Across
3.the solid, dense center of the Earth
4.a break in the Earth's crust along which two blocks of the crust slide relative to one another due to tectonic forces
10.the boundary between two tectonic plates that are sliding past each other horizontally
11.literally, the "middle sphere"-strong, lower part of the mantle between the asthenosphere and the outer core
15.the central, spherical part of the Earth below the mantle
16.the amount of force per unit area that is put on a given material
17.the thin, outermost layer of the Earth, or the uppermost part of the lithosphere
18.the layer of the Earth between the crust and the core
19.the region where an oceanic plate sinks down into the asthenosphere at a convergent boundary, usually between continental and oceanic plates
20.a piece of the lithosphere that moves around on top of the asthenosphere
Down
1.the boundary between two tentonic plates that are moving away from each other
2.the bending of rock layers due to stress in the Earth's crust
5.the outermost, rigid layer of the Earth that consists of the crust and the rigid upper part of the mantle
6.a fault in which the hanging wall moves down relative to the footwall
7.a fault in which the two fault blocks move past each other horizontally
8.the type of stress that occurs when forces act to stretch an object
9.the theory that continents can drift apart from one another and have done so in the past
12.a fault in which the hanging wall moves up relative the footwall
13.the soft layer of the mantle on which pieces of the lithosphere move
14.the liquid layer of the Earth's core that lies beneath the mantle and surrounds the inner core
