- Solids and Liquids
- Intermediate-focus earthquakes
- where friction prevents the rocks from moving past each other
- a What is a "locked" fault?
- b move the fastest, and are the first to be recorded
- c the area along a fault where slippage first occurs
- d occur at a depth between 70km-300km
- e What can P-waves travel through?
5 Multiple choice questions
- zone of rock where the fault is locked, and no major earthquakes have happened in a long time
- major earthquake zone that forms a ring around the Pacific ocean
- can only travel through solids, and are the second to be recored
- giant ocean wave that often occurs after a major earthquake with an epicenter on the ocean floor
- If the S-waves arrive shortly after the P-waves then the epicenter is located______ the seismograph.
5 True/False questions
Shallow-focus earthquakes → cause the most damage
Liquids → What can S-waves travel through?
Magnitude → a measure of the energy released by an earthquake
Three → How many seismograph locations are needed to locate the epicenter of an earthquake?
Magnitude → The amount of energy released by an earthquake is measured as?
