More about Tsunamis

Steve Kluge and David Robison from New York, worked on seismograms as soon as these began coming on-line after the disastrous Sumatran tsunamis of December 2004. They created an inquiry-based lab exercise appropriate for high school and first year introductory level college students that involves the analysis of various aspects of data collected during and right after the quake - including locating the epicenter, timing the tsunami, measuring the human impact, and more.

Click here to see the webpage which has links to the activities.

The activity has been done by thousands of students around the world since then, and is featured in the journal of the National Earth Science Teachers' Association (NESTA).

Thank you very much for sending this link Steve; the project looks excellent.
