Welcome to Year 9 Geography: Tectonic Hazards libguide!

   Tectonic plates are large plates of rock that make up the foundation of the Earth's crust and the shape of the continents. Tectonic hazards, for example, earthquakes, volcanoes and tsunamis, are events caused by the tectonic plates below the earth's crust sliding past  each other, moving against each other, or moving apart. You can click the following images to access the individual topics, revisions and ways to manage the hazards!
