Which rocks are affected by chemical weathering

The effect of chemical weathering via acidic rainfall generally affects but is not limited to those rocks containing calcium or calcium carbonate, such as limestone and marble.

Do s-waves travel faster than p-waves

no p waves travel faster than s waves

What causes the erosion of sand dunes

Wind, mostly. Also the sea, if the dunes are near the sea.

Shearing seismic waves that move rocks and other matter in a direction perpendicular to the waves are traveling

Primary waves (p waves)

What is a break in a rock mass along which movement occurs

A Fault

What is the amount of energy released by an earthquake called

This is known as the magnitude of the earthquake.

Compare and contrast P waves and S waves

p waves travel through solids and s waves travel through liquids

Where a major earthquake has happened in the past but not in a while is called a seismic

Seismic gap.

An example of a Mitigation activity is

Building earthquake-resistant structures n earthquake zones.

Which scale measures the magnitude of an earthquake

The Moment Magnitude scale and the Richter magnitude scale are used to measure the magnitude (energy released) during an earthquake.

What are the measuring tools in cooking

Measuring cups are likely the most common. Measuring spoons are also widely used. A kitchen scale is also a measuring tool used in cooking.

How do dunes migrate in the direction of the wind

In regards to "sand dunes" they migrate in the direction of the wind as sand particles being individually light can travel on the wind in forms of "sand storms" and therefore migrate overtime, create new dunes or reshape existing dune structures by either adding or withdrawing sand from the wind directions movement.

What do geologists use seismic waves for

Geologist use seismic waves to lear about Earths Interior<3'

What is the relationship between intensity and magnitude of an and earthquake

the relationship between earthquakes magnitude is the size or amount of energy an earthquake produces and has no connection to hour often earthquakes occur.

What is an earthquakes magnitude a measure of

The magnitude of an earthquake is a measurement of the amount of energy released.

How the gravitational force between earth and the moon would change if the distance if the distance between them increased

If the distance between the Moon and the Earth would increase then the gravitational force between them would be stronger. If they would be separated then the gravitational force is weaker.

How does under water earthquake affect the ocean water

It causes the ground at the ocean floor to shift, resulting in the displacement of water. The beginnings of a potential tsunami!

Is it true or false that the closer an earthquake the greater the time between the arrival of P waves and the arrival of S waves

true

What plate boundary causes seismic waves

Destructive plate boundary.

What is windblown silt that blankets a landscape

loess
