QUESTION 3

  1. Which event causes massive coastal flooding?

    a tsunami

    a tornado

    a hurricane's winds

2 points  

QUESTION 4

  1. How are people today being protected from tsunamis?

    a volcano

    a hurricane

    a tornado

    volcanic eruption

    landslide

QUESTION 8

  1. Why are most volcanoes found around the Ring of Fire?

    This is a location of numerous plate boundaries.

    This is a location within an active oceanic plate.

    This is a location of fast moving continental crust.

QUESTION 9

  1. Hurricane Camille was so strong that it broke the instruments used to determine wind speed. How were scientists able to determine that is was a category 5 storm?

    It had very low pressure.

    It caused massive flooding.

    The size of the storm was gigantic.

2 points  

QUESTION 10

  1. What are storm surges?

    During hurricanes, water rises above the normal tide level.

    Earthquakes cause this water to rise higher than its normal tide level.

    These waves, which are often caused by landslides, are higher than usual.

QUESTION 13

  1. What types of changes have been made in the United States to help protect people from earthquakes?

    Building codes ensure that structures can withstand shaking.

    Warnings go off when an earthquake is expected, and people evacuate the area.

    Barriers have been built to prevent flooding by a tsunami.

  1. What made the San Francisco earthquake of 1900 so devastating?

    The earthquake occurred in an area that had poorly built structures.

    The earthquake damaged water mains, so fires could not be extinguished.

    The earthquake caused a tsunami that flooded the city.

QUESTION 20

  1. The Andes Mountains are found along the western coast of South America. What kind of plate boundary is responsible for this mountain range?

    The Nazca plate is converging with the South American plate.

    The Nazca plate and the North American plate are at a transform boundary.

QUESTION 25

  1. What is a fault?

    a type of folding in which the two sides move in relation to one another

    a type of fracture in which the two sides stay relatively in the same place

    a type of fracture in which the two sides move in relation to one another

2 points  

QUESTION 26

  1. When does a fault occur?

    A fault occurs when folding in the crust causes land on one side of a fracture to move in relation to the other side.

    A fault occurs when folding in the crust causes land on one side of a fracture to stay even with the land on the other side.
