Transcript

  • 1. L Class Vocabulary Review
  • 2. Ash Fall Pyroclastic Flow Lava Flows
  • 3. Across 4. tiny particles of pulverized volcanic rock and glass 5. a seismic wave that causes particles in the ground to move up and down in a rolling motion; it is the most damaging 7. Volcanoes that are not associated with plate boundaries 9. fossilized carbon outline of an organism or part of an organism 10. the location on Earth’s surface directly above the earthquake’s focus 13. a liquid’s resistance to flow 15. the preserved remains or evidence of ancient living things 16. a break in Earth’s lithosphere where one block of rock moves toward, away from, or past another 17. the impression in a rock left by an ancient organism 19. the idea that conditions and organisms on Earth change in quick, violent events 21. a principle that states that geologic processes that occur today are similar to those that have occurred in the past 22. Molten rock that erupts onto Earth’s surface 23. the principle that in undisturbed rock layers, the oldest rocks are on the bottom. 25. a graphical illustration of seismic waves 26. energy that travels as vibrations on and in Earth 27. matching rocks and fossils from separate locations. 30. a fossil copy of an organism made when a mold of the organism is filled with sediment of mineral deposits 31. Fossil Fossils that represent species that existed on Earth for a short length of time, were abundant, and inhabited many locations. 32. These waves originate where rocks first move along the fault, at a location inside Earth Down 1. scientists who study fossils 2. a vent in Earth’s crust through which melted – or molten – rock flows 3. piece of an older rock that becomes part of a new rock. 6. a surface where rock has eroded away, producing a break, or gap, in the rock record. 8. a volcano common along divergent plate boundaries and ocean hot spots, these volcanoes are large with gentle slopes of basaltic lavas 11. the vibrations in the ground that result from movement along breaks in Earth’s lithosphere 12. a seismic wave that causes particles to move up and down at right angles relative to the direction the wave travels 14. an instrument that measures and records ground motion and can be used to determine the distance seismic waves travel 17. Molten rock below Earth’s crust 18. scientists that study earthquakes 19. a volcano with large, steep sides that result from explosive eruptions of andesitic and rhyolitic lava and ash along convergent plate boundaries 20. a seismic wave that causes particles in the ground to move in a push-pull motion similar to a coiled spring; it is the fastest wave 24. the preserved evidence of the activity of an organism 28. the age of rocks and geologic features compared with other rocks and features nearby. 29. small, steep-sided volcanoes that erupt gas-rich, basaltic lava
