How are tectonic plates involved in causing earthquakes and volcanoes?
the tectonic plates shake under the earth causing earthquakes
If the tectonic plates are under stress they can sometimes slip causing earthquakes, volcanoes, mountains and ocean trenches.
The tectonic plates crash together and the weaker one goes underneath causing the stronger to be pushed up to form these volcanoes. Earthquakes are the first stage of this process.
volcanoes and earthquakes often occur on fault lines, which are like giant cracks in the earth that separate the Earth's tectonic plates. The fault lines cause earthquakes when 2 of the tectonic plates scrape against each other while they are shifting around, causing the giant vibrations that are earthquakes. The volcanoes are formed because the fault lines are spots in the earth where the hot lava can easily escape from the earth's core to the… Read More
No, but they are very related. Tectonic plates shift which could cause earthquakes because of the strong vibrations and could also cause the pushing up of magma, causing the volcano to erupt.
The amount of sushi in japan put pressure on the tectonic plates, causing a massive earthquake. Ninjas were also involved. Or were they?
They are more likely to occur on places/countries that are on Tectonic plate boundaries. This is because a tectonic plate boundary is when earth is raised above the normal level causing the ground to shake. When the earth rises it can form small volcanoes that get bigger and it will erupt a lot after then. :D
alright so when tectonic plates meet there are earthquakes because when the plates collide with each other because the earth is always moving it creates giant earthquakes that push and pull the tectonic plates on the crust of earth causing earth quakes. Volcanoes form at the boundaries of tectonic plates because it is one of the only places on the earths crust where there are holes in the crust so the liquid mantle (lava) can… Read More
Japan is on the Pacific Rim at the conjunction of tectonic plates causing a large number of earthquakes and volcanoes. It also lies at latitudes prone to hurricanes.
Plate boundries frequently move, causing plates to overlap and causing earthquakes.
Tectonic plates build up stress between each other and suddenly release decades or even centuries of stress, causing earthquakes. Volcanoes that have lots of pressure built up can also cause earthquakes.
Earthquakes rupture the arths tectonic plates causing major distruction throught the country.
They are both caused by the plates under the earth being unstable, therefore moving causing vibrations and the outcome is either volcanoes or earthquakes.
simply, because tectonic plates move due to lava currents making them hit each other causing earthquakes
The tectonic plates and the fault lines create movements that most commonly create earthquakes. Earthquakes occur along the fault lines, causing the tectonic plates to shift.
Before an eruption occurs molten rocks rise up into chambers near the surface, causing the ground surface to bulge slightly.This causes Mini-Earthquakes near the volcano. Sometimes volcanoes can cause earthquakes, but most of the time earthquakes are not cause by volcanoes..
The Ring of Fire is also known as the Pacific Ring of Fire. The yellow line is the location of the Ring of Fire. The Ring of Fire is bascically where the Earth's tectonic plates have spread apart and cracked, allowing warm lava to rise and causing many earthquakes and volcanoes. Also, the plates here often shift and that is why there are often tsunamis. Tsunamis are caused underwater by onshore earthquakes that are very… Read More
earthquakes occur because plates move and they over lap causing an earthquake.
The tectonic plates shift causing them to collide and shake the ground.
When two plates slide apart from each other, it is known as divergent boundaries. As the continent splits, a ridge forms at the spreading center, stretches the ocean basin, causing it to expand and the plate area increases causing many small volcanoes or light earthquakes.
Most earthquakes occur near tectonic plates because as the plates shift, they move the ground causing an earthquake to occur. Most earthquakes happen there but you must keep in mind that the tectonic plates only move 4-6 centimeters every years.
Tectonic creep is the almost constant movement of certain fault blocks that allows strain energy to be released without causing major earthquakes.
The shifting in tectonic plates causing pressure making said quakes
'it happens because of human being's.it is caused by global warming' is an ever more popular explanation. but if your looking for a scientificly proven answer then read on. Earthquakes and volcanoes are caused by the build up of pressure in the earths core, to stop its self from gradually expanding till it bursts over mllions of years it has to release the pressure, one way it does this is through volcanoes where the gases… Read More
The earths plates rub together causing vibrations in the earth. Making Earthquakes If these plates are near volcanoes the friction will melt the magma causing a volcanic eruption.
Earthquakes occur when two plates that were pushing against each other slip apart and all the pressure gets released causing the earthquake. And idk about volcanoes
Earthquakes happen when tectonic plates hit into each other. Causing an earthquake. ~DDG~
Indonesia is located near the borders of the Eurasian and Indo-Australian Tectonic Plate zones. Subduction will happen from the plates rubbing together causing earthquakes in Indonesia
Tectonic activity is concentrated at plate margins, because that is where the collision (destructive plate boundaries) or division (constructive plate margins) occurs. This is the place where the two plates hit each other or move apart, causing things like earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes and fold mountains. The impact, or the force, of the plates is biggest at the plate boundaries.
because the tectonic plates move in a certain way causing them to do that.
Volcanoes happen at 2 out of 4 plate boundaries: Constructive plate boundaries and destructive plate boundaries. In a constructive plate boundary, the plates move apart, causing earthquakes, and letting magma pass through, creating volcanoes. In a destructive plate boundary, the plates push together. This creates a subduction zone. The rock jolts and grinds its way down causing earthquakes and volcanoes.
Earthquake occur because tectonic plates are grinding against each other, causing movement along faults which in turn causes earthquakes. Volcanic activity occurs at subduction zones because the subducting plate introduces water into the mantle, which allows mantle rock to melt. Volcanoes form at divergent boundaries because the thinned crust reduces pressure on the upper mantle, allowing rock to melt.
the tectonic plates move around slightly until they clash causing strong vibrations or an earthquake
they are transmitted when the tectonic plates crash into each other, causing vibrations to occur and then transmitting it through the earth.
Movements of tectonic plates against each other usually causing a jarring motion which causes an earthquake.
The tectonic plates move under the earth causing an eruption. This is the same basis for both under water and above water volcanoes. These volcanoes are officially called submarine volcanoes. They account for 75% of all magma produced by volcanoes. AND BOOOOOM
Earthquakes dont move the friction in tectonical plates makes the ground vibrate (shake) They move by the shifting and movement of the tectonic plates that are moving in the first place that is causing the earthquake.
tectonic pates. the earth is covered in self of rock(like the skin of an apple) and when they move they can spread apart or crash into each other causing mountains, volcanoes, etc...
Los Angeles has lots of earthquakes because it is located near a transform boundary. Transform boundaries form when one tectonic plate grinds past another plate causing earthquakes along the boundary.
Many earthquakes can travel through water until it hits land causing a on shore earthquake.
Yes ,one day it will break away from California because of the tectonic plates causing earthquakes
Earthquakes happen when the pressure from two tectonic plates pushing against each other at their boundaries is too much, and the plates 'slip', causing violent vibrations in the earth.
Earthquakes occur due to the movement of the Earth's tectonic plates. The Earth's surface is comprised of a series of large plates, on top of which are the continents of the planet. Underneath the tectonic plates is a layer comprised of magma. The tectonic plates are able to move very slowly, and when two plates collide, the momentum of the plates is released as energy, causing enormous vibrations (earthquakes). So, in answer to this question… Read More
Earthquakes involve two plates causing a snap while moving under or above one another, while volcanoes are simply from magma from deep underground gaining enough pressure to push out from a mountainous feature to release onto the surface.
the pressure builds up from tectonic plates moving past each other causing gaps and then volcanoes are produced. hope it helps.
Volcanoes are caused from eruptions from the mantle underneath the surface of the earth. Mountains are caused by the shift of tectonic plates amongst one another, causing n upward crease in the earth's crust.
Volcanoes are sometimes formed by earthquakes. Even though they are different things, Volcanoes are mostly formed on Colliding boundaries. The oceanic plate subducts causing CO2 to make Magma rise from the mantle.
Most earthquakes happen in the Pacific Ocean's 'ring of fire'. This is where several tectonic plates rub up against each other thus causing the quakes.
Japan is located on the "ring of fire" which is a ring of volcanoes that fall on the shores around the pacific ocean. Because of all the seismic activity (underground movement) that volcanoes can create, Japan can receive many earthquakes that are started nearby, causing much damage.
Volcanoes are more dangerous due to the volcanic ash that can travel to the atmosphere and cause strange weather patterns and can even kill crops causing some people to starve
The land part of the earth is on tectonic plates. Due to pressure, the plates collide or brush with each other causing vibrations which are called earthquakes.
