Earthquake 3D http://www.wolton.net/quake.html Earthquake 3D
Zoom and spin your way around the globe while viewing earthquakes in three dimensions! Control how the Earthquakes and Earth are shown. See at a glance up to seven days of global earthquake activity with this desktop Earthquake monitor.
Adjust and customize the display to see earthquakes in a variety of different ways. Filter earthquakes by size and time – then select from many display options that include quake indicators and map references. Earthquakes are shown in near real-time using the latest data from the USGS via the internet.
Earthquake 3D is FREE! Download it and use it NOW! No complicated setup or installation. Just unzip it and it's ready to go.
Earthquake Model https://earthquake.usgs.gov/ Earthquake Model
This webpage details the model made by Ross Stein and demonstrated most recently at the May 2000 USGS Open House by the Earthquake Hazards Team. The website has been constructed due to the great public interest shown at the Open House, particularly by teachers.
This website includes a TV documentary film clip, animation and photographs of the model 'in action', a lengthy model description, and associated diagrams. It also includes technical specifications (bottom of this page) to aid those wishing to build their own model.
Seismic waves http://forgefx.com/simulation-projects/education/science-simulations/ Free online interactive multimedia 3D resource designed for a middle grades science programs.
Seismic waves are vibrations that travel through Earth carrying the energy released during an earthquake. This real-time 3D application allows users to create seismic waves of any magnitude and pass them through a variety of terrains. The student can view the seismic activity in the terrain through both a textured and wire frame view.
Seismic Monitor http://ds.iris.edu/seismon/ Seismic Monitor
Seismic Monitor allows you to monitor global earthquakes in near real-time, visit seismic stations around the world, and search the web for earthquake or region-related information. You can also view seismograms and make dataset requests via its WILBER interface.
The Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology : IRIS https://www.iris.edu/hq/ The Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology : IRIS
The Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology is a university research consortium dedicated to exploring the Earth's interior through the collection and distribution of seismographic data.
IRIS programs contribute to scholarly research, education, earthquake hazard mitigation, and the verification of a Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty.
Support for IRIS comes from the National Science Foundation, other federal agencies, universities, and private foundations.

Earthquake Movies from PBS https://www.thirteen.org/wnet/savageearth/earthquakes/ To experience the drama of plate tectonics -- the jostling of the giant plates that carry continents and oceans -- try this experiment: Sit in a comfortable chair, hold your hand out, and watch your fingernails grow. That's about the average speed of a tectonic plate. But wait around long enough, and even the tortoise crawl of plate tectonics will have dramatic and deadly consequences.

Building for Earthquakes : Video http://www.harcourtschool.com/articles/video_updates/ Building for Earthquakes - Reporting: Anne McDermott
Scientists near Los Angeles are using new techniques to study the soil in an effort to learn more about earthquakes. Knowing what happens to different types of soil during an earthquake will help scientists and engineers produce earthquake-proof building materials.
