Response 1

THIS IS THE STUDY OF

EARTHQUAKES

WHAT IS SEISMOLOGY?

THIS IS A BREAK IN THE

EARTH'S CRUST ALONG WHICH

BLOCKS OF CRUST SLIDE

RELATIVE TO EACH OTHER

DUE TO TECTONIC FORCES

WHAT IS A FAULT?

THIS IS A CHANGE IN THE

ROCKS' SHAPE IN RESPONSE

TO STRESS

THIS TYPE OF DEFORMATION

DOES NOT LEAD TO

EARTHQUAKES BUT CAN

PERMANENTLY DEFORM ROCK

WHAT IS PLASTIC

DEFORMATION

WHEN PLATES SLIP PAST EACH

OTHER, IT IS CAUSED BY THIS

TYPE OF MOTION

CLUE 2

ROW VALUE
400 POINTS


Response 2

THE SUDDEN RETURN OF

ELASTICALLY DEFORMED

ROCK TO ITS ORIGINAL SHAPE

IS CALLED THIS

WHAT IS ELASTIC

REBOUND?

THESE ARE WAVES OF ENERGY

THAT TRAVEL THROUGH THE

EARTH

WHAT ARE SEISMIC

WAVES?

THE FASTEST TYPE OF

SEISMIC WAVES CAN TRAVEL

THROUGH SOLIDS, LIQUIDS,

AND GASES AND ARE ALSO

CALLED PRESSURE WAVES

WHAT ARE P-WAVES?

DEFORMATION OF THIS TYPE

DOES LEAD TO EQ ESPECIALLY

WHEN ROCK IS STRETCHED TO

ITS BREAKING POINT

DEFORMATION?

THIS TYPE OF FAULT CAUSES

STRONG, DEEP EARTHQUAKES

ROW VALUE
600 POINTS


Response 3

THE SECOND FASTEST

SEISMIC WAVES CAN NOT

TRAVEL THROUGH LIQUIDS

AND ARE KNOWN TO SHEAR

ROCK BACK AND FORTH

WHAT ARE S-WAVES?

THIS INSTRUMENT IS LOCATED

NEAR OR AT THE EARTH'S

SURFACE AND IS USED TO

RECORD SEISMIC WAVES

WHAT IS A

SEISMOGRAPH?

A TRACING OF EARTHQUAKE

MOTION CREATED BY A

MACHINE; ALSO KNOWN AS A

REPORT OR PRINTOUT OF

EARTH MOVEMENT

WHAT IS A

SEISMOGRAM?

SEISMIC WAVES COME IN

DIFFERENT FORMS, THIS TYPE

HAS 2 AND TRAVEL THROUGH

THE EARTH'S INTERIOR

WHAT ARE BODY WAVES?

A NORMAL FAULT, CAUSING

WEAK SHALLOW

EARTHQUAKES OCCUR AT

THIS BOUNDARY

WHAT IS A DIVERGENT

BOUNDARY?

MOST COMMON WAY TO FIND

THE EPICENTER,

SEISMOLOGISTS USE SEVERAL

STATIONS AND DRAW CIRCLES

ON A MAP, WHERE THEY ALL

INTERSECT IS THE EPICENTER

WHAT IS THE S-P TIME

METHOD?

CLUE 4

ROW VALUE
800 POINTS


Response 4

THE POINT ON THE EARTH'S

SURFACE THAT IS DIRECTLY

ABOVE THE STARTING POINT

OF AN EARTHQUAKE

WHAT IS THE

EPICENTER?

THE STARTING POINT OF AN

EARTHQUAKE INSIDE THE

EARTH WHERE IT BEGINS; YOU

MIGHT WANT TO

CONCENTRATE REALLY HARD

WHAT IS A FOCUS?

STATES THAT SECTIONS OF

AN ACTIVE FAULT WITH FEW

EQ WILL BE THE LOCATION OF

A MAJOR EQ IN THE FUTURE

WHAT IS GAP

HYPOTHESIS?

LARGE NUCLEAR EXPLOSIONS

OR MAGNETIC DISTURBANCES

ON THE SURFACE OF THE SUN

WHAT ARE SOLAR

FLARES?

THIS FAULT OCCURS WHEN

THE HANGING WALL SLIDES

DOWN RELATIVE TO THE

FOOTWALL

WHAT IS A NORMAL

FAULT?

METHOD OF MEASURING THE

STRENGTH OF AN EQ IS NAMED

AFTER THIS SCIENTIST WHO

CAME UP WITH THE SCALE

WHO IS CHARLES

RICHTER?

CLUE 5

ROW VALUE
1000 POINTS


Response 5

AREA ALONG AN ACTIVE

FAULT WHERE RELATIVELY

FEW EARTHQUAKES HAVE

OCCURRED

WHAT IS SEISMIC GAP?

PLACE WITHIN THE EARTH

WHERE THE SPEED OF SEISMIC

WAVES INCREASE SHARPLY;

LOCATED BETWEEN THE

CRUST AND MANTLE

WHAT IS THE MOHO?

DURING AN EARTHQUAKE, THIS

LOCATION ON THE EARTH

DOES NOT RECEIVE ANY

SEISMIC WAVES FROM THE

QUAKE

WHAT IS THE SHADOW

ZONE?

ONCE THOUGHT TO BE LIQUID,

IN 1936 INGE LEHMENN PROVED

IT TO BE SOLID

WHAT IS THE INNER

CORE?

THIS BOUNDARY IS CAUSED BY

THE PLATES COLLIDING

WHAT IS CONVERGENT?

AS THE STRENGTH OF THE EQ

INCREASES, SO DOES THE

AMOUNT OF ENERGY, THIS

MUCH

WHAT IS 31.7 TIMES?
