Earthquakes

Earthquakes. Vibration of earth produced by rapid release of energy (seismic waves) with radiate in all directions from the source (focus) Elastic Rebound Theory Explains how this works. Like ripples from dropping a stone in a pond, energy dissipates with distance.

Earthquakes

Earthquakes. How they happen and what we can learn from them. What causes most earthquakes on Earth?. 1) Stress  pressure is applied to sections of rock in different directions 2) Strain  rocks deform from their original shape 3) Fracture  rocks break

Earthquakes

Earthquakes

Earthquakes. Chapter 12. What’s an Earthquake?. Earthquakes are movements of the ground that are caused by a sudden release of energy when along a fault move. Occur when rocks under stress shift suddenly along a fault. Stress is a force that can change the size & shape of rocks.
