries and plate behavior.
This USGS site has many photographs of the damage caused by the Loma Prieta Earthquake.
Hosted by the University of Berkeley, this site gives factual data and reference to additional resources for the Loma Prieta Earthquake
The Great Alaska Earthquake and Tsunamis or 1964. Thomas Sokolowski hosted by NOAA. The site describes the destruction caused by the 1964 quake and tsunami.
The site describes the tsunami that accompanied the 1964 Alaska earthquake.
This is a plate tectonic activity that has demonstrations of a Divergent Boundary, Convergent Boundary, Collisional Boundary, and a Transform Boundary.
"Plate Tectonics The Rocky History of an Idea" is a narrative of the history of the theory of plate tectonics.
This animated display of the movement of the continents over time from over 700million years ago to the present. It has descriptions of each geological time periods (Cenozoic, the Mesozoic, the Paleozoic, and Precambrian)
The earthquake hazards page hosted by the USGS contains facts on earthquake hazards as a national threat.
This companion site for the Essentials of Geology textbook has a number of interactive features for each chapter. These include animations feature articles, crossword puzzle, self test, key terms, and a guide to reading. I found the information in Chapter Two: The Way the Earth Works: Plate Tectonics and Chapter 8: A Violent Pulse: Earthquakes useful as instructional reading. The animations are useful teaching tools.
