We invite you to enter these pages and learn about our "earthquake territory," the San Francisco Bay Area in California, U.S.A. We have produced and collected a series of presentations, videos, and activities, which we hope will educate you, whether you are a student, a teacher, or even only an interested citizen, on what it means to live in a tectonically active environment, and on how a large-magnitude earthquake will affect you. Click the links below or use the menus above to get started!
Earthquake Country Learn about earthquakes and living in the seismically active Bay Area.
For Teachers Our teaching section provides a large array of seismology resources, which include PowerPoint presentations, videos, and activities.
Preparing for An Earthquake When the next big quake occurs in the Bay Area will you and your family be ready? Learn how to prepare for an earthquake and find out what to do during an earthquake.
Videos Check out our videos section. We have a wide variety of videos created by our outreach team, which include earthquake simulations, earthquake safety videos, and presentations by our very own seismologists.
If you are near UC Berkeley's campus, come to McCone Hall and check out our interactive display in the lobby! Learn all about earthquakes and tsunamis and how they affect the Bay Area!
