How the crust is deformed

  • Isostatic adjustments can be cause by landslides. When you have heavy rain and a landslide occurs the land that has moved goes to a different part of the land. Where the landmass has moved the earths crust rises. Where the landmass that has moved to aftert the the landslide the earths crust under it sinks.
  • Compression is when two things are being pushed together with high pressure inbetween them. Tension is when you have two objects being pulled away from eachother with some restraint. Shearing is when there are two things going the opposite direction.
