Earthquakes & Volcanoes
An earthquake is a sudden, rapid shaking of the Earth caused by the release of energy stored in rocks. This energy can be built up and stored for many years and then released in seconds or minutes. Many earthquakes are so small that they can not be felt by humans. Some, on the other hand, have caused great destruction and have killed hundreds of thousands of people. The pink lines and dots on the map of the world above indicate the regions of earthquake activity.
Give Feedback. This results in an Earthquake. Earthquakes are related to cracks in the crust called faults. A volcano is a rupture on the crust of the Earth that allows hot lava, volcanic ash, and gases to escape from below the surface. To arrange the given numbers in order from smallest to greatest, find the smallest number among all the given numbers.

A tectonic weapon is a hypothetical device or system which could create earthquakes , volcanoes , or other seismic events in specified locations by interfering with the Earth's natural geological processes. It was defined in by Aleksey Vsevolodovich Nikolayev, corresponding member Russian Academy of Sciences : "A tectonic or seismic weapon would be the use of the accumulated tectonic energy of the Earth's deeper layers to induce a destructive earthquake". Theoretically, the tectonic weapon functions by creating a powerful charge of elastic energy in the form of deformed volume of the Earth's crust in a region of tectonic activity. Roger Clark, lecturer in geophysics at Leeds University said in the respected journal Nature in , responding to a newspaper report that there had been two secret Soviet programs, "Mercury" and "Volcano", aimed at developing a "tectonic weapon" that could set off earthquakes from great distance by manipulating electromagnetism, said "We don't think it is impossible, or wrong, but past experience suggests it is very unlikely". According to Nature these programs had been "unofficially known to Western geophysicists for several years". According to the story the Mercury program began in , three tests were conducted in Kyrgyzstan, and Volcano's last test occurred in Such weapons, whether or not they exist or are feasible, are a source of concern in official circles.

It is aligned to a group of grade 4 standards. It has a focus on Earth and space science with a secondary focus on engineering. In this module, students:. Use the feature buttons at the top of the page to turn on or off the different features. The sulfur dioxide option should be turned off for Lesson 2, as volcanic gases have not yet been introduced. To prepare the site for the Lesson 3 extension, select the Reset All Filters button on the lower left side of the viewer.
The earthquakes originate in tectonic plate boundary. The focus is point inside the earth where the earthquake started, sometimes called the hypocenter , and the point on the surface of the earth directly above the focus is called the epicenter. There are two ways by which we can measure the strength of an earthquake: magnitude and intensity. Magnitude is proportional to the energy released by an earthquake at the focus. It is calculated from earthquakes recorded by an instrument called seismograph.
Директор наверняка обратил внимание на выражение глаз Мидж, когда она выходила. - Не выпускай ее из приемной. Бринкерхофф кивнул и двинулся следом за Мидж. Фонтейн вздохнул и обхватил голову руками. Взгляд его черных глаз стал тяжелым и неподвижным. Возвращение домой оказалось долгим и слишком утомительным. Последний месяц был для Лиланда Фонтейна временем больших ожиданий: в агентстве происходило нечто такое, что могло изменить ход истории, и, как это ни странно директор Фонтейн узнал об этом лишь случайно.
Не видно, чтобы он пользовался электронной картой у главного входа. Поэтому он определенно .
Беккер принадлежал к миру людей, носивших университетские свитера и консервативные стрижки, - он просто не мог представить себе образ, который нарисовала Росио. - Попробуйте припомнить что-нибудь. Росио задумалась. - Нет, больше. В этот момент кровать громко заскрипела: клиент Росио попытался переменить позу.
Джабба ее не слушал, остервенело нажимая на кнопки. - Осторожно! - сказала Соши. - Нам нужны точные цифры.
