Restless Earth Case Studies Quiz

A quiz on the case studies I have looked at for Restless Earth. Obviously, if these aren't the same for your course then either guess or leave the ones you don't know. And of course, these are just the facts I have been told. If you believe these to be wrong for any reason feel free to tell me and I will check. Most of the things you need to know are effects, which are difficult to ask questions about.. so make sure you know them too.

I hope the layout of the questions is easy enough to answer.

Report

The magnitude of Mount St Helens was 4.1 but it wasn't on the list so I picked the closest one to it. Just thought I would let you know. But apart from that I thought it was very good. Very well done.
