Hazards Chapter 1 and 2 Review: Name__Aubree Blake_____ Review Questions: What is the difference between prediction and forecast? (2 pts) The difference between prediction and forecast is that forecast is dealing with probabilities. Both are a statement that an event in the future will take place at a certain location and time, but forecast includes probability. What is the general relationship between the frequency and magnitude of an event? (2 pts) Both the frequency and the magnitude of an event can be forecasted by using recurrence intervals. They can both be somewhat pin pointed by using probability of when an event happened and what size it was in the past. Distinguish between Earth’s crust, lithosphere, asthenosphere, and mantle. (4 pts) The Earth’s crust is the top layer of the Earth and contains continental and oceanic crust. The lithosphere includes the crust but also contains the uppermost part of the mantle. The asthenosphere is made up of the middle section of the mantle and has a more plastic consistency. The mantle is the middle section of the earth that is extremely dense and heavy. It also makes up around 80% of the Earth’s volume. What are the main types of lithospheric plate boundaries described in terms of relative motions? Provide a real example of each (name and location). (4 pts) There are Divergent Plate Boundaries, which are when two plates push away from each other. The East African Rift is an example of a Divergent Plate Boundary. There are Convergent Plate Boundaries, which are when two plates push toward each other, which can create subduction. An example of a Convergent Plate Boundary is the Ring of Fire. There are also Transform Plate Boundaries. These are when two plates slide past one another, such as the San Andreas Fault. What direction is the Pacific Plate currently moving based on Figure 2-15? How fast is the plate moving? (3 pts) The Pacific Plate is currently moving North West. The plate is moving at about 9 cm per year. Discussion Questions: What are potential benefits of living in hazardous areas? In other words, why do people continue to move to areas with known hazards (i.e. Los Angeles, San Francisco, Tokyo etc.)? (5 pts) Some of these places are very appealing, consisting of cities and beaches. In some eyes the good of these places outweighs the bad. The fact that they get to live on the beach of California overrules the possibility of an earthquake occurring and causing massive destruction. Some people also may think that since the chances are small, that these hazards will never happen to them while they are living in these places. Thinking that the bad will never happen to them makes the place seem fine and compels them to ignore the risks that come with living in a hazardous area. Explain the role of Earth material densities with respect to Earth’s features such as mountains and mid- ocean ridges. For example, why is the top of basaltic crust below sea level while the surface of granitic crust is generally above sea level? (5 pts) The more dense the material, the further down it will be. The Earth material will sink or rise on the surface of water and will therefore be seen as above or below sea level. So the basaltic crust is more dense than sea level therefore putting it below due to sinking deeper down. The granitic crust is above sea level because the materials that it is made up of are less dense than sea level causing it to float higher on the water. There is also part of the mass of earth that will be submerged either in water or the earth material. They are considered roots that go into the crust and mantle of the Earth. The differences of densities also has an influence on the temperature of the crust.
