Chapter 9.1 Notes Earthquakes
The vibration in the ground that result movement along breaks in the Earth's lithosphere
Cause particles in the ground to move up and down in a rolling motion.
Cause particles in the ground to move in a push-pullmotion similar to a coiled spring
Cause particles to go up and down at right angles relative to direction the way travels
Energy that travels as vibrations on and in earth
Scientist that study earthquakes.
Measures and records ground motion and can be used to determine the distance seismic waves trave
A graphical illustration of seismic waves
A break in Earth's lithosphere where one block of toward, away from, or past another
The location on Earth's surface directly above the Earthquake's focus
The seismic waves originate where rocks first move along the fault, at a location inside earth
