Resources for teaching about the Japanese earthquake

On the Cutting Edge, an NSF-funded program to the National Association of Geology Teachers (NAGT) for professional development of geoscience faculty, has a website with a collection of resources about the recent Japanese megaquake.

The 2011 Japan Earthquake and Tsunami site has some great stuff.  Here's an example of before and after satellite images of various affected by the tsunami (on the website, the images have some interactivity).

Another example is this animation:

Here's a seismogram from the University of Portland:

Great resources for the classroom!
