Review of Short Phrases and Links

    This Review contains major "Large Earthquakes"- related terms, short phrases and links grouped together in the form of Encyclopedia article.

Definitions

  1. Large earthquakes are less common along the central Alpine Fault, where the plates are not subducting and the forces are accommodated in different ways.
  2. Large earthquakes are common along such strike-slip, or transform, boundaries. (Web site)

Earth

  1. A similar phenomenon is known on Earth in the aftermath of large earthquakes. (Web site)

Boundaries

  1. The point is that the lithosphere is very thin and weak at these boundaries, so the strain cannot build up enough to cause large earthquakes. (Web site)

Years

  1. It showed that up to four times as many volcanic eruptions occurred during the year following very large earthquakes than did so in other years. (Web site)

Explosive Eruptions

  1. Explosive eruptions can also produce large earthquakes. (Web site)

Plate Boundaries

  1. Faults slip with a stick-slip behavior, giving rise to large earthquakes that occur primarily on the plate boundaries. (Web site)

Alpine Fault

  1. The Alpine Fault, New Zealand, is a globally significant dextral-reverse fault that is thought to fail in large earthquakes (c.

Southeast Flank

  1. Additionally, large earthquakes like those in 1868 and 1975 caused significant down-dropping of portions of the southeast flank of Kilauea.

Eruptions

  1. Landslides on volcano slopes are triggered when eruptions, heavy rainfall, or large earthquakes cause these materials to break free and move downhill. (Web site)

Plates

  1. The friction between the plates can be so great that very large strains can build up before they are periodically relieved by large earthquakes. (Web site)

Fault

  1. Over the last 1,500 years, large earthquakes along the fault have occurred every 150 years or so.

Convergent Boundaries

  1. As two plates rub against one another, a number of small and large earthquakes are common near convergent boundaries. (Web site)

Southern Shore

  1. Large earthquakes have occurred in the vicinity of the volcano more recently, notably in 1987 along the southern shore of the lake at a depth of 11 km.

Subduction Zones

  1. Both types of subduction zones are associated with large earthquakes that originate at a depth of as much as 700 kilometres. (Web site)

Tectonic Plate Boundaries

  1. While most of the large earthquakes in the Vancouver area occur at tectonic plate boundaries, the 1946 Vancouver Island earthquake was a crustal event. (Web site)

Earthquakes

  1. California is famous for earthquakes along the San Andreas Fault zone but there is another type of plate boundary where large earthquakes occur.

Cascadia Subduction Zone

  1. Because of the very large fault area, the Cascadia subduction zone can produce large earthquakes of magnitude 7.0 or greater.
  2. As in the Cascadia subduction zone, the sudden release of strain accumulated along this fault can produce large earthquakes (Dengler and others, 1995).

Large Earthquakes

  1. Because earthquakes can only occur when a rock is deforming in a brittle fashion, subduction zones can create large earthquakes. (Web site)
  2. Talang is on a list of volcanoes identified as eruption risks by John Seach following the large earthquakes in the region.
  3. There have been no historic eruptions at Toba, but large earthquakes have occurred, the most recent in 1987 along the southern shore of the lake. (Web site)
