IRIS is committed to supporting educators in their need for “virtual” investigations and e-learning as a result of stay-at-home orders. Through June 19th, IRIS will be releasing a weekly 'Teachable Moment' that offers an opportunity for teachers and students to explore various elements of seismology. These will be offered in addition to our regular earthquake summaries. This week’s investigation focuses on earthquake shaking. While the magnitude of an earthquake is an important way to desc...

This week’s lab builds on the learning from prior weeks as students will explore how earthquakes move the ground in three-components of motion… and how that motion is recorded by modern seismographs (Vertical, N-S, and E-W motion). Students will explore how and why we identify P and S wave arrivals on particular components of motion (e.g.... [more]
