Motion here is thought to help drive plate tectonicsI.The downward movement of sediments and oceanic crust at subduction zones, which generates molten material  Question 7Dome A. The spot along a fault where movement takes place during an earthquakeB.A broad upwarped feature that is roughly circular or oval-shaped when viewed from aboveC.The spot on Earth’s surface directly above a fault where movement takes place during an earthquakeD.The folding of rock due to overlying pressureE.A fold that is highest in the middleF.Long, low cliffs produced at Earth’s surface where a fault’s vertical offset is exposedG.A fold that is lowest in the middleH.The fracture along which blocks of rock move relative to each otherI.Changes in rock shape due to stresses that exceed the strength of the rock  Question 8Baja, California separates from Mexico  India collides with Eurasia to form the Himalayas The separation of North America and Africa Southeast Asia joins with Eurasia The separation of Africa, India, and Antarctica Question 9The past few years have been active ones for earthquakes as evidenced by the devastating quakes that occurred in Haiti, Chile and Japan. Are large earthquakes becoming more frequent, perhaps because they set off tremors that can cause further activity? Scientists are currently debating this issue.  And if large earthquakes become more frequent, will the U.S. be properly prepared to respond to one within its borders quickly and appropriately?  Do you think that large earthquakes are really increasing in number at present? Why or why not (please be specific in your answer to the question)? If they are, do you think the U.S. will be prepared and ready to cope with the challenges?  Your response should be at least 200 words in length
