Question 1

Question
What are the characteristics of the continental crust?
Answer
  • It is older and very dense
  • It is newer and less dense

Question 2

Question
Earthquakes occur at conservative plate boundaries.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 3

Question
At a constructive plate boundary...
Answer
  • ...two plates move away from each other.
  • ...two of the same plates collide and force each other up.
  • ...lava flows and lahars can destroy nearby settlements.

Question 4

Question
Where are shield volcanoes usually found?
Answer
  • Conservative plate boundaries
  • Destructive plate boundaries
  • Collision plate boundaries
  • Constructive plate boundaries

Question 5

Question
You can measure volcanic activity with a tilt meter.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 6

Question
What is a crater?
Answer
  • Magma, once it reaches the surface.
  • Central tube where magma travels through.
  • A bowl-shaped basin in the top of a volcano.
  • A settlement near an active volcano.

Question 7

Question
Some effects of a super volcano eruption include:
Answer
  • 1,000 Km3 of material is erupted
  • The whole town or city is destroyed
  • There will be worldwide starvation
  • Thousands of lives are lost

Question 8

Question
What is the first step in the formation of a super volcano?
Answer
  • Tension is released from within the crust.
  • Magma rises up through cracks in the crust to form a large magma basin below the surface. The pressure causes a bulge.
  • Two plates move towards each other.
  • A destructive landslide or mud flow takes place and dries up on the earth's surface.

Question 9

Question
An earthquake is the shaking and vibration of the Earth's crust due to the movement of tectonic plates.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 10

Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 11

Question
What does a seismometer detect?
Answer
  • Strength and magnitude of an earthquake.
  • Where the epicentre is.
  • The severity of an earthquake.
  • Vibrations caused by earthquakes.

Question 12

Question
What is the focus of an earthquake?
Answer
  • The point where the pressure is released.
  • The point above the epicentre.
  • The point below the epicentre.
  • The place where the most damage of an earthquake occurs.

Question 13

Question
What are some precautions that could be taken to reduce the effects of an earthquake?
Answer
  • Have buildings with interlocking steel frames
  • Build buildings further apart
  • Remove gas mains
  • Close some roads

Question 14

Question
A tsunami occurs when the oceanic crust replaces the continental crust on the ocean floor.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 15

Question
What is the main impact of a tsunami?
Answer
  • Aftershock
  • Flooding
  • Water retreating
  • Less water in the sea

Question 16

Question
Farmers move their cattle to the top of the fold mountain during summer because it is warmer.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 17

Question
What are the two first steps of a fold mountain formation?
Answer
  • Rivers flow into the ocean.
  • The continental plate displaces the oceanic crust.
  • Two plates push up against each other.
  • Sediments deposit in the geosyncline.
