  • volcanic eruptions

  • Indonesian coastlines show the effects of past and present tectonic instability, volcanic eruptions, and changes of sea level. (nzdl.org)
  • faults
  • In addition, the Bunce Fault passes through an area of relatively low bathymetric relief, which is less prone to large, seismically activated submarine slides than faults crossing the steep slope north of Puerto Rico. (noaa.gov)
  • Our kinematic and structural data allow us to confirm the interpretation that the Santa Barbara Basin is the precursor of the Upper Valdarno Basin and that both basins developed in structural depressions formed by the interplay between normal and transfer faults, framed in the extensional tectonics which characterizes Tuscany since Miocene.

  • plate
  • Various theories regarding the origin of the Yellowstone "hotspot" (YS) have been proposed, e.g., the mantle plume theory of Canadian geologist J. Tuzo Wilson (Wilson, 1963) but usually credited to Princeton University geologist W. Jason Morgan (Morgan, 1971) , and the competitive plate tectonic theory of Donald Anderson (Anderson & Natland, 2005) . (scirp.org)
  • The expedition mapped the Caribbean plate, an entire tectonic province of the Earth, encompassing approximately 22,700 sq nautical miles. (noaa.gov)
  • therefore, the picture that emerged from these maps indicated a deformation created by large plate tectonic forces. (noaa.gov)
  • The North American tectonic plate, which lies north of the trench, is descending under the Puerto Rico and Virgin Island blocks south of the trench. (noaa.gov)
  • The large submarine slides on the downgoing plate suggest that the bottom of the trench may have deepened recently (see the essay, ' Trench ', for details). (noaa.gov)
  • Evidence of tectonic plate movement can be seen in the escarpment walls. (touregypt.net)
  • The basaltic volcanic field is part of the larger Harrat Ash Shamah-the largest volcanic field on the Arabian tectonic plate. (spaceref.com)
  • Located on the Eurasian Tectonic Plate, there are several fault lines running through the country which are seismically active. (encyclopedia.com)
  • sediment
  • A delta, characterized by large, flat, fan-shaped deposits of sediment at the mouth of a river, occurs when sediments accumulate more rapidly than ocean currents can carry them away. (noaa.gov)
  • The older flow surfaces also have light tan sediment accumulating in shallow depressions, in contrast to the relatively pristine surfaces of the darker, younger flows. (spaceref.com)
  • zones
  • This synthem was deposited in a tectonic depression reasonably delimited to the East by a west-dipping normal fault system and delimited to the North and to the South by left-lateral transtensional shear zones, which controlled the main directions of the alluvial drainage. (geoscienceworld.org)
  • During Early Pleistocene, a new master normal fault system (Trappola fault system) developed further to the East, determining the widening of the previous tectonic depression, now delimited to the North and to the South by the regional Piombino-Faenza and Arbia-Val Marecchia transfer zones, respectively.

  • structural
  • This work presents new structural, sedimentological, and paleontological data from Mutalj, the largest Middle Miocene quarry at the southern slope of FG (Fig. 1). (yumpu.com)
  • form
  • In map view, many large valley glacier systems, which have numerous tributary glaciers that join to form a large "trunk glacier," resemble the roots of a plant. (britannica.com)
  • areas
  • Japan has a large and, to a great extent, ethnically homogeneous population, which is heavily concentrated in the low-lying areas along the Pacific coast of Honshu. (britannica.com)
  • Its mountain ranges are areas of Cainozoic uplift, augmented by large volcanic constructions, and its bordering seas are underlain by unstable shelf areas, especially towards the Java Trench, the subduction zone that lies to the south of the Indonesian island-arc. (nzdl.org)
  • system
  • A large fault system, which is similar to the San Andreas Fault in California, was discovered in very deep water near the trench. (noaa.gov)
  • Viewed by themselves, these are nearly indistinguishable from the lower reaches of a large valley glacier system. (britannica.com)

  • Some of the largest are located in North America and they have different names such as a bay, lagoon, sound or slough. (thoughtco.com)
  • South of the Qattarah depression there is a band of north-south sand dunes that continue as far south as the Kharga Depression, where they flatten out. (touregypt.net)
  • North to south the depression is 115 miles (185 km), east to west 9-18 miles (15-30 km). (touregypt.net)
  • miles
  • The Western or Libyan Desert is much larger than the Arabian Desert, covering 332,434 square miles (681,000 square km) and comprises two thirds of Egypt. (touregypt.net)
  • The lake, which lies in a great crescent nearly four hundred miles long, fills a widening valley where two tectonic plates, pulling apart, drop the depression ever lower. (nybooks.com)
  • province
  • A large igneous province (LIP) normally will be left behind as it did in the case of YS, the widely familiar Columbia River Basalt Province (CRBP), in the US Pacific NW of N California, Oregon and Washington. (scirp.org)

  • bottom
  • Hydrothermal vents in the lake floor at Frolihka Bay, in the northeast-the first such vents ever located in fresh water-support rich communities of bottom life, including translucent shrimps and snails, large mushroom-shaped sponges, and other forms ordinarily associated with salt water.
