    • Tectonics Key Words Revision Quiz
    • Mountains formed by two tectonic plates colliding at a compressional margin. Fold epicentre Crust Shield Focus Tensional Richter Composite Extinct Compressional Plate boundary Kobe Conservative/Passive Montserrat Convection Currents Dormant Continental Active Subduction Oceanic
    • The point on the earth’s surface at the centre of an earthquake it is directly above the focus Fold epicentre Crust Shield Focus Tensional Richter Composite Extinct Compressional Plate boundary Kobe Conservative/Passive Montserrat Convection Currents Dormant Continental Active Subduction Oceanic
    • Huge slabs of the earth’s crust which make up the earth’s surface. Fold epicentre Crust Shield Focus Tensional Richter Composite Extinct Compressional Plate boundary Kobe Conservative/Passive Montserrat Convection Currents Dormant Continental Active Subduction Oceanic
    • A volcano that has a wide base, gently sloping sides and is made from basic lava. Fold epicentre Crust Shield Focus Tensional Richter Composite Extinct Compressional Plate boundary Kobe Conservative/Passive Montserrat Convection Currents Dormant Continental Active Subduction Oceanic
    • The point within the earth’s crust where an earthquake starts. Fold epicentre Crust Shield Focus Tensional Richter Composite Extinct Compressional Plate boundary Kobe Conservative/Passive Montserrat Convection Currents Dormant Continental Active Subduction Oceanic
    • A boundary where plates are moving away from each other Fold epicentre Crust Shield Focus Tensional Richter Composite Extinct Compressional Plate boundary Kobe Conservative/Passive Montserrat Convection Currents Dormant Continental Active Subduction Oceanic
    • A scale used to measure the magnitude of an earthquake. Fold epicentre Crust Shield Focus Tensional Richter Composite Extinct Compressional Plate boundary Kobe Conservative/Passive Montserrat Convection Currents Dormant Continental Active Subduction Oceanic
    • A volcano that has a narrow base, steep sloping sides and is made from layers of ash and lava. Fold epicentre Crust Shield Focus Tensional Richter Composite Extinct Compressional Plate boundary Kobe Conservative/Passive Montserrat Convection Currents Dormant Continental Active Subduction Oceanic
    • A volcano which will never erupt again Fold epicentre Crust Shield Focus Tensional Richter Composite Extinct Compressional Plate boundary Kobe Conservative/Passive Montserrat Convection Currents Dormant Continental Active Subduction Oceanic
    • A boundary where plates are moving towards each other. Fold epicentre Crust Shield Focus Tensional Richter Composite Extinct Compressional Plate boundary Kobe Conservative/Passive Montserrat Convection Currents Dormant Continental Active Subduction Oceanic
    • Where two plates meet Fold epicentre Crust Shield Focus Tensional Richter Composite Extinct Compressional Plate boundary Kobe Conservative/Passive Montserrat Convection Currents Dormant Continental Active Subduction Oceanic
