Geologic map of Metro Manila Historical Earthquake map of Metro Manila Notebook Pen

Procedure:

  • 1. Look carefully at the geologic map of Metro Manila. Use the legend to understand the

information about rocks and faults on the map. Where are the oldest rocks in Metro Manila? The youngest?

The oldest rocks in metro manila are those who surrounds the fault line while the youngest are the one within the vassal area of the fault line.

  • 2. Locate faults on the map. Are the faults evenly distributed throughout the state, or do they appear to be grouped in some ways? Do the faults seem to be located in areas with particular landforms? If so, how might you explain that?

The faults are appeared to be grouped in a linear way. The faults are located on a straight line across the state particularly in some landforms. The fault line seems to move every 400years upwards given that it stays in a linear way.

  • 3. Now, look at the earthquake map of Metro Manila. What relationships do you observe between the features in the geologic map and where most of the earthquakes have occurred? Record your observations in your notebook. 

Earthquakes happen when stresses build up between rock layers. Eventually, when the stress is great enough, the rock layers suddenly slip along a fault. This motion, the earthquake, releases huge amounts of energy in all directions.

The observation that I made is that the earthquake map demonstrates oppositely from the geologic map and most earthquakes occur on the opposite that the geologic map displays.

  • 4. If you were going to build a community in an area of Metro Manila where earthquakes are least likely to occur, where would you do this? Write your reasons for why you would plan your community in this place.

I would plan my community somewhere in between Malabon and Valenzuela. Malabon because it is where the least earthquakes occur and Valenzuela because it has the least flood issues. So somewhere in between Malabon and Valenzuela would be earthquake and flood safe.

5. Where in Metro Manila are places highly likely to experience earthquakes? What is your evidence for that? The places that are highly to experience earthquakes are North Valenzuela, San Juan, Manila, Taguig, East Mandaluyong

5. Where in Metro Manila are places highly likely to experience earthquakes? What is your evidencewww.mgb.gov.ph and Project NOAH. Search for maps of your area. Study the map's geologic patterns and the legend and note what hazards are identified. Are there landslide deposits? Sinkholes? Volcanoes? Others? • There are hazards like flooding and droughts, so mostly hazards around my area are Hydro-Meteorological Hazard. Now, investigate the geology in several national parks. Go to www.mgb.gov.ph for a geologic map activity on different geologic hazards in national parks. Are there hazards present? What kind? " id="pdf-obj-1-6" src="pdf-obj-1-6.jpg">

6. Online, investigate some of the largest earthquakes California has had in the past 150 years. How are these earthquakes related to faults?

It is related in the way that it has the same linear way. It only hits on one path but giving a lot of surrounding shake and tsunamis.

7. Investigate potential hazards in your state by going online to www.mgb.gov.ph and Project NOAH. Search for maps of your area. Study the map's geologic patterns and the legend and note what hazards are identified. Are there landslide deposits? Sinkholes? Volcanoes? Others?

There are hazards like flooding and droughts, so mostly hazards around my area are Hydro-Meteorological Hazard.

Now, investigate the geology in several national parks. Go to www.mgb.gov.ph for a geologic map activity on different geologic hazards in national parks. Are there hazards present? What kind?
