Earthquakes Crossword

Type
Crossword
Description

This crossword contains the following questions and answers:

a sudden and violent shaking of the ground, sometimes causing great destruction, as a result of movements within the earth's crust or volcanic action. Earthquake
The point on the Earth's surface that is directly above the hypocentre or focus, the point where an earthquake or underground explosion originates. Epicenter
The severity of earthquake shaking is assessed using a descriptive scale – the Modified Mercalli Intensity Scale. Intensity
An area on the margins of tectonic plates where seismic, volcanic, and tectonic activity takes place as a consequence of the relative motion of the plates. Plate Boundary
The point in the earth where the earthquake rupture or fault movement actually occurred. Focus
an instrument that measures and records details of earthquakes, such as force and duration. Seismograph
A sudden movement of the ground that releases elastic energy stored in rocks and generates seismic waves. Ground Movement
a twelve-point scale for expressing the local intensity of an earthquake, ranging from I (virtually imperceptible) to XII (total destruction). Mercalli Scale
A thin zone of crushed rock separating blocks of the earth's crust. Fault
A magnitude number to quantify the energy released by an earthquake. Richter Scale
The great size or extent of something. (size) Magnitude
A nonlinear scale used when there is a large range of quantities. Logarithmic Scale

the place where two plates more apart divergent boundary
the place where two plates come together convergent boundary
a place where two plates slip past each other transform boundary
