Does the lithosphere cause earthquakes?
== == Earthquakes are caused by the release of frictional tension between Earth's colliding tectonic plates. The tectonic plates are part of the lithosphere.
The lithosphere is the crust of the Earth. The crust is always moving due to plate tectonics and continental drift. This can cause earthquakes.
Because the lithosphere moves witch causes the plates the crash together to form earthquakes
Earthquakes happen as a result of the movement of the plate tectonics in the lithosphere. This will cause the ground to shake and may cause a lot of damage depending on the magnitude.
Yes, the cooling of the Earth and volcanic activity is causing movement of the lithosphere initiating earthquakes.
Because there are tectonic plates there in the lithosphere.
The lithosphere is where earthquakes occur.
The Lithosphere is where earthquakes happen.
they are related by,they are plates
in the lithosphere
The lithosphere is the Earth's outermost crust. The asthenosphere is a ductile, somewhat deformable, layer 60-150 miles (100-250 km) below the Earth's surface, under the lithosphere. Movements between the two layers cause earthquakes.
Earthquakes occur in the lithosphere, which is the crust and solid brittle portion of the upper mantle. The lithosphere is broken into several pieces known as tectonic plates. Earthquakes most commonly occur at or near the boundaries between these plates.
Earthquakes are part of the Lithosphere.
Crust / lithosphere.
volcanos and earthquakes
Shallow focus earthquakes occur at the mid ocean ridges because the thin lithosphere found there is to weak to allow a large amount of strain to build up and cause larger earthquakes.
Earthquakes result when forces push plates along faults in the Earth's lithosphere. These plates are comprised of the crust and a portion of the upper mantle.
the relationship between earthquakes and plate tectonics are that plate tectonics tells us about the outer shell or also known as the lithosphere. the lithosphere is the thinnest part of the earth.
earthquakes and giant plates
Suddenly builds up
The lithosphere outermost part of any rocky planet. The earth's lithosphere is comprised of the mantle and upper crust. The lithosphere is formed of plates that fit together, and at times move and shift, causing earthquakes.
When oceanic lithosphere and continental lithosphere collide, the continental lithosphere may be obducted over the oceanic lithosphere or the oceanic lithosphere may be subducted under the continental lithosphere. The latter is thought to be more common. This subduction and obduction generally results in tectonic activity such as volcanoes and earthquakes.
Earthquakes and volcanic eruptions take place on the earth near the lithosphere and the asthenosphere
well the lithosphere and the hydrosphere have many things in common but i can only think of 2. The first one is they both cause erosion. the wind blows things over to the ocean and then the waves of the ocean take the objects in to the ocean. that pollutes the oceans. Another one is they cause earthquakes. the air gets hot and the land cracks!
The lithosphere is the outer layer of the earth's surface. It causes tectonic plates to move and create earthquakes and other geological events.
In subduction zones, the scraping lithosphere can form a ridged springboard that is loaded by the subducting lithosphere. When the load is enough to overcome the friction of subduction, it can unload within minutes causing massive earthquakes along the fault.
Lithosphere: brittle, hard, relatively colder, less dense. (where earthquakes happen due to sudden slips in rock)
The lithosphere and the asthenosphere.
This is known as the Lithosphere.
A tectonic plate is a piece of lithosphere. The lithosphere is the outer, rigid "shell" of the earth. A plate moves along the asthenosphere (layer below the lithosphere) and can be either continental or oceanic lithosphere. Volcanic activity and earthquakes are common at boundaries of individual plates.
Earthquakes are caused when energy is released as the lithosphere (crust and upper mantle) of the Earth moves. Energy is emitted in the form of waves. There are different types of waves, some move faster, slower, sideways, or up and down. A seismograph records these waves on a seismogram.
Seismic activity triggers both earthquakes and volcano eruptions, so usually both happen along fault lines, which cause seismic activity. Answer 2: They occur in similar areas because of plate tectonics, (plates of the lithosphere). Since they move, when they crash together they cause earthquakes and create volcanoes, when the plates slide past each other they cause lots of earthquakes, and when they move apart magma from the earth's core creates a volcano and earthquakes happen… Read More
It is when two plates in the earth because of the release of stress or tension in the earth's lithosphere.
no people can not be the cause of earthquakes...........
No, lightning does not cause earthquakes.
No. Volcanoes can cause earthquakes, but they are not caused by earthquakes. Both volcanoes and earthquakes are commonly found at plate boundaries
Earthquakes are one (but not the only) cause of tsunamis.
Not all faults will cause earthquakes.
Earthquakes have a geological cause.
They don't, earthquakes can cause tsunamis
Tornadoes can cause some soil erosion, but other than that they do not affect the lithosphere.
The lithosphere consists of earth's crust and the upper part of the mantle and is divided into mobile sections called tectonic plates. As these plates move relative to one another earthquakes occur at their boundaries.
Actually colliding plates cause earthquakes
Being gay cannot cause earthquakes.
No. See the related question below for what does cause earthquakes.
the process taking place in the lithosphere (natural calamities as earthquakes, tsunami, etc.) shapes the outline of the environment. other natural processes such as weathering sedimentation erosion etc. dictates the balance of ....
He saw that faults were a major cause cause of earthquakes
yes, it can cause underwater earthquakes.
Lithosphere: brittle, hard, relatively colder, less dense. (where earthquakes happen due to sudden slips in rock) Asthenosphere: partially molten, hotter, denser, plastic rheology
Well, Biosphere is the complete ecological system of Earth. Hence, it would include everything from the Core to the Earth's Magnetic Field. The biosphere can affect the lithosphere through - Earth's the Magnetic Field causes slight movements within the Core (as it is made out of Nickel and Iron, which are highly magnetic), this would cause the shifts in crust movements, which in turn COULD (NOT CAN) result in earthquakes.
Plate tectonics can cause volcanoes, earthquakes, and underwater earthquakes can cause tsunamis.
