Description:

In this activity, students use walking and running speeds to simulate the difference in S- and P-wave travel times, a property used in the location of earthquakes. They will construct travel time curves using their measurements of walking and running arrival times and calculate the epicenter of a hypothetical earthquake by using triangulation.
