SO503 Exam 2, Spring 2015

 Get this data file with earthquake data for the Tohuku earthquake in Japan.  The original source of the data is at http://www.globalcmt.org//Events/. There are other sources of earthquake data that would be easier to use; this format has detailed information on the geometry of the fault surface and provides a wealth of information for plate tectonics (and SO461 if you were to take it and come to  love beach balls).

Here is a description of the ndk format.  Note that each earthquake has five lines of data, and you only need a few of the values.

Do the following, all in Matlab code (your code should work with another file with >40K earthquakes)
