1 WG.3.B Describe the physical processes that affect the environments of regions, INCLUDING weather, tectonic forces, erosion, and soilbuilding processes [READINESS STANDARD] YSLETA INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT SOCIAL STUDIES INSTRUCTIONAL TEAM

2 How many “regions” do you see? Coastal Plains Interior Lowlands Great Plains Basin and Ridge Appalachian Mountains Rocky Mountains Coastal Ridge

3 Coastal Plains Interior Lowlands Great Plains Basin and Ridge Appalachian Mountains Rocky Mountains Coastal Ridge What stands out on this map?

4 Tectonic Forces EarthquakeTsunami VolcanoSpreadingBuilding LithosphereSubductionMountain

5 THE HESS CONVECTION CURRENT ‘SLAB-PULL’- ‘RIDGE PUSH’ MODEL Continents pushed apart by ‘Ridge-Push’Subduction of oceanic Crust by ‘Slab Pull’ Magma Ridge-Push by diverging convection currents Subduction by converging convection currents Continental Crust pulled over the Oceanic Crust LITHOSPHERE Describe what you see in the diagram (Tectonic means “building”. The earth is “building” itself by building its lithosphere)

7 WATER WIND SOIL GRAVITY DESCRIBE WHAT’S HAPPENING TO THE LAND

9 “Orographic” Effect -- Greek: Oro-- Hill, Graphic-- Write Hill writing. The hill writes its effect on the weather.

10 Coastal Plains Interior Lowlands Great Plains Basin and Ridge Appalachian Mountains Rocky Mountains Coastal Ridge

11 Tectonic plate movement may be caused by all of the following EXCEPT— A slab pull B ridge push C convection D magnetism All of the following are tectonic forces that shape the surface of the earth EXCEPT— A subduction B spreading C transformation D transpiration

12 The Middle East consists of mountains, upland plateaus and valleys. These physical features are the result of: A erosion B tectonic forces C deposition D weathering

13 Let’s look again at “Tectonic Forces” THE HESS CONVECTION CURRENT ‘SLAB-PULL’- ‘RIDGE PUSH’ MODEL Continents pushed apart by ‘Ridge-Push’Subduction of oceanic Crust by ‘Slab Pull’ Magm a Ridge-Push by diverging convection currents Subduction by converging convection currents Continental Crust pulled over the Oceanic Crust LITHOSPHERE (Tectonic means “building”. The earth is “building” itself by building its lithosphere.)

14 Because of its location along the "Ring of Fire," Japan is particularly susceptible to which of the following hazards? F earthquakes and volcanoes G floodings and droughts H monsoons and floodings J earthquakes and tornados The Pacific Islands in the Ring of Fire are affected by all of the following except — A volcanoes B earthquakes C tsunamis D tornadoes

15 WG.3.B Describe the physical processes that affect the environments of regions, INCLUDING weather, tectonic forces, erosion, and soilbuilding processes. How do physical forces effect a region? (Japan)
