Approximately 275 that are large enough to be felt by humans. For more information, see below:
According to the US Geological Survey there are approximately 1,000,000 earthquakes around the world every year (although the vast majority of these are so small they can only be detected by sensitive scientific equipment).
Of these 1,000,000, approximately 1/10 are large enough to be felt by humans. This means that on any given day there will be an average of 2750 earthquakes around the world of which 275 are large enough to be felt by humans.
Perhaps even more surprisingly, on average there are around 100 earthquakes a year that are large enough to cause damage (however they often don't because they occur away from inhabited areas). This means there is a little under a 1 in 3 chance of there being a "large" earthquake somewhere in the world on any given day of the year.
Small tremors before a major earthquake are referred to as foreshocks. They occur before 70 percent of large seismic events, and to a lesser extent before smaller earthquakes.
The low bedrock ridges and peaks of a highly eroded basin and range desert landscape are called insellbergs. Deposits of windblown salt are called loess.
horns, cirques, Ushaped valleys, and glacial lakes.
Glacial erratics if your doing it for
Wind forms sand dunes by picking up dry sediments and accumulating them over time to create over time.
no p waves travel faster than s waves
Primary waves (p waves)
This is known as the magnitude of the earthquake.
Yes, it is like a shrinking conveyor belt. If the conveyor belt stops moving, then it is no longer classified a glacier; it is then an ice field.
The Moment Magnitude scale and the Richter magnitude scale are used to measure the magnitude (energy released) during an earthquake.
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.
The 3 main types of glacial erosion are plucking, abrasion and freeze thaw.
The magnitude of an earthquake is a measurement of the amount of energy released.
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.
there is little chemical weathering to round the landscapes
