Mixed Geography Trivia Questions

1. There are many geological features in the United States. One of the more famous is the San Andreas Fault. In which US state is this located?

From Quiz
FunTrivia Geography Mix: Vol 17

Answer: California

The San Andreas Fault is a right-lateral, strike-slip fault. Right-lateral means that the land opposite the fault moves right in relation to you. It extends from Punta Gorda near Cape Mendocino to the northern Gulf of California, a distance of over 800 miles. The fault acts as the plate boundary between the North American and Pacific plates, which are moving at approximately two inches per year. The San Andreas fault was responsible for the 1906 San Francisco earthquake (magnitude 7.8), among many others. Due to the potential damage from another similar-sized earthquake, there is much speculation on where and when the next "big one" will strike.

12. What small island nation in the South Pacific - a former Anglo-French colony once known as New Hebrides - often tops the list of countries most at risk of natural disasters?

From Quiz Mother Nature's Heavy Hand

Answer: Vanuatu

An initiative of the UN University Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS), the World Risk Index measures the natural disaster risk of most of the world's countries. In the 2021 report, the small South Pacific Republic of Vanuatu ranked first, as it did for at least the previous ten years. Being of volcanic origin, the Vanuatu archipelago is prone to earthquakes, and active volcanoes (some of them underwater) are a constant threat. However, the greatest danger for these islands comes from tropical cyclones. In March 2015, Vanuatu was hit by Category 5 Cyclone Pam, which caused widespread damage, cutting off communication, crippling infrastructure, and affecting the water supply; further damage was inflicted in April 2020 by Cyclone Harold, another Category 5 event. As can be expected, most of Oceania's island nations and territories are exposed to various kinds of natural disasters. In January 2022, Tonga, another high-risk country, was badly affected by the eruption of submarine volcano Hunga Tonga, while the Solomon Islands were hit by earthquakes in 2007 and 2013. In addition, most island countries in the Pacific and Indian Oceans are endangered by rising sea levels - Kiribati and the Maldives being two of the most vulnerable. New Caledonia, however, is not a sovereign nation, but an overseas territory of France.
