Part 3 Step 2 Question 2 Q:What do you notice about the distribution of these earthquakes? A: The earthquakes are mostly on the boundary lines.

Q:What do you notice about the distribution of these earthquakes?

A: The earthquakes are mostly on the boundary lines.

Part 3 Step 2 Question 3 Q: How does the distribution of these earthquakes compare to others? A: That they are all in groups by the Convergent Boundaries (which are the red lines). And they are all by the oceans.

Q: How does the distribution of these earthquakes compare to others?

A: That they are all in groups by the Convergent Boundaries (which are the red lines). And they are all by the oceans.

Part 3 Step 2 Question 5 Q: What type of plate boundary is associated with earthquakes that have a magnitude of 7.0 or greater? A: The occur by Convergent boundaries.

Q: What type of plate boundary is associated with earthquakes that have a magnitude of 7.0 or greater?

A: The occur by Convergent boundaries.

Part 3 Step 3 Question 4 Q: What Percentage of big earthquakes occur within 100 miles of a convergent plate boundary? A: 613 out 1286 of 48% of big earthquakes occur within 100 miles of convergent plate boundaries.

Q: What Percentage of big earthquakes occur within 100 miles of a convergent plate boundary?

A: 613 out 1286 of 48% of big earthquakes occur within 100 miles of convergent plate boundaries.

Part 3 Step 3 Question Q: What Percentage of big earthquakes occur within 200 miles of a convergent plate boundary? A: 977 out of 1286 so that is 76% of big earthquakes occur within 200 miles of a convergent plate boundary.

Q: What Percentage of big earthquakes occur within 200 miles of a convergent plate boundary?

A: 977 out of 1286 so that is 76% of big earthquakes occur within 200 miles of a convergent plate boundary.

Earthquakes in the future 10 places where Earthquakes might occur in the future. 10 Places overdue for Earthquakes Chile Northwestern U.S India Mali South Africa Algeria Turkey Russia Hawaii Mongolia Guatemala Pakistan China Australia Japan Brazil Iran India Cuba Sudan

New List: Ten Places New Technology: Scientists are always finding new ways but they have satellites that can detect earthquakes days and even weeks before they occur. Italy Greece Chad Ukraine Monaco Nigeria Albania Mali Poland Kenya

I think that Europe is going to have the next earthquake!!

Overall: I have learned that earthquakes are hard to predict and if you get enough data then you can get a sense of it, but it still needs a lot of work. Some factors that influence earthquake prediction are the weather, where you are in the world, and what technology that your using. Most of the large and/or significant earthquakes occur along the continental plate boundaries.
