Tutor description

1. Write short notes on Marcalli Scale. The intensity of earthquake can be measured with the help of Mercali scale. Their measurements are expressed for degree of vibration. 2. Define Plate Tectonics - Plate Tectonics is based primarily due to seismic and geomagnetic activities. In this concept, the upper part of the earth up to a depth of 100 km

Write short notes on Marcalli Scale.The intensity of earthquake can be measured with the help of Mercali scale. Their measurements are expressed for degree of vibration.2. Define Plate Tectonics.Plate Tectonics is based primarily due to seismic and geomagnetic activities. In this concept, the upper part of the earth up to a depth of 100 km is actually divided into seven to ten major blocks called plates.3. Write notes on Fluvial Glacial drift.This is also called Stratified Drift. In this accumulation, Melts water plays a prominent part in their deposition. These deposition exhibit a definite sorting according to grain size of the particles like stream deposits.4. Define weathering. Name the different types of weathering.The term weathering means, the process of physical is breaking up (ie, Disintegration) and chemical rolling up (ie, Decomposition) of rock occurring simultaneously.5. Define Continental Drift.Accumulation of glacial debris directly from glacial melt waters are collectively called continental drift.6. Write short notes on Moraines.Moraines may be defined as accumulation of glacial debris (fragments of rocks, sand) that are found either on the base of an existing glacier or at various places alonga glacial valley. These material are mostly unasserted and forms
