Earthquake Links
The Virtual Earthquake This is a link to the first part of your computer lab exercise. Read all information, then complete the tutorial exercises for any two of the four Earthquakes (your choice as to which two you complete). Print the certificate for verification purposes for each quake and turn them in tomorrow. We will be in a computer lab again tomorrow.. If you do not complete one of your EQ's, you have to begin again. The site is dependent upon the data you enter, and as such cannot start over at the point at which you had to quit.
