Hello there, my name is Alfred Wegener. My theory of the continental drift and the super continent pangea are now well known
Alfred Wegener is the person who came up with the theory of contintental drift which means that there was one a "super continent" called Pangea which was broken up into pieces that created continents.
A strike slip fault is a fault in which there is a vertical fracture where the vertical blocks move horizontally
Tension occurs when the stress streches a rock in two different directions
Convergent plates are a type of plate movement. A subduction is when the more dense plate goes below the less dense plate.
A divergent plate boundary is when the plates move apart. This causes separations in the ocean floor. The convection currents move the magma and cause separation in the oceans surface.
A earthquake is a movement in plate tectonics. The epicenter is the main focus point of an earthquake. A seismograph is the way to measure the power of the earthquake. Their are different types of waves in an earthquake, the p wave arrives first and the s wave is second. Triangulation is a way of determining the location.
A volcano is a mountain with magma shooting upward towards the earths surface. The ring of fire is a ring of volcanoes that actively could go off. An explosive eruption includes lava shooting out of the top while a non explosive consists of a stream of lava rather than an explosion. The three types of water falls are: cinder, shield, and composite.
