At divergent plate boundaries in the ocean magma rises and melts because of what

Because of a decrease in pressure.

How do you keep your house earthquake safe

build a safe house

A tsunami can occur when there is vertical movement at a fault under

The ocean floor.

How did opponents of continental drift account for the existence of similar fossils on widely separated continents

migration across land bridges

What process occurs when an earthquake's shaking turns loose soil into mud

the answer is liquefaction

What can a travel time graph be used to find

A travel time graph can be used to find the distance from the epicenter of an earthquake.

How did industrialization spread

Industrialization spread by people making more goods and others continued to copy and do the same.

How much of an increase in wave amplitude is seen from an earthquake measuring 5.4 on the Richter scale compared to one measuring 4.4

Ten times

V-cube 7 or megaminx

megaminx

How many earthquakes have occurred in Hawaii

1,526,578

Folding is usually the result of what type of stress

compressional forces

Over time sand dunes tend to migrate

in the same direction as that the wind blows

Is crater lake the deepest lake in Oregon or is it the second deepest lake in Oregon

Crater Lake is the deepest lake in Oregon.

Which is a landscape feature created by glacial deposits

outwash plain

Which is a geographic example of a transform fault boundary

A geographical example of a transform fault boundary is the San Andreas fault. Another example of a fall boundary is the Northridge fault.

What did the pattern of earthquakes in the wadati-benioff seafloor zones show scientists

Slabs of ocean floor return to the mantle in subduction zones

Which is not a factor in calculating the moment magnitude of an earthquake

magnitude of past earthquakes in the area

What is the difference of the P waves and S waves used to locate an earthquake's epicenter

P waves, also called primary waves, are the first waves to be registered on a seismograph. The S waves, or secondary waves, are the second and slower wave to register on the seismograph. When locating an earthquakes epicenter seismologists take the first reading of the P wave, and then take the reading from the S wave. At the station of where the earthquake was recorded, seismologists draw a large circle from where the earthquakes epicenter could be. TO exactly located the earthquakes epicenter there needs to be at least 3 dfferent staions where the earthquake hit to determine its epicenter using the S and P time interval. 

Which step is part of the formation of a batholith

Many plutons clump together as they rise through the crust.

Why was Alfred wegeners idea that tidal forces might cause continental drift refuted as impossible

It would stop earth's rotation.

Showed that the tidal forces needed to move continents would stop earths rotation.

When p wave bend while traveling through earth's core what happen when arrive at the shadow zone

serveral minutes later than expected

When new rock is added to an oceanic ridge the magnetized strips on either side of the ridge are evidence of sea-floor spreading. This is because the rocks on the two sides of the ridge

are equal in width and polarity

What is magma viscosity directly related to

silica content

What does running water while occurring infrequently in deserts do

does most of the erosional work.

What was the reason wegeners continental drift hypothesis was rejected

His evidence was incorrect.

Which does not affect the amount of destruction caused by earthquakes vibrations

the weather during the day of the earthquake

The trace that records an earthquake from seismic instruments is called a

magnitude

Is this statement true or false P waves and S waves are two kinds of seismic waves.

True

What does most magma forms from

Magma is liquid rock from volcanoes.

How do ancient glacial deposits in Africa India Australia and South America support the idea of continental drift
