INTRODUCTION

A wave is a traveling disturbance that carries energy from place to place. Waves occur in different forms in nature.

In this activity you will research the types of waves that are responsible for  two events in nature:

Earthquakes and
Tsunamis

The Physics concepts learned in class will help you to understand these phenomena.
TASK

By the end of this PhysicsQuest you will have learned the how waves travel to produce earthquakes and tsunamis.
PROCESS AND RESOURCES

The PhysicsQuest is divided into two sections. Each section contains links to internet sites that  will help you answer the questions.

PART I. EARTHQUAKES

PART II. TSUNAMIS
