Understanding Earthquakes

Understanding Earthquakes, from U.C. Santa Barbra, includes first-hand accounts of earthquakes by classic writers, an Earthquake Globe plotting earthquakes for a 5 year period, and animations of each stage in an earthquake. The animation give an earthquake a "happening" flavor and clarify the process probably better than still images would.
