review earth s surface relief features
Review: Earth’s Surface Relief Features
  • What order of relief is represented by a hill behind your house?
    • first
    • second
    • third
    • fourth
    • none of the above
review earth s surface relief features1
Review: Earth’s Surface Relief Features
  • What order of relief is represented by the Canadian Rockies?
    • first
    • second
    • third
    • fourth
    • none of the above
review crustal deformation processes
Review: Crustal Deformation Processes
  • Which of the following is incorrect regarding what happens when compressional and tensional forces are applied to rocks?
    • Folding can occur.
    • Thinning can occur.
    • Faulting can occur.
    • Subduction can occur.
review crustal deformation processes1
Review: Crustal Deformation Processes
  • A fault created when rocks are pulled apart from one another is a
    • normal fault.
    • reverse fault.
    • thrust fault.
    • strike-slip fault.
    • thinning fault.
review crustal deformation processes2
Review: Crustal Deformation Processes
  • The fault depicted is a
    • normal fault.
    • reverse fault.
    • thrust fault.
    • strike-slip fault.
    • thinning fault.
review orogenesis
Review: Orogenesis
  • Which of the following is true of orogenies?
    • Most mountain ranges are the result of a single orogeny.
    • Orogenesis continues today in many of the world’s ranges.
    • A collision between two continental plates is required for an orogeny.
    • Orogenesis generally creates volcanoes but not fault-block mountains.
review earthquakes
Review: Earthquakes
  • Which of the following most accurately explains the origin of earthquakes?
    • Cracks form in the surface as Earth’s crust cools.
    • Radioactive decay within the mantle creates explosions.
    • Volcanic magma moves suddenly within Earth.
    • A fault builds up strain until it finally moves, releasing energy.
review volcanism
Review: Volcanism
  • Which type of volcanic eruption consists of large volumes of lava and massive landforms?
    • explosive
    • effusive
    • subductive
    • extrusive
