Explain how fault generate earthquakes

Answers

Earthquakes and Faults   Earthquakes.pptx

■    Earthquakes, Faults, Uplift

1. What are they?

a) Fault:   a break or fracture in the earth’s crust

b) Earthquakes:  shaking or trembling of the earth caused by movement along a

fault

c) Uplift:  upward movement of Earth’s crust

■ Faults

1. Faults are blocks of earth’s crust that meet together.  Scientists identify four types

of faults characterized by the position of the fault plane, the break in the rock, and

the movement of the two rock blocks.  Fault lines are under enormous pressure

from the two pieces of the earth’s crust pushing together.  The faults will eventually

give way to the pressure causing earthquakes and creating mountain ranges.

2. Types of faults:

a) Strike/slip

b) Normal

■ Timpanogos Cave Faults

1. A fault is very important to the cave.  Through the fault line the water can flow

through the crack and form beautiful cave formations.

■ Earthquakes

1. Earthquakes occur when rock shifts or slips along fault lines   Earthquakes generate

waves that travel through the earth’s surface.    These waves are what is felt and

cause damage around the epicenter of the earthquake.

2. Measuring earthquakes is a vital part to letting us know how big the earthquake

was and what activity might be going on in the earth’s surface.

3. Earthquakes are measured by seismographs.  A seismograph is an instrument that

measures the size and strength of the seismic waves that are released during an

earthquake.

■ Uplift

1. Uplift occurs throughout mountain regions as the crust of the earth thrusts

upwards.  Uplift typically occurs as a result of an earthquake and mountain building.  

Many different examples of uplift can be seen at Timpanogos National Monument

and throughout Utah.

by tectonic plates moving or bumping to other tectonic plate

these can affect because we can die from a collapsing building or falling rocks

Explanation:

answer:

The friction across the surface of the fault holds the rocks together so they do not slip immediately when pushed sideways. Eventually enough stress builds up and the rocks slip suddenly, releasing energy in waves that travel through the rock to cause the shaking that we feel during an earthquake.#CarryOnLearning

answer:

The forces that move the plates create stresses within the Earth's crust, and can cause the crust to suddenly fracture. The area of contact between the two fractured crustal masses is called a fault. Earthquakes result from sudden movements along faults, creating a release of energy.

answer:

Earthquakes occur when rock shifts or slips along fault lines Earthquakes generate waves that travel through the earth's surface. These waves are what is felt and cause damage around the epicenter of the earthquake.
