We agreed the best way to figure out what was happening at Mt. Everest was to look for patterns in earthquake data.
Turning to an earthquake simulator and some research, we began to see that various locations around the world had both similarities and differences when it came to earthquake data. We shared out our thinking and came to an agreement on patterns we see.
While we agreed that earthquakes tend to happen in lines or clusters, and that the magnitude of earthquakes strengthens as you go inland, we also saw patterns of lines in the middle of oceans (weaker magnitudes) and along the coasts of some continents. Why is this?
We've got so many more questions...!!!
