Tsunamis are caused by violent seafloor movement associated with earthquakes, landslides, lava entering the sea, seamount collapse, or meteorite impact. The most common cause is earthquakes. See the percentages on the right for the geological events that cause tsunamis.

What is an Earthquake?

In Alaska in , a magnitude 9. What causes the ground tremble like that? The answer is simple. The Earth's surface is on the move. The surface of the earth , called the "crust," is not one solid piece. It's more like a 20 piece puzzle.

See the table of major earthquakes. Over the centuries, earthquakes have been responsible for millions of deaths and an incalculable amount of damage to property. These phenomena are primarily responsible for deaths and injuries. Very great earthquakes occur on average about once per year. Earthquake waves, more commonly known as seismic waves , are vibrations generated by an earthquake and propagated within Earth or along its surface. There are four principal types of elastic waves: two, primary and secondary waves, travel within Earth, whereas the other two, Rayleigh and Love waves, called surface waves, travel along its surface. In addition, seismic waves can be produced artificially by explosions.

Earthquake

An earthquake also known as a quake , tremor or temblor is the shaking of the surface of the Earth resulting from a sudden release of energy in the Earth 's lithosphere that creates seismic waves. Earthquakes can range in size from those that are so weak that they cannot be felt to those violent enough to propel objects and people into the air, and wreak destruction across entire cities. The seismicity , or seismic activity , of an area is the frequency, type, and size of earthquakes experienced over a period of time. The word tremor is also used for non-earthquake seismic rumbling. At the Earth's surface, earthquakes manifest themselves by shaking and displacing or disrupting the ground.


A tsunami is caused by an earthquake, landslide, or volcanic eruption on the sea floor. During an earthquake, seismic waves can produce powerful ocean waves.

These plates move towards each other a convergent boundary , apart a divergent boundary or past each other a transform boundary. Earthquakes are caused by a sudden release of stress along faults in the earth's crust. The continuous motion of tectonic plates causes a steady build-up of pressure in the rock strata on both sides of a fault until the stress is sufficiently great that it is released in a sudden, jerky movement. The resulting waves of seismic energy propagate through the ground and over its surface, causing the shaking we perceive as earthquakes. Earthquakes caused by plate tectonics are called tectonic quakes.

Левый угол пуст. Следуя плану, он бросился в проход и, оказавшись внутри, лицом к правому углу, выстрелил. Пуля отскочила от голой стены и чуть не попала в него .

Увы, она уже знала ответ. Так вот какова месть Танкадо. Уничтожение ТРАНСТЕКСТА.

Earthquake: Causes, Effects and Magnitude measurement

Он отпустил ее и прижал ладони к лицу. Из носа у него пошла кровь. Хейл упал на колени, не опуская рук. - Ах ты, мерзавка! - крикнул он, скорчившись от боли. Сьюзан бросилась к двери, моля Бога, чтобы Стратмор в этот миг включил резервное энергоснабжение и дверь открылась.

Все трое замерли. Над ними, опираясь на перила площадки перед своим кабинетом, стоял Стратмор. Какое-то время в здании слышался только неровный гул расположенных далеко внизу генераторов. Сьюзан отчаянно пыталась встретиться взглядом со Стратмором. Коммандер.

Левый крайний Джорджтауна, подавая угловой, отправил мяч в аут, и трибуны негодующе загудели. Защитники поспешили на свою половину поля. - А ты? - спросил Беккер.  - Что предпочитаешь. - У меня черный пояс по дзюдо.

    Aside from being horrified by the experience, the after-effects of an earthquake are something that is very alarming just like the occurrence of tsunamis.

    SUMMARY The chapter presents planners with 1 a description of the most hazardous geologic phenomena-earthquakes, volcanoes, and tsunamis-and their effects; 2 a discussion of how to use existing information to assess the hazards associated with these phenomena and incorporate mitigation measures early In an Integrated development study; 3 sources of geologic data and maps; and 4 information with which to make key decisions early in the planning process.
