Solutions for Chapter 6: Earthquakes
Full solutions for Focus on Physical Science: Grade 8, California | 1st Edition
Rock or soil through which groundwater moves easily.
A fine-grained igneous rock of mafic composition.
The forms of marine life that live on or in the ocean bottom.
Wastage of a glacier that occurs when large pieces of ice break off into water.
The condition that exists when the distribution of winds within a given area results in a net horizontal inflow of air into the area. Because convergence at lower levels is associated with an upward movement of air, areas of convergent winds are regions favorable to cloud formation and precipitation.
The distribution of electromagnetic radiation by wavelength.
The incorporation and transportation of material by a mobile agent, such as water, wind, or ice.
Lifting of air resulting when cool air acts as a barrier over which warmer, lighter air will rise.
A mountain valley that has been widened, deepened, and straightened by a glacier.
A short wall built at a right angle to the shore to trap moving sand.
An undulating layer of till deposited as the ice front retreats.
Inclination of the axis
The tilt of Earth’s axis from the perpendicular to the plane of Earth’s orbit.
Depressions created when blocks of ice became lodged in glacial deposits and subsequently melted.
The movement of water particles in straight-line paths that are parallel to the channel. The water particles move downstream without mixing.
A basic unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of an era. Periods may be divided into smaller units called epochs.
A positively charged subatomic particle found in the nucleus of an atom.
The study of earthquakes and seismic waves.
A large, relatively flat expanse of ancient metamorphic rock within the stable continental interior.
A flattened, rotating galaxy with pinwheel-like arms of interstellar material and young stars winding out from its nucleus.
A layer of water in which there is a rapid change in temperature in the vertical dimension.
