When the word shearing is used to refer to earthquakes, it means to break or shear off of something. This word is used because when an earthquake happens, it breaks the ground up.
Shearing is something that happens when two plates from transform boundaries slide past each other. This kind of stress is called shearing. so when two plates are rubbing up against each other basically. go to this website to get another definition and a picture.http://earthquake.usgs.gov/learn/glossary/?term=shear%20stress
There are three types of stress tension, compression, and shearing they all cause earthquakes.
Tension, Compression, and Shearing they all create earthquakes
Use a dictionary
The simplest definition for "Sysmology" is: the study of earthquakes.
It states that shearing force per unit area is proportional to negative of velocity gradient.
A small earthquake
It depends. Are you talking about the god? Yes, Neptune the god controls earthquakes but if the planet has them is unknown so far.
shearing mean change in shape
talking animals is the basal definition for a fable.
Talking to God.
It depends which London you are talking about. London, England, is not experiencing any earthquakes, as England cannot actually have earthquakes.
if you are talking about deformation, it does cause earthquakes but they are very small
shearing stress to shearing strain
Rebecca Shearing was born in 1992.
The Shearing Touch was created in 1960.
Peter Shearing was born in 1938.
Look it The shearing action/force which takes place in y-direction(transverse dirn.)is known as transverse shear...........
A hypothesis that stated that sections of active faults that have had relatively few earthquakes are likely to be the sites of strong earthquakes in the future.
Shearing of rocks is when rocks are pushed in opposite directions.
shearing is when rocks pushes in opposite directions
it is earthquakes, tsunami, volcanoes, tornado, anything of nature
They are measured on the Richter Scale, if you are talking about the magnitude
it is about buisness talking about... :)
Transform boundry, or what's known as shearing. It causes the plates to move past each other causing earthquakes in any areas.
