San Francisco Earthquake Exercise Part II

Two years ago I posted some enhancements to an earthquake exercise by Noel Jenkins of Juicy Geography.  Since then, I've worked the practical up further

It was part of a recent first level course for Geographers here at Southampton University.

New Features:
  • Teaches students about earthquake amplification and liquefaction using YouTube videos
  • Uses Google Earth Tour Builder
  • Uses a 'clipping' technique for just showing a sub section of a YouTube video (howto)
  • Gets students to create 3 locations and then choose one of the three and justify it in the description box.
