1,642 wordster> What is the evidence for our knowledge of the internal structure of the Earth? As we enter the twenty first century we are beginning to learn more and more about the composition of the Earth. Early predictions have thrown up some rather strange and peculiar thoughts as to what is making up our Earth, but now days scientists can be confident that the Earth is made up of what they think. As from experiments and other sources of information a picture to what is really down there is b...

Earths Crust Earthquakes Earthquake
288 wordsWhat is an Earthquake? An earthquake is a shaking of the ground caused by the sudden shifting of large sections of the earths crust. Earthquakes are one of the most powerful events on earth, and they can be terrifying. A severe earthquake may release energy 10, 000 times as great as that of the first atomic bomb. Rock movements during an earthquake can make rivers change their direction. Earthquakes can trigger landslides and Volcanoes that cause great damage and loss of life. Large earthquakes ...

Earths Crust San Francisco
1,193 wordsAn earthquake is shaking or trembling of the earth that is volcanic or tectonic in origin. A broadly satisfying explanation of the majority of earthquakes can be given in terms of what is called plate tectonics. The basic idea is that the Earths outermost part also called the lithosphere consists of several large and fairly stable slabs of solid and relatively rigid rock called plates (Bravely 154). These plates continuously move pushing and rubbing against each other. Since the earliest of time...

2,606 wordsGeology is the study of the earths landmasses. The earth is constantly changing. Often changes are to slow to be able to see them in a human lifetime. Forces cause different things to happen on the surface of the earth (Such as Mountains growing and eroding). Scientists believe that the earth was formed by very dense elements such as iron and nickel which are in the core of the earth. The earths crust covers the mantle. The crust is made up of over two thousand different compounds called mineral...

2,884 wordstrembling or Natural Disasters earthquake, trembling or shaking movement of the earths surface. Most earthquakes are minor tremors. Larger earthquakes usually begin with slight tremors but rapidly take the form of one or more violent shocks, and end in vibrations of gradually diminishing force called aftershocks. The subterranean point of origin of an earthquake is called its focus; the point on the surface directly above the focus is the epicenter. The magnitude and intensity of an earthquake i...
