Final Jeopardy

earthquake activity
Earthquake Activity

An American developed this scale to measure the magnitude of an earthquake.

Answer

Richter Scale

earthquake activity3
Earthquake Activity

This is the action of wet soil acting like a liquid.

Answer

Liquefaction

earthquake activity4
Earthquake Activity

These are ocean waves caused by an earthquake.

Answer

Tsunami or Seismic Sea Wave

earthquake activity5
Earthquake Activity

Seismologists use this scale to measure the intensity of an earthquake. Based on the destruction caused.

Answer

Mercalli Scale

earthquake activity6
Earthquake Activity

Name one warning sign of an impending tsunami.

Answer

Shoreline moves rapidly out to sea, exposing land that is usually underwater

faults
Faults

This type of fault is caused by tensional forces.

Answer

Normal Faults

faults8
Faults

A reverse fault results from this type of force.

Answer

Compression

faults9
Faults

Name the three types of forces that create faults.

Answer

Shear, Compression, Tension

faults10
Faults

In this type of fault the rocks on either side move past one another with out much up or down movement.

Answer

Strike-Slip Fault

faults11
Faults

Name an example of a strike-slip fault.

Answer

San Andreas Fault

features of earthquakes
Features of Earthquakes

These are the fastest seismic waves.

Answer

Primary Waves

features of earthquakes13
Features of Earthquakes

These are generated by an earthquake and travel through the earth.

Answer

Seismic Waves

features of earthquakes14
Features of Earthquakes

These types of waves are the slowest and cause the most destruction.

Answer

Surface Waves

features of earthquakes15
Features of Earthquakes

This type of wave causes rocks particles to move at right angles to the direction of travel.

Answer

Secondary Waves

features of earthquakes16
Features of Earthquakes

These waves move rock particles in a backward, rolling motion and a side to side, swaying motion.

Answer

Surface Waves

earthquake terms
Earthquake Terms

This is the point where the energy is just released.

Answer

Focus

earthquake terms18
Earthquake Terms

This is the point on the earth’s surface directly above the focus where surface waves radiate outward.

Answer

Epicenter

earthquake terms19
Earthquake Terms

To pin point the epicenter of an earthquake seismologists need to know the difference in arrival times of P and S waves and the location three of these.

Answer

Seismograph Stations

earthquake terms20
Earthquake Terms

Rocks will break when pressure builds up and exceeds this term.

Answer

Elastic Limit

earthquake terms21
Earthquake Terms

This is the boundary between the crust and the upper mantle.

Answer

Mohorivic Discontinuity or Moho

slide22
MISC

Vibrations produced by breaking rock

Answer

Earthquake

slide23
MISC

This is the paper record of an earthquake.

Answer

Seismogram

slide24
MISC

Seismic waves bend or stop because of changes of this

Answer

Density or Materials

slide25
MISC

The material that secondary wave cannot travel through

Answer

Liquid

slide26
MISC

Because of bending and stopping of seismic waves this area is created.

AnswerShadow zones

earthquake safety
Earthquake Safety

Why would securing gas appliances help make your home earthquake safe?

Answer

To keep them from moving a great deal during an earthquake, which would cause a less of a chance for a gas line to break and leak gas
