restless earth

HideShow resource information
atmosphere
gases and air around us
1 of 26
hydrospere
the layer of water
2 of 26
biospere
thin layer of living things on the crust
3 of 26
geosphere
the rocks of the crust and deeper towards core
4 of 26
how we damaging atmosphere?
releasing CO2
5 of 26
how we damaging hydrosphere?
using too much water in some places
6 of 26
how we damaging biosphere?
deforstation
7 of 26
how we damaging geosphere?
using up fossil fuels
8 of 26
continental crust?
land,low density,thick
9 of 26
oceanic crust?
below ocean,thin,dense
10 of 26
how do we know inside of earth is hot?
volcanoes,hot springs
11 of 26
what is geothermal heat?
heat from inside of earth produced by radioactive decay in core and mantle.
12 of 26
what moves tectonic plates due to geothermal heat?
convection currents
13 of 26
magnetosphere?
earth surrounded by invisible magnetic field protects earth from harmful radiation from space or sun.
14 of 26
pangea?
continents were once joined together.
15 of 26
what is plate boundary?
two plates meet
16 of 26
constructive plate boundary?
two oceanic plates move apart from each other. then oceanic crust is forming in gap,magma injected between two plates cools to form ocean crust.
17 of 26
hazards of constructive plate boundary?
small eathquakes becuase of friction when plates tear apart.
18 of 26
destructive plate boundary?
ocean plate meets continental plate.moving towards eachother.
19 of 26
hazards of destructive plate boundary?
earthquakes,tsunmai,explosive volcanoes
20 of 26
conservative plate boundary?
two plates sliding past each other.
21 of 26
hazards of conservative plate boundary?
destructive earthquakes,no volcanoes
22 of 26
collision zone?
two continental plates meet move towards each other push upwards forming mountain.
23 of 26
what is a volcanic explosivity index
measures destructive power of volcano from 1 to 8
24 of 26
volcanic hazards?
lava flows,acid rain,landslides
25 of 26
what causes tsunami?
as tsunami waves reach shore water becomes shallower.extra friction slows bottom of the wave down, causing water at top of wave to pile u,increased wave height.
