QuestionAnswer
This type of STRESS occurs at a divergent boundary Tension
This type of FAULT occurs at a convergent boundary Reverse
This type of BOUNDARY occurs at a strike-slip fault Transform
This type of STRESS causes a strike-slip fault Shearing
This type of FAULT occurs from tension stress Normal
This type of BOUNDARY occurs from compression stress Convergent
This type of STRESS occurs from a reverse fault Compression
This type of FAULT occurs at a transform boundary Strike-Slip
This type of BOUNDARY occurs from a normal fault Divergent
The place (usually below the surface) where rocks break and seismic waves are released Focus
The point directly above the focus, when seismic waves reach the surface Epicenter
The slowest type of seismic (earthquake) waves Surface waves
This type of seismic wave only travels through solids S waves
This type of seismic wave is the fastest type of earthquake wave P wave
This type of seismic wave travels longitudinally (compressions and rarefactions) P wave
This type of seismic wave is not the fastest seismic wave, nor the slowest S Wave
This type of seismic wave is the most destructive Surface Wave
This the machine that captures earthquake vibrations Seismograph
