Triangulation Lab

Today’s Lab went wrong because everybody had different speeds for the waves so when all the groups came together for the lab the results were inconsistent.
One Seismometer isn’t enough having one only tells you the distance to the epicenter not the direction it’s coming from. We need more then one to triangulate were the epicenter of the earthquake is.
It is important to find the epicenter of an earthquake so we can identify the fault that caused the earthquake.
We can use this data to find out where the emergency response crew needs to go to. The area around the epicenter will hit the hardest by an earthquake.
