- a the rock on a normal fault that hangs above
- b rocks on either side of the fault slip past each other sideways, with little up or down motion
- c A type of seismic wave that moves the ground up and down or side to side.
- d same as a reverse fault except the blocks move in the opposite direction
- e developed to rate earthquakes according to the level of damage at a given place.
5 Multiple choice questions
- rating of an earth quake's magnitude based on the size of the seismic waves.
- stress that pushes a mass of rock in two opposite directions
- the force that opposes the motion of one surface as it moves across another surface
- a fold in rock that bends downward to form a valley
- the fault is at an angle so one block of rock lies above the fault while the other block lies below the fault.
5 True/False questions
magnitude → a fold in rock that bends upward into an arch
stress → a force that acts on rock to change its shape and volume.
plateau → A type of seismic wave that compresses and expands the ground.
moment magnitude scale → developed to rate earthquakes according to the level of damage at a given place.
compression → stress force that pulls on the crust stretching rock so that it becomes thinner in the middle.
