    The Chile Earthquake of 2010 is one geological event that was associated with the Nazca/South American Plate Boundary. The magnitude 8.8 earthquake struck at 3:34 A.M. on February 27, 2010, with an epicenter 200 miles southwest of Santiago, and a focus 22 miles below the surface of the Pacific Ocean. A 300 to 375 mile stretch of the fault had ruptured, and caused the earthquake. This fracture was caused by the stress brought on by the convergence between the Nazca and the South American Plates, and the fracture had a secondary effect of lifting a portion of seabed in the Pacific Ocean, causing

    Geology ? Earthquakes I chose to do my assignment on earthquakes, because I have been through many growing up in California, and I have always wondered about them. There are many types of earthquakes. The most common are tectonic, which my paper will be about. There are also volcanic, collapse and explosion earthquakes. All earthquakes create waves that travel through the Earth's interior. An earthquake is the sudden shifting of the earth's natural means of releasing stress. When the shifting occurs, it creates vibrations, called seismic waves. The speed of seismic waves depends on th
