Physical Results of EarthquakesSlide2

They Shape Our Landscape

As plates move, we may feel these movements as earthquakes

If there were no plate motions, our planet would not look like home

There would be no mountains, no valleys, no plateaus

More than disasters on the human scaleSlide3

Earth Shaking =

Earth Shaping

Earthquakes and other tectonic activities have been occurring for as long as the Earth has existed.

Events range from small cracks in the soil to the raising and lowering of huge chunks of lithosphere

Happens over long periods of timeSlide4


Where rock is strained beyond limit, it will fracture, and the rock mass on either side will move abruptly.Slide5


Accumulated stress and strain within rocks of the lithosphere may cause great warps or folds in rock layers.Slide6

Soil Liquefaction

Much of the dollar damage due to earthquakes result from liquefaction

Table group exploration and discussion



liquefaction in Japan;


Tokyo ParkSlide7


Earthquakes trigger many landslides, particularly in the rainy season


of landslides – general


of landslide – Mt. St. Helens (lahar

Deaths due to Earthquakes/Tsunamis Slide9


Read “I survived a tsunami”

Complete the worksheet on one side to order the events

On the back, answer the questions: “

In what ways did Masahiro exhibit courage?” What do


think of Masahiro? How do


think you would have reacted under the same circumstances



A smaller earthquake that follows a more powerful earthquake in same area




A process by which the shaking of the ground causes loose, wet soil to act like a liquid.



A water wave caused by an earthquake, volcanic eruption or landslide.
