Example text

Earth’s magnetic field is shaped as if there were a huge bar magnet in the Earth’s core. Instead of a magnet, Earth’s rotation is thought to cause currents in the liquid outer core. Those currents create a magnetic field in a similar way in which power plants generate electricity when steam or falling water rotates an electrical conductor in a magnetic field. Stra Cape Mendocino p FIGURE 2-5. The magnetic polarity, or orientation, across the Juan de Fuca Ridge in the Pacific Ocean shows a symmetrical pattern, as shown in this regional survey (a similar nature of stripes exists along all spreading centers).

Stretched continental crust a p FIGURE 2-21. a. The East African Rift Valley spreads the continent apart at rates 100 times slower than typical oceanic rift zones. This rift forms one arm of a triple junction, from which the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden form somewhat more rapidly spreading rifts. b. The northern end of the Red Sea spreading zone connects with the Dead Sea transform fault. larger at the same rate as new oceanic crust forms. That is clearly not the case. The idea of two plates colliding is truly horrifying at first thought—the irresistible force finally meets the immovable object.

P Developed countries lose large amounts of money in a major disaster; poor countries lose larger numbers of lives. Predicting Catastrophe p Events are often neither cyclic nor completely random. p Although the precise date and time for a disaster cannot be predicted, understanding the natural processes behind disasters allows scientists to forecast the probability of a disaster striking a particular area. p There are numerous small events, fewer larger events, and only rarely a giant event. We are familiar with the common small events but tend not to expect the giant events that can create major catastrophes, because they come along so infrequently.
