Description:

In this and similar assignments students have to download quantitative natural hazard data from the Internet, load it into a spreadsheet, rank order the data, calculate recurrence times and plot the result on a log-log graph. They then interpret this graph in terms of the recurrence time of hazard events of different sizes. In many cases this includes comparing results from two different features (volcanoes, faults, rivers, etc.) Uses online and/or real-time data Addresses student fear of quantitative aspect and/or inadequate quantitative skills Uses geophysics to solve problems in other fields Addresses student misconceptions
