2. any solid mass of mineral or mineral-like
matter that occurs naturally as part of our
planet
7. the uppermost mantle, along with the
overlying crust, that behaves as a strong layer
9. forms when sediment is eventually
compacted and cemented
10. molten material that forms deep beneath
earth's surface
11. two plates grind past each other without
harming the lithosphere
15. and thereby produce earthquakes,
volcanoes, mountains, and the crust itself
16. a surface feature in the sea floor produced
by a descending plate during subduction
18. weathered earth materials
19. a fault along which the movement is
horizontal and and parallel to the trend of the
fault
20. the rock above the fault plane has moved
down relative to the rock below
21. a result in which the material above the
fault plane moves up in relation to the
material below
1. interactions among earth's water, air, and
land that can cause rocks to change from one
type to another
3. forms when magma cools and hardens
underneath earth's surface or as a result from a
volcanic eruption
4. a theory that proposes earth's outer shell
consists of individual plates that interact in
various
5. two plates move together
6. in which rocks are physically or chemically
broken down by air, water, and living things
8. a reverse fault with a dip less than 45°,
normally about 10-15°
10. a sedimentary rock that goes under
extreme pressure and heat
12. process in which plate tectonics form a
new oceanic lithosphere
13. two plates move apart
14. magma that reaches earth's surface
17. destructive plate margins where the
oceanic crust is being pushed down into the
mantle
