Whether you're looking for a map of earthquake risk in the United States or a rundown of recent global seismic action, check out the Earthquake Information Network (EQNET). The government site's more than 100 annotated links come mainly from federal and state organizations, including the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Reports on recent temblors link to assessments by USGS and other quake-measuring organizations and to news stories. Ten galleries include images such as this shot of a flattened freeway in Oakland, California, the result of the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. You can dig up plenty of other information, from job listings to instructions for building a simple shake table to test the stability of model structures.
