What type of earthquake is dangerous tectonic or volcanic?
different types of earthquakes are tectonic, volcanic, and collapse earthquakes.
i think it was tectonic or collapse
It was a conservative earthquake caused by tectonic plates under ground, that rub together to make friction.
Tectonic plates formed the earthquake in 1960 due to a collision with one another.
It is called tectonic stress.
The Kashmir Earthquake was affected by the destructive tectonic plate boundaries. Eurasian and Indian plate hitting each other. Thats what caused the Himalayas. Once, they hit an earthquake occurs.
The tectonic plates that collide vertical to one opposit end of the other so that the can crash making an earthquake this is done to global warming but really it is earthquake causing global warming
Of course they are! the most dangerous TYPE of avalanche is the slab avalanche and happens most of the time. And only if you in one. ;) But its probably not as dangerous as an earthquake.
How does the type of lava that forms in a tectonic setting determine the type of eruption that takes place and the type of volcanic mountain that forms in that forms in that setting?
The tectonic setting determines the source of the magma and therefore the chemistry of the melt. This in turn determines its viscosity and gas content. Viscosity and gas content determine the type of eruption and therefore the shape of volcano that is made.
Its epicenter was located on the convergent boundary between the Pacific and Cocos tectonic plates.
Seismic waves can be used to determine the location of an earthquake focus. These waves are triggered by tectonic plates.
Haiti was a conservative (AKA transforming) earthquake, were tow tectonic plates move past each other causing friction, on of them gives rapid shaking is caused making an earth quake. 7.0
A mountain could be a volcano and a volcano can be a mountain. A volcanic mountain is only one type of mountain. Mt. St. Helens in the United States is a volcanic mountain. The Hawaiian Islands are a string of volcanic mountains. And the world's largest mountain range is the mid-ocean ridge, created by diverging tectonic plates and volcanism.
Well technically any earthquake would have to be able to go through solids or liquids. An earthquake works in such a way that tectonic plates from the ground rub against each other and stick. When the tension is released then motion waves are sent out over a large area.
Which type of earthquake is the result of the release of pressure from when two plates slide past each other in opposing directions?
When two plates slide past each other in opposing directions, an interplate earthquake occurs. It occurs at the boundary between two tectonic plates.
Any type of plate boundary can cause an earthquake. That said, areas along convergent, divergent, and transform tectonic plate boundaries are the most likely places for earthquakes to occur.
Mainly there are four types of earthquakes: Tectonic: The most common. Rocks in the crust break due to stress placed upon them by tectonic motion. Shallow quakes happen at transform boundaries, deep focus at subduction zones. Volcanic: Kind of obviously occur in conjunction with volcanic activity, magma forcing its way into an area that doesn't have enough room to hold it, thus cracking and stressing and breaking the rock. Collapse: Small earthquakes caused by the… Read More
Earthquakes typically occur on a any fault because the most common earthquake is the tectonic earthquake and it occurs on all the faults, though usually has the most effect on strike-slip faults (like the San Andreas fault).
Disaster Behavior - This type of behavior is elicited in times of disaster and calamities, such as earthquake, volcanic eruptions, typhoons or hurricanes, and epidemics. it combines panic, crowd and mass bahavior.
Earthquakes are caused by the movement of the Earth's tectonic plates (sections of the earth's crust) against one another. New York does not lie near enough to a fault line (the point where tectonic plates meet) to be affected by these movements. For more information on tectonic plate, fault lines, and how earthquakes work, type, "earthquake" into Wikipedia.
No There are two main causes of earthquakes. Firstly, they can be linked to explosive volcanic eruptions; they are in fact very common in areas of volcanic activity where they either proceed or accompany eruptions. Secondly, they can be triggered by Tectonic activity associated with plate margins and faults. The majority of earthquakes world wide are of this type.
The type of tectonics where volcanoes occur are continental rift volcanism, hot spot, and continental volcanic arc. The other tectonics are subduction zones and rift valleys on a continental crust.
A volcanic hot spot forms from upwelling magma usually due to the subduction of a tectonic plate. As plates move over this area new volcanoes are formed. +++ A hot spot alone is the top of a convection plume in the Mantle, not above subduction. This type of hot spot can lead to continental rifting.
there is a possibility, it depends on how strong the quake is, tsunamis do not occur on a type 2-3 quakes, tsunamis occur during the shift of the tectonic plates under the ground. quakes with intensity of 2-3 often develop cyclones or whirlpools. but immediately evacuate the area if an earthquake is occurring.
many of Caribbean islands was formed by what type of tectonic activity
the type of this is that of the earthquake were destroying any things and millons of people in this country>
Its when the earths tectonic plates move into each over causing an earth quake I think that's right correct me if im wrong Found this on a web site this may help: An Earthquake is a sudden tremor or movement of the earth's crust, which originates naturally at or below the surface. The word natural is important here, since it excludes shock waves caused by French nuclear tests, man made explosions and landslides caused by… Read More
nutrients in ocean are recycled to the surface of the continent relieves tension between tectonic plates depending on type of earthquake, it brings up old land for scientists to study. more earthquakes of lesser magnitude helps prevent a large earthquake in the same location. helps form oxygen and carbon dioxide.
Tectonic plates that are convergent are "crashing into" each other at this collision boundary, and a subduction zone there is possible. One of the plates will "dive under" the other one. This creates uplift, "hot spots" or volcanic "risers" and instability along the boundary. The west coast of the United States is a good example. A link is provided below.
Faults DO NOT produce earthquakes, faults are produced by earthquakes. This means that earthquake loci are centered on and along faults. The energy released by an earthquake is the strain energy built up as a result of plate tectonic forces. The damage relates to the amount of strain built up and the greatest strains arise in environments where the forces are horizontally compressive, resulting in thrust faults.
In New Zealand there is a transform boundary, where two tectonic plates slide past each other in opposite directions. The type of fault produced by this boundary is called a strike-slip fault.
It was a 9.0 level earthquake
there are ways earthquakes can be predicted e.g the love quake,quakes like that goes forwards and backwards and most of the time this type of earthquake is quite "dangerous"
An 8.9 Earthquake.
The type were the earth moves and shacks the ground.
Japan is composed of a string of volcanic islands in the Pacific Ocean. Much of the country is mountainous and forested. Climate ranges over several zones from temperate to quite warm. It is threatened by earthquakes due to its location near neighboring tectonic plates.
Aluminum silicates with calcium, sodium, magnesium and many cations loosely bonded to the crystalline structure. some contain carbon from deceased life forms. It is the product of volcanic activity and tectonic plate activity with weathering and hydrolysis. Clays are ancient.
volcanic - it is made form volcanic ash that has solidified.
Volcanic rocks are extrusive igneous rocks.
How does the type of lava that forms in a tectonic setting determine the type of eruption that takes place and the type of volcanic mountain that forms in that setting?
If the type of lava is more of a chunky kind and slow-moving kind, then when it flows down the volcano and hardens, it gets bigger and bigger by layers of lava hardening and hardening. This is called a shield volcano. If when the lava comes down already hardened, it will only pile so high. Then the rocks just start tumbling off the sides. This is called a cone volcano. If there is a lot… Read More
The Earths tectonic plates move crating waves type in tectonic plates in google
It was a transform or strike slip boundary earthquake.
Plinian is the worst type of volcanic eruption. It launches lava, ash and other materials into the air.
a volcanic island arc is a convergent boundary
The most violent type of volcanic eruption is were the volcano lies on a Destructive Subduction Zone. Here the magma is viscous, thick and gloopy and there are high concentrates of Silica and Carbon Dioxide meaning a pyroclastic flow will occur and it will be very dangerous.
Assessment of the risks cannot be made categorically. The danger presented by a volcano depends on the size and type of eruptions it produces and how the eruptions may interact with terrain and climate. Large, explosive eruptions tend to be the most dangerous, especially where a wet climate may increase the risk of mudflows. Similarly, the danger from an earthquake depends on the size and depth of the earthquake, the type of material at the… Read More
There is no plateboundary that is an earthquake, but the type of boundary that causes earthquakes is a transform boundary.
A convergent plate boundary is the area of collision between two tectonic plates.
They can be. Most mountain ranges form when the land is thrust upward by tectonic activity, so the type of rock present depends on what rock is present to begin with. The cores of mountain ranges, though, are often made of granite and gneiss. Volcanic mountains are not made of limestone.
