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
