▪ Plates grind against each other ▪ Earthquakes happen along the edges of tectonic plates ▪ The earthquakes happen along fault lines ▪ They are caused by sudden breaking of rock
▪ Seismographs ▪ Seismologists
▪ Epicenter ▪ It is straight above the focus ▪ It is the location of biggest damage ▪ Where the earthquakes originates
The fault on the top side is a normal fault The fault on the middle is a reverse fault The fault on the bottom side is a strike slip fault
▪ Continental plates work by grinding against each other ▪ Underground ▪ They create hills and/or slopes
▪ S waves caused by breaking ▪ S waves type: body waves, surface ▪ Body waves can travel through layers ▪ Surface waves
▪ Body waves: P waves ▪ Fastest kind of seismic waves ▪ Travel through rock and fluid

An earthquake is ground movements that occur when blocks of rock in Earth move suddenly and release energy. Earthquakes occur along fault lines. ◦
