Educational Seismology

(for middle- and high-school teaching)

GaESN The Georgia Tech Educational Seismology Network

Teaching Activities, Exercises for teaching about the earth using seismic data.

Workshops, Three Teachers Earthquake Workshops have been sponsored at Georgia Tech. We hope to hold another workshop in summer 2002, email in interested.

Seismometers for teaching Some basic information on how to make or purchase a seismometer.

Seismometer needs home:  Georgia Tech has an AS-1 seismometer to place in a school.  This is the same seismometer that is part of the IRIS “seismometer in schools” program. Email if you are interested.  Use the same application as for IRIS.

Seismometer Calibration: Instructions on how to calibrate a homemade seismometer.

Calibration of the AS-1, a technique to calibrate any AS-1

Example of Magnitude calculation using the AS-1 Displacement Response Curve.
