      (a) Subduction of an ocean plate beneath an ocean plate results in a volcanic island arc, an ocean trench and many earthquakes. (b) Japan is an arc-shaped island arc composed of volcanoes off the Asian mainland, as seen in this satellite image. An animation of an ocean continent plate boundary is seen here. Earthquakes are caused by geologic movement in the Earth's crust. This activity will teach students about how earthquakes occur and damage they can create.

      Patterns of EarthQuakes and Volcanoes Scientists study and record seismic data and volcanic activity in order to support the theory of plate tectonics. The evidence proves that there is a district relationship between seismic activity, volcanic activity, and the lithospheric plate boundaries.   Earthquakes from 7 to 8 are major; about 15 of these occur annually. Every year, at least one earthquake with a magnitude over 8 — a "great" quake — wreaks havoc. An earthquake with a.

Earthquakes and volcanic activity are closely related to each other. In fact, earthquakes usually accompany a volcanic eruption. Similarly, unusual earthquakes can also lead to volcanic eruptions. Before discussing the relationship between earthquakes and volcanoes, let’s take a brief look at each of them individually.

In certain areas, an earthquake can trigger mudslides, which slip down mountain slopes and can bury habitations below. A submarine earthquake can cause a tsunami, a series of damaging waves that ripple outward from the earthquake epicenter and inundate coastal cities.

Like earthquakes and volcanoes, mountains are created because of the movement of Earth's Tectonic Plates. When plates collide, the Earth's Crust folds up into mountains or mountain ranges.

Many of the rocks inside these mountains or mountain ranges were once buried deep beneath the Earth. Earthquakes occur when rocks beneath the ground abruptly move positions. This sudden motion makes the ground shake, sometimes with great violence.

Although harboring destructive potential, earthquakes are one of the essential geological processes contributing to the formation of mountains. This book is designed to be used as a study aid for reviewing class material pertaining to our class discussions on plate tectonics, earthquakes, and volcanoes.

Book Characters On the first page of the book you will notice three characters at the bottom of the page. Tiny earthquakes were detected by the Cambridge volcano seismology group down to depth of 30 km below the surface, as molten rock stored at depth was released and moved upwards during the eruption.

Earthquakes occur nearly every day in Washington. Most are too small to be felt or cause damage. Large earthquakes are less common but can cause. The energy released in earthquakes from this belt is about 15 percent of the world total. There also are striking connected belts of seismic activity, mainly along oceanic ridges —including those in the Arctic Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean, and the western Indian Ocean —and along the rift valleys of East Africa.
