  10. 10. THE SECOND MOST IMPORTANT REASON FOREARTHQUAKES TECTONIC PLATES
  11. 11. A MATTER OF DEPTH
  12. 12. FAULTS FAULTS ARE ONE OF THE STRUCTURAL FEATURES OF ROCKS WHILE ROCKS AT OR NEAR THE SURFACE OF THE EARTH ARE COOL & BRITTLE, ROCKS BELOW THE SURFACE OF THE EARTH ARE HOT AND TEND TO MOVE
  13. 13. FAULTS A LOT OF EXTERNAL FORCES ACT UPON THE ROCKS AND CAUSE STRESS ON THEM DUE TO THIS STRESSES, ROCKS EITHER UNDERGO DUCTILE DEFORMATION OR BRITTLE DEFORMATION IF THEY UNDERGO DUCTILE DEFORMATION, ROCKS DEVELOP FOLDS. IF THEY UNDERGO BRITTLE DEFORMATION, THEY DEVELOP FAULTS.
  14. 14. FAULTS FAULT IS DEFINED AS A SPLIT OR CRACK OR FRACRTURE IN THE ROCK PRESENT IN EARTH’S CRUST CHARACTERISED BY RELATIVE DISPLACEMENT OF ONE SIDE OVER THE OTHER.

  20. 20. TYPES OF FAULTS FAULTS ARE CLASSIFIED INTO THREE TYPES NAMELY DIP SLIP FAULTS (VERTICAL MOTION) STRIKE SLIP FAULTS (HORIZONTAL MOTION) OBLIQUE SLIP FAULTS (OBLIQUE MOTION)

  32. 32. FAULTS & EARTHQUAKES
  33. 33. ELASTIC REBOUND THEORY
  34. 34. ELASTIC REBOUND THEORY
  35. 35. ELASTIC REBOUND THEORY
  36. 36. ELASTIC REBOUND THEORY The elastic rebound theory is an explanation for how energy is spread during earthquakes. As plates on opposite sides of a fault are subjected to force and shift, they accumulate energy and slowly deform until their internal strength is exceeded. At that time, a sudden movement occurs along the fault, releasing the accumulated energy, and the rocks snap back to their original undeformed shape.
