Geologists use____terminology -mining -in which of the following faults does the handing wall move down relatve to the footwall? -normal dip slip fault -the fault in the figure is caused by ___ stress -shearing -which stage of the earthquake cycle may occur only hours or days prior to the next large earthquake but may not always occur? -foreshock When reporting to the public where the earthquake originated, new reports ive the location of the____ -epicenter Which is not a type of seismic wave? (p wave. S wave, love wave, surface wave) -ground wave Which of the following statements is false about p waves? -caused the most damage at the epicenter Slow damage to roads, sidewalks , buildings foundations and other structures such as that shown are a esult of a process called -tectonic creeping In which situation would you expect to experience the most shaking from the earthquake? -located 4 miles away from the epicenter, mud, farther from the epicenter The most appropriate scale to use to compare earthquakes around the world is the -moment magnitude scale How is the intensity for an area determined on the modified Mercalli intensity scale? -ppls perception of shaking and extent of damage To determine the epicenter of an earthquakes, scientists -find the intersection of P and arrival time data from 3 seismographs at different locations The greatest earthquakes with magnitudes over 9 are usually associated with -subduction zones What is a major problem with intraplate earthquakes? -there is generally a lack of preparedness because they occur less often Which is not a secondary effect of earthquakes? -ground shaking What is not a natural service function of earthquakes? -destroy natural underground dams that slow or redirect flows Human activity can cause earthquakes thru all these ways except -building over fault lines
