The study of Earth using the combination of Geology and Physics, it lets us understand what is going on under the Earth's surface. Find questions on different types of seismic activities such as earthquakes and volcano eruptions here.

It would not be here according to science the sun will is come a red giant and overcome the earth and destroy it.
Predominantly due to friction. Major earthquakes (the ones you hear  about on the news) occur at collision (where two tectonic plates  are smashing together) and conservative (where two plates slide  side-by-side) boundaries.   Rocks (which obviously make up tectonic plates) can undergo two ...
What will I be able to do when I've finished this with the rational and irrational numbers.
It sound like you have a sever case of Athlete's foot. A good way to test, is to use some Anti-Fungal medication and see if it starts to clear up.
Most earthquakes occur along the Pacific Ring of Fire, which is  along the top half of the pacific plate.
The Alaska earthquake of 1964 occurred along a subduction zone,  which consists largely of reverse faults.
There is the Crust, Mantle, Outer core, and Inner core. There isn't  really much to them. They are just the layers of the Earth
Surface wave cause the most damage during an earthquake.
  That would be the degree of luster.
the active boundary between plates is a ?
Magma on the earth surface is called lava.Magma is mixture of  molten rocks and other solid particles. The liquid underground is  called magma and on the earth surface is called lava.
The Volcano is kilauea and muana in huawii is the most active volcano have more eruption.
an underwater volcano is kick 'em Jenny and im a bum
Seismology is a study of the motions of the Earth's crust. Earthquakes are the most well known of these motions, but there are places where the crust is in motion all the time. Plate tectonics involves seismology, because the motion of plates relative to each other is what causes many earthquakes....
suduction or sea floor spreading
Folded mountains form when rock layers are squeezed together and pushed upward
                               A VOLCANO WITH LAYERS OF DUST,ASH,ROCK,AND LAVA.
Plates move because the the crust is in a higher elevation, therefore the crust is on top of the oceanic crust so that is why plates move.
a hot spot is a volcanically active area that is located far from a tectonic plate boundary
The mid Atlantic ridge is a divergent plate boundary.At divergent boundaries, two plates move apart from each other and the space that this creates is filled with new crustal material sourced from molten magma that forms below.
Eventually the oceanic crust, along with the magnetically aligned minerals contained within, will be subducted into the mantle.
Primarily of basalt, with a crust of sediment or sedimentary rock.
neither plates are pushed under the other.
they are Permian, Triassic, Jurassic, Cretaceous, and today
On the base of the agar plate.
Everywhere north of the Arctic Circle and south of the AntarcticCircle has at least one day per year without a sunset and at leastone day per year without a sunrise. The closer you get to the polesthe longer the periods of constant daylight and constant darkness.Directly at the geographic poles...
I think the answer might be faults but I am not sure. Hope I  helped.
Right now the earth is rotating one revolution every 24 hours. That doesn't seem like much - it is only 0.0007 RPM. But the earth has a huge circumference. If you were to tie a string around the equator, it would be nearly 25,000 miles long. That means that if you could somehow stand stationary...

what is the main difference between geolgical studies and the sonar  studies
Ocean to ocean , ocean to continent and continent to continent
you no that no one knows well i dont lol just kidding it : inner core, outer core, mantle, and crust
If the pacific plates continue to move it will form another Pangaea ,it is the moving of plates which formed all the continents if happens again the continents could form a super continent or drift further apart .
Divergent boundaries because the plates are going away from one another.
RICHTER SCALE  The Richter scale (known as the local magnitude scale to  seismologists) was originally developed to measure small to  moderate magnitude earthquakes in southern California by Charles  Richter and Beno Gutenberg. The numerical levels indicate the  energy released by a particular...

Continental drift is a hypothesis so there is no actual proof or evidence of it, but rather opinions and views suggesting the possibility of it.
  Minnows constitute the family Cyprinidae of the order Cypriniformes. Most of the members of the minnow family are only a few centimeters in length, but India's mahseer measures up to 2.7 meters and some weigh more than 45 kg. Minnows are the largest family of fish, including more than 2,000...
According to the US Geological survey the Haitian Earthquake had the capacity to cause some minor structural damage to buildings as far away as 300 km from the Earthquakes epicentre (level V or 5 on the Modified Mercalli Intensity scale. It was felt by humans as far away as Guantanamo in Cuba ...
It should be magma is the hottest because it is usually molten rock  that has not reached the surface during an eruption.    Lava is 2nd hottest. It is the molten rock we see when a crack in  the crust of the earth or a volcano eruption allows molten rock  from beneath the crust to come up.
No. If a a rock is "aphanitic" it means that it is so fine-grained  that it is impossible to tell which minerals are present in the  matrix. The magma itself is not aphanitic. It is the rapid cooling  of the magma that inhibits crystal growth and in turn make the  rock's matrix aphanitic....
The basalt of the oceanic plate is more dense than the  granite in the continental plate.
Yes. Think about the Pacific "Ring of Fire", the region that is prone to earthquakes and volcanic activity which surrounds, or "rings", the Pacific Ocean (Wikipedia). Most volcanism in the Andes, North America, Aleutian Islands, Japan, etc. can be related to subduction of oceanic crust under...
It is important to geologists because it helps scientist view Earth. They learned hat the planets lithosphere has been in motion for millions of years. today, the theory helps them to explain Earths past and to predict what might happen along plate boundaries.
yes mount rainier is located along a convergent plate boundary.
Rocks in the lower mantle are hot and soft (but not molten). The lower mantle flows slowly, at a rate of a few centimeters per year.
it is not a man made structure. i think it was formed by.......
I'm not too sure but i think it is the convergent plate boundary
Wegener noticed several things about the land masses on the Earth. The first being that some land masses are shaped like the pieces of a jigsaw, Africa's West coast mirroring South America's East coast for example. He looked at the rock layers in these countries and found that the rock layers were...
yes if you look on google you can find it there you mug
  the volcanoes are mainly found on tectonic plate boundaries
A tsunami can be very tragic on the human population if proper mitigation and evacuation measures are not followed. Major losses of life and property will take place. One such event was the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami. Humans who survive this terrible ordeal will the be forced to start their lives...
The Pacific plate is mostly oceanic lithosphere while the North American plate is mostly continental lithosphere.
Rocks vary in composition depending the availability and type of mineral present during their formation.
Earthquakes are largely caused by the movement of crustal plates or shifting faults   -tectonic in origin    SOURCE: high school science today I (page 213)    BY: Asther (Rayane_14)
The elastic-rebound theory was found from the 1906 San Francisco earthquake
Often, but not always! The definition of a fossil is a whole, part or impression of an organism from a past geologic age, embedded in natural materials, such as rock, sediment, resin, petrified bones, or wood.
It wasn't three continents it was all of them.
P-waves (Primary Waves) -- Body Wave S-waves (Secondary Waves) -- Body WaveSurface Waves (Rayleigh and Love)The 3 types of seismic waves are P waves, S waves and surface waves.
