111 Physical Geology

 

Exam #3 Review Sheet
Test Date: Nov. 8 (Monday)

Test Coverage: Structural Geology, Earthquakes, Earth’s Interior, and Plate Tectonics

Test Format: Multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank, and short answer/essay style questions (same as always)

Potential Short Answer/Essay Style Questions:
1. What is the difference between stress and strain? Discuss the different rock behaviors to stress.

2. Compare and contrast anticlines and synclines. Use sketches to illustrate differences.

3. Sketch and contrast the basic features of reverse, normal, and strike-slip faults. Be sure to include the tectonic setting associated each.

4. What is a focus versus an epicenter? How are the 4 basic types of seismic waves unique in terms of their wave motion, velocity, and type of material they can move through?

5. What are the two ways to measure the "size" of an earthquake? How do these two methods differ in determining the intensity vs. the magnitude of a quake?

6. How are seismic waves able to be used to interpret the Earth’s interior? Name at least 3 examples of information gathered using seismic waves about the Earth’s interior.

7. What is plate tectonics? Discuss how the theory of plate tectonics differs from the continental drift hypothesis.

8. Compare and contrast an oceanic - oceanic versus an oceanic – continental plate boundary. Provide examples of both types of plate boundaries.
