9Q-Passive eruption of a lava flow represents a VEI magnitude of_________
10Q-Compared to a VEI 3 eruption, a VEI 6 eruption is ______ times larger.
11Q-The largest volcanic eruption in historic time was of VEI magnitude 7. Which eruption?
12Q-T/F In terms of mass magnitude, the largest passive basalt eruptions are of similar magnitude to caldera-forming rhyolite 'supervolcano' eruptions.
13Q-There is only one known volcanic eruption of mass magnitude 9 or larger. Which eruption?
14Q-T/F Volcanoes with a long repose time (hundreds to thousands of years) typically have smaller eruptions (lower VEI) than volcanoes with a short repose time (years to tens of years).
15Q-For volcanic eruptions during the past 500 years there is a good linear relationship between VEI magnitude and number of eruptions for VEI magnitudes in the range from 2 to 7. Based on extrapolation of this trend to VEI magnitude 0 and 1 eruptions there are

18Q-Mt. Rainier is considered to be the most dangerous volcano in the United States. This is because
19Q-T/F The seismic signal produced by an underground nuclear explosion is different to the seismic signal produced by a tectonic earthquake.
20Q-T/F Rock is stronger (more difficult to break) under extension than under compression.
21Q-Blind reverse thrust fault_______________.
22Q-Normal left-lateral oblique-slip fault._____________.
23Q-At subduction zone plate boundaries faulting is characteristically of the _________ type.
24Q-Elastic-plastic behaviour of rock under stress results in the development of_____________
25Q-Elastic rebound theory was developed from observations about motion across the San Andreas fault made by
26Q-On a particular strike-slip fault the plates in contact across the fault plane have a relative velocity of 5 centimetres per year and the displacement on the fault in each earthquake is 2.5 metres. Therefore, the recurrence interval for earthquakes on the fault is _____ years.

28Q-P-waves travel through___________
29Q-The mantle of the Earth transmits_____________.
30Q-The seismic waves that travel with the lowest velocity are_____
31Q-Seismographs work on the basis of the principle of_____________
32Q-The Chinese seismoscope developed in about 130 A.D. is a simple example of a _____ seismograph.
33Q-Strong-motion seismographs are designed to operate__________
34Q-At the present day most seismograms are recorded in digital rather than analog format. This is because with digital data?
35Q-For a seismograph station with three broadband seismographs recording the vertical ground motion (Z component), the N-S horizontal ground motion (the N component), and the E-W horizontal ground motion (the E component), P-waves will show up best on the_____________
36Q-T/F The location of the epicentre of large earthquakes is always obvious because it is the location of the area of most damage.
37Q-For a single seismograph station, an indication of the azimuth of (direction to) the epicenter of an earthquake can be obtained from the__________
38Q-The USGS National Earthquake Information Center (NEIC) rapidly and accurately locates (epicentre, time, focal depth) worldwide earthquakes based on the?
39Q-The focal mechanism (beach-ball diagram) for an earthquake is determined from the____________
