Chapter 11 Deformation of the Crust
Which type of fault motion best matches the general pattern of crustal movement at California’s San Andreas Fault?
What are 3 examples of deformation of the Earth’s crust?
Stress-The squeezing, stretching and twisting of the Earth’s crust.
Types of stress:
Fold-bend in rock layers.
Does the shape of the marshmallow lengthen during compression or tension stress?
What happens to the shape of the marshmallow during shear stress?
Describe the differences between the three types of stresses that can occur to rocks as the lithosphere moves.
2.Shear stress pulls the marshmallow in more than one direction.
3.Compression stress squeezes and shortens rocks, tension stress pulls rocks apart, and shear stress distorts the shapes of rocks.
Mountain Range-A group of mountains that are close together and formed together.
example: Cascade Range, Great Smokey Mountains, Rocky Mountains
