Earthquake Knowledge and Experiences of Introductory Geology Students.
Barrow, Lloyd; Haskins, Sandra
Journal of College Science Teaching, v26 n2 p143-46 Nov 1996
Explores introductory geology students' (n=186) understanding of earthquakes. Results indicate that the mass media seem to provide students greater details about the cause and impact than the actual experience itself, students lack a broad understanding about the theory of plate tectonics, and introductory geology students have extensive misconceptions about earthquakes. Contains 14 references. (JRH)
