Part 3: Using a Computer Program to Locate Epicenter and Determine Intensity
In this part of the exercise you will use the Virtual Earthquake for locating the epicenter of an earthquake. Once you have located the epicenter, you will determine the earthquakes intensity using the data you generated locating the epicenter, calculating amplitude, then using the Richter Scale. The exercise is located at:
You need access to a printer, to print out your "Virtual Seismologist Certificate of Completion". It is your proof that you completed the lab. In order to get this certificate, you must make careful measurements throughout the activity. The actual certificate is much larger than the one displayed on the web site.
