Which is a force that acts on rock to change its shape or volume Tension Stress Shearing
define tension A Occurs where two plates come together B rocks on either side slip past each other C Occurs when two plates pull apart
which picture is an example of compression A B C
Define shearing Rocks on either side of a fault slip past each other sideways Stress that pushes a mass rocks in two opposite directions A large area of flat land A B C
A normal fault.... Cuts through rock at an angle Breaks in earths crust where rocks have slipped past each other Neither A B C
The blocks move in a reverse direction in a Normal fault Plateau reverse fault
In a _______, the rocks slip past each other sideways, with little up and down motion Strike-slip fault earthquake Normal fault
A plateau is.. a fancy sandwich A large area of flat land elevated high above sea level Bends in rock that form when compression shortens and thickens Earth's crust A B C
The shaking and trembling that results from movement of rock beneath Earth's surface is an example of... Earthquake Seismic waves Magnitude
The______ is the area beneath Earth's surface where rock that was under stress begins to break or move epicenter Plate Focus
The point directly above the focus epicenter Crust Seismograph
P waves... seismic waves that compress and expand the ground Vibrations from the core shake the ground violently A B C
the seismic waves that can vibrate from side to side or up and down P Waves S waves Love Waves
records and measures an earthquakes seismic waves Richter scale Moment magnitude scale Seismograph
______ move more slowly than P and S waves, but they can produce severe ground movements. Surface Waves P waves Seismic waves
Rates the amount of shaking from an earthquake Richter scale Moment Magnitude scale Modified Mercalli scale
The single number that geologists assign to an earthquake based on the earthquakes size Magnitude Seismic wave folds
The richter scale rates the magnitude of small earthquakes based on the size of the earthquake's waves as recorded by seismographs True false
The moment magnitude rates... The seismic waves released by an earthquake A The total energy an earthquake released B The size of the earthquake C
The pattern of lines that is the record of an earthquake's seismic waves produced by a seismograph is called a seismogram True false
Earthquakes Nelsons Class Earthquakes An earthquake is the shaking and vibrating of the earth caused by large and sudden releases of energy that.

Earthquakes. Earthquakes are natural vibrations of the ground, caused by: Fractures in earths crust Volcanic eruptions.
Earthquakes: vibrations through earth’s crust – Occur when rocks under stress slip or shift along a fault Normally, rocks are pressed together tightly.
Birth of a Theory Continental Drift and Plate Tectonics.

Chapter 15 EARTHQUAKES! BFRB Pages Earthquake causes An earthquake is the shaking of the Earth’s crust caused by a release of energy The movement.
EARTHQUAKES. What are Earthquakes? The shaking or trembling of the earth/ground caused by the sudden release of energy Usually associated with faulting.
Chapter 9: Earthquakes 9.1: Earthquakes occur along faults 9.2: Earthquakes release energy 9.3: Earthquake damage can be reduced.
Features of Earthquakes Chapter 11, Section 2. Focus The point on a fault where rocks break and energy is released.
Plate Tectonics. Brief Structure of the Earth Divided into layers: –Core, mantle, crust.
1.Tension – stretches rock, they become thin in the middle 2. Compression – pushes rock together, squeezes rock until it folds or breaks 3. Shearing –

What is an Earthquake? Chapter 8, Section 1. Earthquakes Earthquake – vibration of Earth produced by the rapid release of energy Focus – the point within.
Earths Crust Convection currents Continental drift – idea that continents have moved slowly to their current positions due to convection currents in.
