Homework Help: geography

Posted by freddie on Tuesday, October 13, 2009 at 2:14pm.

Case study 1
Country:Japan, Date:17th Jan 1995,
Area:Kobe, Type of settlement:City,
Tectonic plates involved: Pacific plate and Eurasian plate, Richter Scale magnitude:7.3, Duration of earthquake:20 seconds, Estimate death toll:6500.
Case study 2
Country:Indian, Date:1st Sept 1993, Area:Maharashara, Type of settlement:Agricultural, Tectonic plate involved:Indian plate (centre),Ricter Scale magnitude:6.2-6.5, Duration of earthquake:30 seconds, Estimate death toll:5000 (half of the population)

My questions are write down most significant differences between the cases and most significant similarity between the cases.

My answers are:
differences = type of settlement, death toll, richter scale, country, different time of year.
similarity = duration of earthquake, both countries by oceans.

Please could you check this, also should I mention the plates although I am not sure what the answer would be.
Thanks
