By WBOC Chief Meteorologist Dan Satterfield: John Taber is a friend of mine who works for IRIS- the Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology, and he let me know about some materials they have designed for teachers who want to use the Nepal quake as a teachable moment. The materials include pdf’s and power point slides.
