Description:

This booklet features a collection of articles originally published for teachers by the San Francisco Chronicle. It presents some of the new understanding gained and scientific advances made in the century since the Great 1906 San Francisco Earthquake. Topics include lessons learned from the 1906 earthquake, the use of seismograms, recognizing active faults, and the use of trenches to investigate faults. There is also discussion of earthquake prediction, some hazards associated with earthquakes, making buildings and roads safer, and a career profile of an earthquake scientist. Concepts introduced in each feature are designed to address state and national science-education standards.
