MWeinhouse: Aloha Edwin, I'm beginning my Waves chapter and was wondering…
I'm beginning my Waves chapter and was wondering if you had any info on the earthquakes on Hawaii island to tell me if there were current examples of P- and S- waves? Just thought I could tie the chapter into current events. On another topic, I am ready to send back the equipment I borrowed. Can you tell me how to do that? I would normally send you an email but my school email is down.....UGH! Thanks again for all you do.
I'm glad you found the earthquake resources link on our page. Also, I want to share a few links related to the last major earthquake on Big Island.

This page includes a teachable moment presentation package which included a nice visualization of how the waves from this earthquake propagated through the planet.
