Exercises in active tectonics an introduction to earthquakes and tectonic geomorphology 1 e nicholas pinter yale university maps showing landforms created by faulting and active deformation to show students how landforms are used to infer past tectonic activity and future seismic hazard. This set of exercises is specially designed to accompany any tectonic geomorphology text emphasizing the principles and practices of problem solving it guide students through real world research problems and techniques with step by step instructions and explanations. The thesis of exercises in active tectonics is that they ought to have some familiarity with quantitative methods for determining earthquake size location repeat time and effect on structures. Learning and teaching resources on the fundamentals of plate tectonics and the basics of earthquakes are provided in this section the treatment of plate tectonics emphasizes how the distribution and properties of plates and the motions at different kinds of plate boundaries explain global scale patterns of earthquakes and volcanoes
