1Q-sudden movements of Earth's crust followed by a series of shocks.
2Q-The point beneath Earth's surface where rock breaks under stress and causes an earthquake.
3Q-Breaks in Earth's crust where rocks have slipped past each other.
4Q-the explanation stating that when rocks are deformed, they break, releasing the stored energy that results in the vibrations of an earthquake.
5Q-displacement along a fault that is so slow and gradual that little seismic activity occurs.
6Q-the study of earthquakes and seismic waves.
7Q-a device that writes down (records) the movements of the earth.
8Q-the record of an earthquake's seismic waves produced by a seismograph.
9Q-vibrations that travel through Earth carrying the energy released during an earthquake.
10Q-seismic waves that travel through the Earth's interior.
11Q-A type of seismic wave that compresses and expands the ground.
12Q-A type of seismic wave that moves the ground up and down or side to side.
13Q-seismic waves that travel along the Earth's surface.
14Q-the point on Earth's surface directly above the focus.
15Q-A scale that rates earthquakes according to their intensity and how much damage they cause at a particular place.
16Q-A scale that rates an earthquake's magnitude based on the size of its seismic waves.
17Q-certain materials suddenly behave as a liquid during a quake.
18Q-changes in velocity occur at compositional/physical boundaries.
19Q-Idea that at one point in time all of the continents were one super continent called Pangea..
20Q-term for the super continent which contained all the plates together.
21Q-Theory that great slabs or plates of Earth's outer layer float on a hot, semi-molten mantle. All plates are moving slowly and have rafted continents to new positions over time.
22Q-an area beneath the ocean where tectonic plates move away from each other.
23Q-The process by which molten material adds new oceanic crust to the ocean floor.
24Q-Hot mantle rises under ridges, pushing up and cracking them.
Magma intrudes into cracks widening them, and cools to form new lithosphere- thus, the seafloor "spreads.
25Q-A tectonic plate boundary where two plates collide, come together, or crash into each other.
26Q-Boundary between two plates that are sliding past each other.
27Q-The study of the alignment of magnetic minerals in rock,specifically as it relates to the reversal of Earth's magnetic poles; also the magnetic properties that rock requires during formation
1Q-sudden movements of Earth's crust followed by a series of shocks. 1A-earthquakes
