    Earthquakes
    Earthquakes are caused when two plates are ripped apart, bump into each other, or dragged together. Basically any interaction between two plates.Of course there are also small earthquakes that happen often and go unoticed. But there a big earthquakes that can leave a whole country a wreck. It's also known that earthquakes can trigger Tsunamis aswell. Earthquakes can kill many people and destruct diffrent places. There is a scale that measures from 0-10 scale of how powerful a earthquake is. This scale is known as the Richter scale. Of course there are also small earthquakes that happen often and go unoticed. But there a big earthquakes that can leave a whole country a wreck.

    the saffir-simpson scale was made and invented by bob simpson and herbert saffir. this scale is only for the use of hurricanes. other tropical storms use different scales.

    HOW ARE TSUNAMI SIZES MEASURED?
    Tsunamis are measured using intensity scales. People all over the world have their own scales, but the globally used scale is the
    ...
    intensity scale.
    TSUNAMI CAUSES
    Tsunamis aren't only caused by earthquakes. Strong disturbances both above and below the water are able to cause Tsuanmi's. Meteorites can hit water and cause large waves. Volcanic eruptions can cause tsunamis too. When volcaoes are about to blow, you can see them shaking like crazy. When they erupt, the force sends energy down the volcanoe and into the ground, where it can cause earthquakes. If the energy is sent in way where it reaches a body of water, a tsunami starts.
    IMAN :)
    How do tsunamis happen? They happen when the plates underneath are shifting. It happens when the plates are ripped apart, dragged together, and rubbed alongside each other. Energy is released from the epicenter, and a gigantic wave is formed.

    Climate graphs are graphs/ charts that show the temepratures, and percipitation through the year in one certain country or place. A climate graph includes two parts. A line graph that describes tempatures throughout the year in celcius or degrees and a bar graph that shows percipitation that has gathered through the diffrent months in mm.
    Here is a guide on how to draw a climate graph.
