To belch
A large-scale crack in the earth's lithosphere, produced by the tensional forces of two plates (tectonic plates) or two slide masses (two sides of a Hawaiian volcano) collapsing in different directions More or less linear over dozens to hundreds of km, a rift zone usually has a narrow valley (up to a few km wide) at its summit Rift zones are associated with basaltic volcanism, and have associated shallow earthquakes which give a real-time record of the rifting activity While most rifts are underwater, along the mid-ocean spreading plate boundaries, some are exposed at the surface: Iceland, the Baikal Rift (Siberia), and the great African Rift Valley The rift zone seen in the USGS glossary, along the summit of Mauna Loa, is so full of erupted lavas that there is no topographic depression, but a slight ridge
Rift Valley fever
A mosquito-borne, acute, febrile, viral disease of humans and animals, caused by an RNA virus of the genus Phlebovirus, which occurs in northern and eastern Africa
rift valley
A mid-oceanic ridge system with central valleys
rift valley
A graben structure between two tectonic plates which are opening relative to each other
rift zone
A large area of the earth in which plates of the earth's crust are moving away from each other, forming an extensive system of fractures and faults
rift apart
crack, cleave, split open
rift in the nation

rift valley
1 A valley of regional extent formed by block faulting in which tensional stresses tend to pull the crust apart Synonymous with graben 2 The down-dropped block along divergent plate margins
rift valley
A deep fracture or break, about 25-50 km (15-30 miles) wide, in the earth's crust, creating an elongated valley bounded by two or more faults. a valley with very steep sides, formed by the cracking and moving of the Earth's surface. Elongated trough formed by the subsidence of a segment of the Earth's crust between dip-slip, or normal, faults. Rift valleys are usually narrow and long and have a relatively flat floor. The sides drop away steeply in steps and terraces. Rift valleys are found on the continents and along the crests of oceanic ridges. They occur where two plates that make up the Earth's surface are separating (see plate tectonics). Submarine rift valleys are usually centres of seafloor spreading, where magma wells up from the mantle. The most extensive continental rift valleys are those of the East African Rift System; other notable examples include Russia's Baikal Rift Valley and Germany's Rhine Rift Valley
rift valley
a huge, trough-shaped valley created by faulting
rift valley
A valley that has developed along a tectonic rift
rift valley
a fault trough formed through tension The Alpine Valley is the premier example
rift valley
valley formed by sinking of land between two faults
rift valley
An elongated valley formed by the depression of a block of the planet's crust between two faults or groups of faults of approximately parallel strike
rift valley
A valley formed by a fault or crack in the earth's surface, generally of tensional origin
rift valley
a valley with steep sides; formed by a rift in the earth's crust
rift valley fever
an infection common in Africa caused by a bunyavirus; transmitted by mosquitoes or by handling infected animals
Great Rift Valley
A geologic depression of southwest Asia and eastern Africa extending from the Jordan River valley to Mozambique. The region is marked by a series of faults caused by volcanic action. the Great Rift Valley a very deep, wide valley which is 3000 miles long and runs across most of East Africa and into southwest Asia. v. or Rift Valley or East African Rift System Rift system (see rift valley), extending from Jordan in the Middle East south to Mozambique in southern Africa. It is some 4,000 mi (6,400 km) long and averages 30-40 mi (48-64 km) wide. The rift has been forming for some 30 million years, as Africa and the Arabian Peninsula separate, and has produced such massifs as Kilimanjaro and Mount Kenya. The system's main branch, the Eastern Rift Valley, is occupied in the north by the Jordan River, the Dead Sea, and the Gulf of Aqaba. It continues south along the Red Sea to several lakes in Kenya. Less obvious in Tanzania, with its eastern rim eroded, it continues south to the Indian Ocean near Beira, Mozam. The western branch of the system, the Western Rift Valley, extends north from the northern end of Lake Malawi in an arc that includes lakes Rukwa, Tanganyika, Kivu, Edward, and Albert
Great Rift Valley
{i} geological depression in southwest Asia and eastern Africa that stretches from northern Syria along the valley of the Jordan River to Mozambique
Syrian-African rift
cleft in the earth formed between the two land masses of Asia and Africa
geological rift

great rift valley
( geology) a depression in southwestern Asia and eastern Africa; extends from the valley of the Jordan River to Mozambique; marked by geological faults
heal a rift
mend a break in a relationship
mend the rift
sew the tear, patch together the torn parts

past of rift
rifting
the splitting apart of the earth's crust when it is stretched by tectonic activity Results in the downfaulting of blocks of crust and creation of flat-floored valleys or troughs known as rift valleys (e g , Virginia's Triassic lowlands)
rifting
present participle of rift
rifting
- a breaking apart, divergence of continents along a common boundary
rifting

rifting
The tearing apart of a plate to form a depression in the Earth's crust and often eventually separating the plate into two or more smaller plates
rifting
The splitting of a continent, a feature seen in the East African Rift Valley today Rifting often results in the generation of large volumes due to the effect of decompression of underlying rocks which are close to their melting temperatures
rifting
a breach or split between two bodies due to rising hot spot activity within the mantle Continuous activity thins the lithospheric plate, causes normal and reverse dip-slip faulting and eventually separates the plate
