Sayeda Quratul Ain Akbar, a student from Skardu near the Siachen Glacier, obtained real time data of seismic activities (a.k.a. earthquakes) in the region. The travel time curves of the S and P waves were plotted to estimate the epicenters and magnitudes of seismic events. A classroom demo was also prepared to demonstrate the seismic waves. The project will become a permanent feature of the Physics Lab, recording real time seismic activities as well as an educational resource for the classroom.
