    the study of earthquakes, an instrument to measure earthquakes and the readout of an earthquake
  2. what are teh 3 types of stress on plates
    • compressional stress=convergent
    • tensional stress=divergent
    • shear stress=transform
  3. name the 4 types of faults
    • normal =hanging wall is below footwall
    • reverse=hanging wall is above footwall
    • thrust=low angle reverse faults
    • strike-slip=transform boundaries blocks slide by each other
  4. name 4 folds
    • monocline=single flex or bend
    • anticline=layers dip away from axis, oldest in the mid
