Along plate boundaries exists most of the Earth’s volcanoes and…
What is earthquakes?
The most famous plate boundary
What is the Ring of Fire?
The type of boundary where plates push together
The type of boundary where plates slide together What is a convergent fault?
The type of plate where boundaries push apart
What is a divergent fault?
The type of fault where the plates slide side-by-side
What is a transform fault?
The imaginary lines that travel vertically on a map and tell us the East or West direction of a place on Earth.
What is longitude?
The imaginary lines that travel horizontally on a map and tell us the North or South direction of a place on Earth.
What is latitude?
The line of latitude that crosses through countries such as Congo, Indonesia, and Ecuador
What is the Equator?
The Hawaiian Islands were formed from volcanoes that occurred at a
What is a hot spot?
The shock waves that are sent out when an earthquake occurs
What are seismic waves?
The Earth’s Center made up of solid iron
What is the inner core?
The second layer of the Earth made up of liquid iron
What is the outer core?
The third layer of the Earth made up of liquid rock under tremendous heat and pressure.
What is the Mantle?
The layer of the Earth that flows on molten rock
What is the Crust?
The name of the Earth’s first continent
What is Pangaea?
Rocky Mountains, BC, Canada
Rocky Mountains What is convergent?
Mid-Atlantic Rift Thingvellir, Iceland
Mid-Atlantic Rift What is a Divergent?
San Andreas Fault, California
What is transform?
What is convergent?
Great Rift Valley
What is divergent?
The type of eruption that occurred at Mt St Helens in 1980
What is a lateral eruption?
This North American Volcano
What is Mt. St. Helens?
This Asian City after an earthquake
What is Kobe, Japan?
This city was struck by major earthquakes in 1906 and during the 1989 World Series.
What is San Francisco?
These islands were formed from volcanoes in the Pacific Ocean
What are the Hawaiian Islands?
Plate Tectonics What evidence do scientists have to support the fact that the Earth’s crust is continuously moving?
Changes to Earth’s Surface
The Theory of Plate Tectonics
Composition of the Earth
So what has caused the continents to drift ??
Plate Tectonic Theory states the outermost layer of Earth is composed of 9 to 15 large plates and numerous small ones Most plates are located on the ocean.
PLATE TECTONICS. QUICK REVIEW: EARTH’S STRUCTURE CRUST MANTLE CORE.
The Dynamic Earth Environmental Science Ms. Moore 1/28/13.
Plate Tectonics. The Earth’s Structure Crust Mantle Outer Core Inner Core Lithosphere.
Structure of the Earth Crust = solid outermost layer Mantle = middle layer Core = inner layer outer core = liquid inner core = solid.
Earth’s Interior Section 1 Layers of the Earth Section 2
The asthenosphere consists of solid rock that is flowing. But it’s not all flowing in the same direction.
Plate Tectonics. Earth’s Interior Earth is made of layers Crust Upper Mantle (asthenosphere ) Mantle Outer Core Inner Core Scientists discovered these.
(c) McGraw Hill Ryerson Features of Plate Tectonics Earth is over 1200 km thick and has four distinct layers. These layers are the crust, mantle.
Volcanoes Earth and Space Science. How many are there? About 60 of the ~550 known active volcanoes erupt each year There are many more volcanoes underwater.
