Part 2/8 The Role of Observed Data
In this video, we introduce the role the seismologists will play in the investigation and how seismic data from a real earthquake will contribute to our exploration of Earth's interior.
Tutorial to accompany the Lesson, "Determining and Measuring Earth's Layered Interior"
Students work first in small groups, and then as a whole class to compare predicted seismic wave travel times, generated by students from a scaled Earth model, to observed seismic data from a recent earthquakes. This activity uses models, real data and emphasizes the process of science.
