The launch of a new GVP website is scheduled for Monday, May 20, 2013.
This CD-ROM contains four informative interactive computer programs based on global datasets for earthquakes and volcanic eruptions since 1960. Earthquakes Through Time and Eruptions Through Time display these events in time sequence on world and regional physiographic maps. The Smithsonian Exhibit Version combines these datasets in a simplified format ideal for classroom and museum settings. Seismic Waves highlights six large earthquakes and shows how the resulting seismic-wave fronts travel through the Earth and across its surface. Runs on Windows 9x/NT/2000/XP.
Taken together these four programs reveal the excitement of modern seismology and volcanology and show how earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, event by event, build a record that scientists use to understand the basic workings of our planet.
Free annual data updates can be downloaded from this website (see Data Updates section below).
