Geologic map of Metro Manila
Historical Earthquake map of Metro Manila

1. Look carefully at the geologic map of Metro Manila. Use the legend to understand the
information about rocks and faults on the map. Where are the oldest rocks in Metro
Manila? The youngest?

The oldest rocks in metro manila are those who surrounds the fault line while the
youngest are the one within the vassal area of the fault line.

2. Locate faults on the map. Are the faults evenly distributed throughout the state, or do they
appear to be grouped in some ways? Do the faults seem to be located in areas with
particular landforms? If so, how might you explain that?

The faults are appeared to be grouped in a linear way. The faults are located on a
straight line across the state particularly in some landforms. The fault line seems to
move every 400years upwards given that it stays in a linear way.

3. Now, look at the earthquake map of Metro Manila. What relationships do you observe
between the features in the geologic map and where most of the earthquakes have
occurred? Record your observations in your notebook. Earthquakes happen when
stresses build up between rock layers. Eventually, when the stress is great enough, the
rock layers suddenly slip along a fault. This motion, the earthquake, releases huge
amounts of energy in all directions.

The observation that I made is that the earthquake map demonstrates oppositely from
the geologic map and most earthquakes occur on the opposite that the geologic map

4. If you were going to build a community in an area of Metro Manila where earthquakes are
least likely to occur, where would you do this? Write your reasons for why you would
plan your community in this place.

I would plan my community somewhere in between Malabon and Valenzuela. Malabon

because it is where the least earthquakes occur and Valenzuela because it has the least
flood issues. So somewhere in between Malabon and Valenzuela would be earthquake
and flood safe.
5. Where in Metro Manila are places highly likely to experience earthquakes? What is your
evidence for that?
The places that are highly to experience earthquakes are North Valenzuela, San Juan,
Manila, Taguig, East Mandaluyong

6. Online, investigate some of the largest earthquakes California has had in the past 150 years.
How are these earthquakes related to faults?

It is related in the way that it has the same linear way. It only hits on one path but giving
a lot of surrounding shake and tsunamis.

7. Investigate potential hazards in your state by going online to www.mgb.gov.ph and Project
NOAH. Search for maps of your area. Study the map's geologic patterns and the legend
and note what hazards are identified. Are there landslide deposits? Sinkholes?
Volcanoes? Others?

There are hazards like flooding and droughts, so mostly hazards around my area are
Hydro-Meteorological Hazard.

Now, investigate the geology in several national parks. Go to www.mgb.gov.ph for a geologic
map activity on different geologic hazards in national parks. Are there hazards present? What
