Earthquake Pages

National Web Sites

  • The USGS Earthquake Information Page. USGS (United States Geological Survey) main site for earthquakes: Includes real time maps of earthquake activity and seismogram displays (under "Latest Quake Info"), hazards and preparedness, and research.
  • The USGS Earthquake Hazards Program educational link, with activities, information, research, and what-to-do-if... for kids, adults and teachers. Includes an area where you can report the effects of an earthquake in your region, or see the reports of earthquake intensity in other areas. A must-see!
  • IRIS Homepage (Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology): Lots of stuff, including their newest info on their Education & Outreach Program.
  • National Earthquake Information Center: by the USGS and the World Data Center for Seismology, Denver. Earthquake searches, seismograph station locators, the catalog of routine mining seismicity, and much more.

Real-time Displays

Examples of Seismic Events

  • Archive of Interesting events from the PNSN Webicorder Displays. Mostly earthquakes, but some human activity and anomalies such as surface sediment debris flows and ice activity on Mt. Ranier. Don't miss the Swift Reservoir Power Canal Collapse - what happens when 800 million gallons of water breaks loose!
  • Experience a Virtual Earthquake! As close as you can get to a real quake while on-line. Make sure your sound is turned on, and click the "Experience a Virtual Earthquake" button in the middle of the page. Enjoy!


Volcano Pages

  • MTU Volcano Page Michigan Technological University's Volcano Page. Very nifty site, with pictures of ice and mud "volcanoes", many web links, and a volcano humor section.
  • Alaska Volcano Observatory: A joint program of the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the Geophysical Institute of the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAFGI), and the State of Alaska Division of Geological and Geophysical Surveys (ADGGS).
  • Cascades Volcano Observatory A USGS site with photo archives and the live "Volcano Cam", updated every 10 minutes for your veiwing pleasure.
  • Volcano World From the University of North Dakota, a site with a great volcanic events archive and the ever popular "Volcano Mall", for all your volcano needs.
  • Here are some interesting pictures from Hawaiian volcanoes. Taken by Ben Sambrano in 1989, with a short descriptive text matched to great photos (including the kind you would send on to insurance companies for claims on your car for "incineration and burial due to lava-flow"!)
