Description:

That swirling bard of American letters and transcendentalism, Ralph Waldo Emerson, once opined "We learn geology the morning after the earthquake." This need never be the case for educators and members of the general public who give careful consideration to this excellent pamphlet created by the United States Geological Survey. Compiled by Matthew A. D'Alessio, this document contains ten short articles on earthquakes designed for classroom use. The articles originally appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle, and they include such titles as "Find the Fault: Recognizing Active Faults", "Looking into the past with earthquake trenches", and "How do we make buildings and roads safer?". Additionally, each article contains helpful graphics, illustrations, and photographs.
