- What went wrong with today’s lab? List all the variables that disturbed our results and create a solution to make the outcome more accurate.
- Why do you need more than one seismometer station to find the epicentre of an earthquake? Why is one not enough?
- Why do you think identifying an epicentre location is important for our society?
- How could we use this data in an emergency response situation?
- There where TOO many variables to get an accurate reading on this, from different walking speeds, to leg length, to not having a steady turn on your S wave.
- because it only gives you the radius of where the earth quake came from. So if you have multiple readings, you will have a more precise reading as to where it came from.
- Because if you know where the earthquakes are hitting you can be more prepared for the next one or you can just not live there.
- to find where the most damage has been caused and to try to get there faster to save the people that took the worst of the impact
