GLOBAL HAZARD revision sheet 2 – how PLATE TECTONICS shape our world
Theory
Layers of the earth describe:
Case Studies
Diagram identify the layers
Haiti quake 12/01/2010
Accurately LOCATE
Haiti
Port au Prince
The Gonave platelet
The Caribbean plate
The Enriquillo- Garden fault
Cuba
Florida
Inner core
Outer core
Mantle
Crust(lithosphere)
Challenge: What is the ASTHENOSPHER?
Draw a labelled diagram to show the features of these margins:
Constructive
What type of plate margin was it?
Consequences of the quake (primary/secondary)
Destructive
Response to the quake ( include details of what it is like today)
Conservative
Collision
Why has it been so difficult to rebuild Haiti after the quake?
Draw a diagram to show how hotspots are
formed
What are the key differences between deep and
shallow focus earthquakes?
Earthquake mitigation
Why are earthquakes hard to predict?
How do these technologies work:
Interferograms
Shield volcanoes
Strainmeters
laser beams
Foreshock monitoring
composite volcanoes
Building earthquake resistant buildings: How do THESE ideas work ( with diagrams)
Base isolation
X and K bracing
Weight dampners
Early Warning Systems – How does the shake alert system work?
