  • Earth Shakes, Rattles, and Rolls Plate Tectonics Volcanoes Earthquakes
  • What is the relationship between the earth’s plates, volcanoes, and earthquakes?
  • http://www. extremescience .com/ PlateTectonicsmap . htm Plates
  • Earthquakes
  • http://hsv.com/scitech/earthsci/quake.htm Volcanoes
  • Let’s look at those maps again.
  • Plates Earthquakes Volcanoes
  • Earthquakes and Volcanoes are found where plates meet.
  • Evidence Wegener used to support theory of continental drift:
    • Continents fit like a puzzle
    • Fossil evidence
    • Rocks were similar in Africa and South America
    • Evidence Antarctica once had a tropical climate
  • How did geologists explain how the earth’s plates moved? Mid-Atlantic Ridge allows mantle to seep to surface through cracks and pushes plates of the earth apart. Continental Drift
  • Seafloor spreading animation To see how geologists believe the plates moved go to the site below . Notice the Atlantic Ocean seafloor spreading.
  • Layers of the Earth
    • Crust
    • Mantle
    • Outer core
    • Inner core
  • Types of Mountains
    • Folded
    • Fault-block
    • Volcanic
    • Unwarped
  • http://www.cssd11.k12.co.us/dohnts/images/earth/fldmtn.jpg FOLDED MOUNTAINS
  • FOLDED MOUNTAINS
    • Appalachian Mountains in the eastern United States, and the Swiss Alps in Switzerland
    • form when two plates collide head on, and their edges crumble
    • consist mainly of sedimentary rocks, like limestone and shale
  • FAULT-BLOCK MOUNTAINS
  • FAULT-BLOCK MOUNTAINS
    • Consist of huge blocks of the earth's crust that have been tilted or pushed up along a fracture line called a fault
    • Sierra in California, Arizona is an example.
    • Created when a plate hits a fault and tips upside down, creating erosion and debris, which is at the base of the mountain.
  • VOLCANIC MOUNTAIN NAMIBIA IN AFRICA
  • Volcanic mountains
    • Formed when molten rock, or magma deep within the earth, erupts, and piles upon the surface
    • Made of basalt and rhyolite.
    • Takes place where two of the earth's tectonic plates collide.
  • UNWARPED MOUNTAINS
    • Black Hills in South Dakota
    • form when tectonic forces lift the earth's crust into a broad bulge or dome raising it above its surroundings
    • Erosion causes peaks and valleys to form.
  •  
  • Convection currents in action! At left, two animal cookies represent two of the Earth's tectonic plates. At right, the two plates have moved apart, much like what happens at a divergent margin. The chocolate pudding represents the Earth's mantle. The heat source beneath the pot created convection cells in the chocolate pudding. Think of the cookie on the left as South America, and the cookie on the right as Africa. Over time they have moved apart. You'll see this again. http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://visearth.ucsd.edu:16080/VisE_teach/Kimball/untitled18.jpg&imgrefurl=http://visearth.ucsd.edu:16080/VisE_teach/Kimball/Kimball2.html&h=200&w=308&sz=35&tbnid=sEa1xg46QVMJ:&tbnh=72&tbnw=110&start=9&prev=/images%3Fq%3DCONVECTION%2BCURRENTS%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D%26sa%3DN
  • Convection currents in the Earth's mantle are what drive plate motions. Convection currents are driven by the simple fact that hot things (such as gases and liquids) rise while cool things fall.
  • Convection currents in the magma move the earth’s crust.
  • http://www.harcourtschool.com/glossary/science/define/gr4/epicenter4c.html epicenter The point on the surface of Earth that is right above the focus of an earthquake                                                  
  • http://uc.wisc.edu/news/features/quake/pwaves.html
  • http://www.pbs.org/wnet/ savageearth /animations/earthquakes/ Go to this site to see an animation of the path of p waves and s waves
  • Earthquakes How do we measure the intensity of an earthquake?
  • Seismograph measures Magnitude or the strength of an earthquake
  • Seismograph records energy waves of the earth
    • V.
    • People feel movement.
    • Doors open
    • Pictures fall off wall.
    • VII.
    • Some buildings lose bricks.
    • Difficulty driving.
    IX. Considerable damage to homes. Cracks in earth.
    • XII.
    • Almost everything is destroyed.
    • The ground moves in waves or ripples.
    •  
    Mercalli Scale I.People do not feel anything .
  • Richter Scale
    • Earthquake Magnitudes Effects 
    • Less than 3.5 Generally not felt 
    • 3.5-5.4 Rarely causes damage.
    • Under 6.0 Slight damage to well-designed buildings.  
    • 6.1-6.9 Destructive to about 100 kilometers across
    •  
    • 7.0-7.9 Major earthquake. Serious damage over larger areas. 
    • 8 or greater Great earthquake.
  • Each number is 10X stronger than the previous number . How much stronger is the 3 than the 1? 100 Times How much stronger is the 8 than the 1? 10,000,000 Write the number in scientific notation. 10 6
  • Why is the Richter Scale more accurate than the Mercalli Scale?
    • The Richter Scale is objective and based on mathematical measurements .
    • The Mercalli scale is subjective and based on people’s perception and experience .
    • On Mercalli scale if the area is unihabited there is no way to measure the magnitude of the earthquake.
  • Richter Magnitude Number of Earthquakes per year 1.0 to 3.9 900,000 + 4.0-4.9 6200 5.0-5.9 800 6.0-6.9 226 7.0-7.9 18 8.0-8.9 Less than 2
