Description:

The Earthquake Center, from the U.S. Geological Survey, provides information about recent and historic earthquakes throughout the world. Maps and animations of the world and the USA illustrate the locations of earthquakes occurring within the last seven days or the last month. Maps and lists of historic earthquakes are also provided along with scientific data, an earthquake search tool, ShakeMaps, seismogram displays, and more. In addition, a large collection of "learning links" provides interactive tools, lesson plans, and activities for K-12 classrooms.
