Lessons Learned Over Time, Volume VI-B: Mapping Amplification of Earthquake Ground Motion in Indiana Using Hands-on Science in Schools (Vol II)

by Chi Hyun Park and Jennifer Haase. An accompanying 20-page report to Volume I discusses the experiment used in middle school classes in Indiana to supplement intensity data on the Evansville earthquake. Specifically, the authors wanted to determine if the shaking during the earthquake was amplified as predicted from knowledge of the type and thickness of sediments near the surface. Since there was not complete coverage of Indiana in the map of survey responses of the felt intensity of this earthquake they asked middle school and high school students in Indiana to fill out the Internet survey about the observed effects in their locations. These observations were used to update the Community Internet Intensity Maps and analyzed to test whether the shaking is higher at sites with thick sediments than at sites at the same distance from the earthquake epicenter with thin or no sediments. 2006.
