Editor's Note: This is the second of a two-part Eduquakes series on educational shake tables. In Seismological Research Letters 78(3), Eduquakes provided a brief survey of low-end shake tables and activities; here Shirley Dyke and co-authors describe an ongoing effort to allow wide access (via the Internet) to more sophisticated shake tables. These bench-top tables are capable of matching realistic earthquake ground motion and would enhance any seismology class. For example, students could first calculate the expected waveforms from an earthquake and then test the effects on a model building, thereby providing a system-level “rupture-to-rafters” understanding of earthquakes and...
