Clues

  • A cycle showing how to prepare, respond, recover and prevent severe impacts of hazards (4, 10)
  • Caused by internal Earth processes e.g. tectonic activity (11)
  • Events caused by movement and distribution of water (12)
  • Events percieved to be a threat to people and the environment (7, 6)
  • High density mix of lava blocks, pumice, ash and gas (11, 4)
  • Processes operating in the atmosphere resulting in extreme weather (11)
  • Scale measuring the total moment release of an earthquake (6, 9)
  • Two plates sliding along side each other in the same direction forming fault lines (12)
  • Where 2 plates move apart forming rift valleys, mid-ocean ridges and sub-marine volcaoes (12)
  • Where shaking moves soil grains apart, making it flow like liquid (12)
