  • 2The san andreas fault?

    I can make a presentation on the San Andreas fault . so I can start ? :: It began 1857. The two ( earth ) plates moved together, so as to form a fault. written in English is this correct? I can use and have the correct time ? thank you

  • 3Will the san andreas fault line ever crack? or is it just a myth?

    and if it did crack then, what about Hollywood and Los Angeles and San Diego and San Fransico ? lol everyone just sink and die ? If people know the line of the San Andreas fault will break one day during a large earthquake , then why do people in these places ? I bet that one day in the distant future hundreds of years all that the earth will sink after a massive earthquake and will become a very famous for people to explore underwater cities .

  • 4What is the number of earthquakes that hit the San Andreas Fault line that has gone untold?

    I know that earthquakes are happening all the time , because the earth is constantly moving , but how many earthquakes hit Cali not know ?

  • 8I have a list of statements, I need to know if they are True or False.?

    1. during an earthquake , underground structures move as a unit with the surrounding rock , so the meters are relatively safe during an earthquake . 2.

Earthquakes are fairly evenly distributed throughout the earth's crust . 4. modern scale of earthquake magnitude based on the degree of damage . 5. A 4 on the Richter scale is twice as strong as the earthquake shaking 2. 6. adjacent blocks along the San Andreas fault move horizontally . 7. Carbon-14 is useful for dating geological events of the time Paleozotic . 8. the radioactive decay of 238U to 206Pb is essentially a 14c alpha decay and beta decay is 14n . 9. folds ( anticlines
