California’s long-term quake forecast

Level: , Topic: Restless Earth, Tectonics

An amazing resource for both GCSE and A level students. (Geographical Magazine)

A really interesting read and the film highlights well the potential impacts of earthquakes in big cities in MEDCs. It also outlines how to be prepared for a quake. Worth watching and making notes on!

GCSE students think Prediction, Planning, Preparation. What does the film/article teach you about these? Also note the potential impacts of an earthquake in a big city.

Link to Restless Earth syllabus: The need to predict, protect and prepare for earthquakes.

A level: a good case study to drop into an appropriate essay question.
