Earthquake Lab: Locating the Epicenter, Determining the Magnitude, and
Calculating the Time of Earthquake
The goal of this lab is to learn how seismograms are used to locate the epicenter of earthquakes,
determine earthquake magnitudes, and to calculate the origin time of earthquakes.
A seismogram measures the amount of shaking caused by earthquake waves. The seismogram
first records the arrival of P-Waves (Primary), followed by the arrival of the S-Waves
(Secondary). The S – P interval is the time difference between the arrival of the P- and S- waves
and is used to calculate the distance of the seismograph station from the earthquake epicenter.
This material is discussed in the earthquakes chapter of your textbook. In addition, check out the
example already completed in Blackboard. Be sure to review both the textbook and the example
before attempting this lab.
