What types of stress are associated with convergent, divergent, and transform boundaries?

Strike is the bearing/azimuth where a layer is at the same elevation along the whole line. Dip is the angle that the layer dips down from the horizontal.

Trend is the bearing/azimuth that a lineation plunges down on. Plunge is the angle that the lineation plunges down from the horizontal.

Heave is a fault's relative motion horizontally. Throw is how much it moves vertically.

Rake is the angle between a lineation and the strike of the plane it is on. Plunge is the same as before.

Lol it's no problem at all

Give one plausible hypothesis for the formation of the Hawaiian Islands. Contrast with the formation of the Japanese Islands. What is the name for a group of islands?

The Hawaiian islands were formed by the island passing over a hotspot, while the Japanese islands were caused by the subduction of many plates. The islands are called island arc chains
