plastically like molten wax c Plate Tectonics i Plate The lithosphere is broken into several plates ii Tectonics volcanic and earthquake activity Divergent boundaries i Step 1 continental rift valley forms 1 EX east African rift valley ii Step 2 narrow sea forms 1 EX red sea iii Step 3 ocean with oceanic ridge system 1 EX Atlantic ocean and midAtlantic ridge e Convergent boundaries i Oceanocean convergence two ocean plates 1 EX Aleutian islands ii Oceancontinent convergence one ocean and one continental plate 1 EX cascade mountains or Andes mountains iii Continentcontinent convergence two continental plates 1 EX Himalayas f Benioff zone earthquake zone is the area of deepening earthquakes 2 Transform Boundaries Plates slide past each other a No new crust is created or destroyed b Transform faults are strikeslip faults i Most join tow segments of an oceanic ridge ii Aid the movement of oceanic crustal material 1 EX San Andreas fault is a transform boundary P 3 Plate Tectonics a Most tectonic activity earthquakes and volcanoes is associated with plate boundaries b Generally no tectonic activity in the middle of plates c Except in rare cases like hot spots and mantle plumes 4 Mantle Plumes and Hot Spots a Mantle plumes narrow columns of hot rock that rise through the mantle i Create active volcanism on earth s surface ii Rare occasion ofvolcano in the middle of a tectonic plate b Hot Spot a point along the mantle plume at which magma is produced i Hot spots in the ocean result in seamounts c Seamount conical undersea mountains that rise 1000 s meters or more above the sea oor i Often aligned in chains Volcanic but are not earthquake prone ii Not associated with mid ocean ridges iii Plates move over hot spots and seamounts become a chain Plume is xed 5 Earthquakes shaking of the ground caused by the sudden release of energy by rocks in the earths surface a Most earthquakes occur at plate boundaries faults b Types of earthquakes 39 Divergent boundaries tension earthquakes shallow Transform boundaries shallow San Andreas Convergent boundaries 1 Shallow intermediate and deep eq due to the benioff zone being pushed deeper into the mantle Intraplate EQ 1 Mid or intra plate quakes occur within the boundaries of the tectonic plates 2 Less than 10 of all eq s 3 New Madrid fault zone a Larges eq recorded in US history occurred feb 7 1812 b Estimated 80 on Richter scale c Lead to the creation of realfoot lake c Causes of earthquakes i Elastic Rebound Theory 1 Stress put on the rocks with no movement strain sudden slip of rock along a fault 2 Stress produces strain 3 Fault breaks and the strain energy is released creates shockwaves vibrations within the earth d Seismic Waves the shock waves caused by the earthquake i Epicenter the point on the Earth s surface directly above the focus ii Focus the place within the Earth where earthquake waves originate iii 2 types ofwaves 1 Body waves pass through the earth s interior a Primary Waves Pwaves compressional the rock vibrates in a direction parallel to the direction of the wave Back and forth Secondary Waves S waves slower transverse waves Up and down 2 Surface waves travel along the Earth s surface a Cause the most earthquake damage b Love waves side to side motion c Rayleigh waves vertical motion iv Seismograph measures seismic waves and records them 1 The record is called the seismogram 2 Waves arrive in particular order a F wave primary wave b S wave secondary wave c Surface waves arrive last but are strongest H i ii39 2 P V Determining the location 1 3 stations required

strength of earthquakes a 2 limit that can be felt by people b 6 is significant c 9 caused the 2004 tsunami d scale is logarithmic i 10fold increase in ground motion a magnitude 6 is 10 times bigger than a magnitude 5 e There is no maximum value Does not adequately estimate the size of very large earthquakes 3 Moment Magnitude Scale measures very large earthquakes a Derived from the amount of displacement that occurs along a fault zone the area of the rupture surface and the shear strength of the faulted rock e Tsunami seismic sea waves produced by a large earthquake with a sub ocean epicenter Associated with convergent boundaries 1 i39 Part of the tsunami races towards land growing larger as it comes in to shore The other part heads across the ocean There is often more than one wave and the first wave is often not the biggest The tsunami can also last for hours 1 1700 in Japan 15ft from an eq that occurred near seatle f Earthquake prediction i We cannot predict when an
