19 Two plates pushing into each other.
20 A fault where rock is displaced in a horizontal direction.
21 an idealized cycle of processes undergone by rocks in the earth's crust, involving igneous intrusion, uplift, erosion, transportation, deposition as sedimentary rock, metamorphism, remelting, and further igneous intrusion.

27 When plates slide past each other,
33 A type of map characterized by large-scale detail and quantitative representation of relief, usually using contour lines, but historically using a variety of methods.
34 A mountain with a vent that lava comes out of.
35 P-waves are a type of elastic wave, and are one of the two main types of elastic body waves, called seismic waves in seismology, that travel through a continuum and are the first waves from an earthquake to arrive at a seismograph.

4 The waves that arrive behind P waves on seismograms,
5 An underwater mountain range formed by plate tectonics.
6 he movement caused within a fluid by the tendency of hotter and therefore less dense material to rise, and colder, denser material to sink under the influence of gravity, which consequently results in transfer of heat.
7 The process that sand and soil go through to get added to a land mass.
8 The hanging wall rises over the foot wall.
9 The part of the Earth consisting of the crust and mantle.
