1. Geography Project Sichuan Earthquake “China should learn from Japan to minimize earthquakes destruction in China in the future” Group 2 Fiona Kam F.4A(19) Agatha Ng F.4A(30) Vanessa Pang F.4A(31) Joanne Li F.4C ( 22 )

2. “China should learn from Japan to minimize earthquakes destruction in China in the future” Which plate movement led to Sichuan Earthquake? What were the physical factors that led to such disastrous impact? What were the human factors that led to such disastrous impact? What has the government done to minimize earthquakes destruction in future? What can we learn from developed countries to minimize earthquake destruction?

4. Which plate movement led to Sichuan Earthquake?

5. Which plate movement led to Sichuan Earthquake? China is located along the destructive plate boundary( circum-pacific belt). Because of compression force generated from sinking convection current in the asthenosphere, The Indo-Australian plate( continental plate) collided with the Eurasian Plate( Continental plate). When the two plates converge, the denser Indo-Australian Plate subducted, compression force would create friction and stress in the crust.

6. Which plate movement led to Sichuan Earthquake? Cracks are developed Faulting occurred due to the cracks. Earthquake occurred along the Longmenshan fault. When the accumulated stress was larger then the strength of rock mass, energy was then released and sent out at seismic waves through the crust causing violent vibration in the crust. Sichuan Earthquake occurred
