Spotlight: A Century of Quake Research


2006 marks the 100th anniversary of the infamous San Francisco Earthquake. This site, from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, links to a flash feature presenting an in-depth look at earthquakes and the topic of Plate Tectonics. The slide show identifies plate boundaries, outlines the effects of this natural disaster , and offers some very dramatic photos of the damage caused by the 1906 quake.
