I'm pretty sure that earthquake was caused by the one plate deciding to go underneath the continents plate. I think?

Give me the specific name of this geologic feature.
taramgrant0543664
  • taramgrant0543664
Would it be fault line?

Tell me the specific name. Ex: San Andreas Fault, Himalayas Mountain, Mariana Trench, if it is a plate boundary, you can tell me which 2 plates are interacting with each other instead. Not a fault line btw.

It's been quiet sometime since I even took a look at any of this stuff lol
taramgrant0543664
  • taramgrant0543664
Would it be the Nazca plate and probably another plate that I don't know lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
All I can say is "almost"

It is important to know if you live near an earthquake plate boundary zone.

The Chile triple junction is the only modern site on Earth where an actively spreading mid-ocean ridge crest is being swallowed by a subduction zone at a continental margin. This is a particularly interesting area to study because we can observe two types of plate boundaries (divergent and convergent) and their processes in very close proximity. I found this does this have anything to do with it?
anonymous
  • anonymous
A triple junction occurs when 3 plates boundaries intersect, leading it to produce 3 different geologic features. Ex:mid oceanic ridge is one of the 3
taramgrant0543664
  • taramgrant0543664
Good to know
anonymous
  • anonymous
Another example is the triple junction in northwest USA, where North American, Juan de Fuca, and Pacific Plates meet. It produces very seismic active earthquakes and volcanoes. The 3 are San Andreas Fault, Mendocino Fault, and the Cascadia Subduction Zone.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Still not the answer though. Looking or the more specific plate boundary though.

I'm invested in this question I'm going to figure this out let me do some more research, I'll be back lol
taramgrant0543664
  • taramgrant0543664
Is it a trench?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Example:San Andreas Fault is a transform plate boundary meaning two plates slide past each other. (North American and Pacific Plate Cascadia Subduction Zone is a convergent plates boundary meaning two or more plates collide with each other and the continental plates always overlies on the oceanic plate. The oceanic plate of Juan de Fuca and the North American continental plate. The Mendocino fault is a transform plate boundary. Faults are always transform. It is between the North American and Gorda plate grinding past each other.

Triple junction produce many geological feature that are very seismically active due to the amount of plate boundaries involved. From divergent to convergent to transform. I just want that one feature in that triple junction that actually produced the largest earthquake in the world. (9.6)
anonymous
  • anonymous
If you know whether transform, convergent, or transform plate boundary produces the largest earthquakes, then you know what features of the one you chose would have
taramgrant0543664
  • taramgrant0543664
I just read about the Darwin Gap and how Darwin experienced an earthquake there in 1835
taramgrant0543664
  • taramgrant0543664
Would it be convergent?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes, what are its features?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Hint: 3 different kinds of convergent oceanic-oceanic convergence oceanic-continental convergence continental-continental convergence All produce at least 1 different feature, because some have 2 features. The 2 different kinds can have the same feature also.
anonymous
  • anonymous
You can tell if a plate is oceanic or continental. For example:Pacific Plate is oceanic North American Plate is continental.
taramgrant0543664
  • taramgrant0543664
It's oceanic continental because of the Nazca plate which is the ocean and the South American plate is continental?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes, that is correct. And what features are in an oceanic continental convergence zone? Hint: Cascadia is also oceanic-continental (Juan De Fuca & North American Plate)
taramgrant0543664
  • taramgrant0543664
Well in North America there's the Rockies mountains where those two plates meet
taramgrant0543664
  • taramgrant0543664
So I'm assuming that there's mountains or volcanoes there and I read about the Peru- Chilie Trench
anonymous
  • anonymous
Mountains forms at continental continental collision which is C-C convergent.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes, that is right! Peru Chile Trench can be called Nazca-South American Subduction Zone or Peru-Chile Subduction Zone. Cascadia Subduction Zone is a filled trench so they it called Subduction zone instead. A trench can be called a subduction zone but a subduction zone can sometimes be called a trench. As for the other C-C convergent it produce long mountain belts: Himalayas Mountain. For Oceanic Oceanic convergent, an example would be the Mariana Trench which is home to the world's deepest sea floor. So the features of it are island arc and trench. Another example is the Aleutian Island.

You live in Canada, but there is some intraplate plate boundary there. 0.0
taramgrant0543664
  • taramgrant0543664
Interesting I would have known this if I decided to do earth and space science as a major instead I picked chemistry
taramgrant0543664
  • taramgrant0543664
Intraplate boundry?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Seismic activity (earthquakes and volcanoes) not associated with the edge of a plate boundary.
anonymous
  • anonymous
The Ring of Fire is a series of volcanoes and most of them are on the edge of a plate boundary.

There was one in Canada not very long ago. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2010_Central_Canada_earthquake Is that far from you in Canada?
taramgrant0543664

Well I normally live on the west side of Ontario so it's at least a 20 hour drive to that area

But 1886 Charleston, SC earthquake is intraplate too and it was a 7.0. :(
taramgrant0543664
  • taramgrant0543664
SC? South Carolina?
anonymous
  • anonymous
So is the Mississippi one that probably made the river flow the opposite direction
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes, Charleston is in South Carolina. Heard of the shooting?
taramgrant0543664
  • taramgrant0543664
Yes yes I did
taramgrant0543664

Unfortunately
