In what tectonic settings do earthquakes occur? Explain why earthquakes occur in each of these settings.

In volcanoes due to energy released as magma moves upward
At transform faults as energy is released in elastic rebound
At subduction zones where energy is released as the two plates slide past each other.
Did I miss any?

Don't they also occur in divergent boundaries because of tensional energy?

Does anyone from Ohio want to talk about that dynamic test? Holyyy crap

Heard it was hell, how many questions were there?

what percentage of questions would I need to medal at a competitive place like socal? so far I'm averaging about 80%
also how do division c tests compare to division B? are they harder, easier, same?

I'm not from Ohio, but I definitely want to talk about it :)

So how was it? (in comparison to, say, the Westlake test, since that's the hardest one I've taken so far)

Wait, how did you get access to it? You didn't compete it it it seems from your signiture

Oh my gosh I thought it was insane. I don't think I've ever known so little on a dynamic test before. It was in stations, first of all, which I totally was not expecting, and we only had 4 minutes per station to answer like 10-ish short answer + extended response + multiple choice questions. Some stations had giant maps laid out with markers and we had to identify the volcanoes (or other geologic formations) and answer questions about them and there was a lot of gravity/magnetic anomaly math that I had no idea how to do. The test went deeper on anomalies than any test I've ever taken and was definitely harder than Westlake. I think if it wasn't for the time constraints with the station format, I could've done better though. My partner and I hardly used our cheatsheet because there was no time to look things up. I was not expecting to place at all walking out of that test (I felt so bad I almost started crying haha).

I remember seeing a test where they had a picture of the volcano itself and you needed to identify it. But this was in a 2010 Earthquakes and volcanoes test.
