Abstract

The earth’s crust is composed of a series of large plates floating on the underlying molten magma. These plates are constantly shifting and consequently they bump into one another and often one will ride up on top of another near their edges. The interfaces between the plates form fault lines in the earth and the resulting pressures that build up along the interfaces eventually release to form earth-quakes.
