Science 4

  1. 1. Strike-Slip Boundary
  2. 2. Types of Boundaries <ul><li>Convergent Boundaries – Occurs when two plates of the earths crusts are moving toward each other </li></ul><ul><li>Divergent Boundaries – Occurs when two plates are moving away from each other </li></ul><ul><li>Strike Slip Boundaries – Occurs when two plates collide at an angle </li></ul>
  3. 3. What is a strike-slip boundary? <ul><li>A strike-slip boundary is when a piece of land goes left and the other goes right or the opposite way </li></ul>
  4. 4. Types of faults <ul><li>Boundaries cause faults </li></ul><ul><li>There are four types of faults, depending on the stress state that produces it. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Famous Locations <ul><li>Some Famous Locations of the strike-slip boundaries are… </li></ul><ul><li>New Zealand </li></ul><ul><li>Pacific and Australian plates </li></ul><ul><li>Northern Caribbean </li></ul><ul><li>Cuba </li></ul><ul><li>Hispaniola </li></ul><ul><li>California </li></ul>
  6. 6. Connections <ul><li>The areas with the strike-slip boundaries are more likely to have earthquakes. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>For example, the San Andreas fault has caused several earthquakes in California </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The movement of plates in a strike-slip boundary can increase the likelihood for a tsunami. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>For example, in December, 2004, there was a large plate movement, under the sea, which cause a gigantic tsunami near Indonesia, which killed many civilians </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Interesting Facts <ul><li>There are different kinds of strike-slip boundaries. For example… </li></ul><ul><li>Sinistral- left lateral </li></ul><ul><li>  Dextral- right lateral </li></ul><ul><li>  Riedel Shears </li></ul><ul><li>En Echelon Faults </li></ul><ul><li>Imbricate Fans </li></ul><ul><li>Duplexes </li></ul><ul><li>Flower Structures </li></ul><ul><li>Positive (Palm Tree) </li></ul><ul><li>Negative (Tulip) structure </li></ul><ul><li>Restraining Bends </li></ul><ul><li>Releasing Bends </li></ul>Sinstral Dextral
  8. 8. Historical Information <ul><li>On July 22, 1819, a very large earthquake took place, along the strike-slip boundary, between the Caribbean and North American plates in Guatemala </li></ul><ul><li>There was a discovery of a major strike-slip fault in Arabia-India, around the boundary that had barley been observed before, around December, 2007 </li></ul><ul><li>For more click: http://www.google.com/search?q=history+of+strike+slip+boundary&hl=en&rls=com.microsoft:en-us:IE-SearchBox&rlz=1I7SUNA_en&sa=X&tbo=1&num=20&tbs=tl:1,tll:2000,tlh:2019&ei=abExSregHIi_twe80sS6CQ&oi=timeline_histogram_nav&ct=timeline-histogram&cd=11 </li></ul>
