-As you go down in depth it gets hotter 2.5 degrees centigrade for
every 100m
-What we know about the earths surface is the result of
geophysics, the application of physical principals to the earth
-Focus is where the energy is released
-Earthquakes are this release of energy
-Epicenter is the point on the earths surface directly above the
focus
-Bluff is the steep slope that occurs where weve moved one block
against another
-Seismic risk assessment is trying to identify what the danger is to
communities as a result of earthquakes
- Morphological surface expressions of faults
-Seismic waves are very abrupt movements along the faults
-Not all faults produce earthquakes, but some creep and release
energy all the time, whereas there are others that lock and build
energy and release
-Primary waves move energy through alternating compression
producing waves at speeds of 7km/s, can also go through fluids
and are able to go completely through the core of the earth
-Secondary waves are slower (5km/s) and are like waves. Plus cant
go through the core or fluids
-Seismograph is an instrument used to measure the earthquakes
-Seismogram is the graph

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
