1 What is the arrow pointing to?
Andes Mountains Aleutian Islands Mariana Islands North Pacific Ridge Japan

2 Iceland is found at what type of plate boundary?
Divergent Convergent Transform Strike-slip

3 What is found at this marker?
Mid-ocean ridge Transform fault Volcanic mountains Rift Prancing zebras

4 Martinique and other volcanic islands in the Eastern Caribbean were formed due to what?
Oceanic/oceanic convergence Oceanic/continental convergence Continental/Continental convergence Rifting

5 What body of water is this?
Lake Erie Lake Baikal Red Sea Lake Victoria Mediterranean Sea

6 The Appalachian Mountains were formed at what type of ancient boundary?
Oceanic/continental convergence Continental/continental convergence Oceanic/oceanic divergence Continental/continental divergence Transform

7 What is occurring at this marker?
Oceanic/oceanic divergence Oceanic/oceanic convergence Subduction Recycling of oceanic crust

8 Which statement is accurate about this location?
Folded mountains Rifting Frequent shallow earthquakes Volcanic mountains

9 What mountain range is found here?
Andes Cascades Himalayas Appalachians Alps

10 What are we looking at? Caldera Mid-ocean ridge Flood Plain Folded mountain Trench

11 What mountain range is found here?
Andes Rockies Appalachians Alps Himalayas

12 What is found here? San Andreas Fault Alpine Fault Marianas Trench Andes Mountains Aleutian Trench

13 The deepest trench in the world is found here. What is its name?
Aleutian Trench Marianas Trench Peru-Chile Trench Tonga Trench

14 In what layer are convection currents found?
Inner core Outer core Mantle Crust

15 How fast do convection currents move?
2-10 mm per year 2-10 cm per year 2-10 m per year 2-10 km per year

16 What process would have been responsible for the splitting of Pangaea?
Subduction Oceanic/oceanic convergence Rifting and sea floor spreading Transform faults

17 What plate subducted to form the Peru-Chile Trench?
Pacific Plate South America Plate North American Plate Nazca Plate African Plate

18 What type of boundary is found between the African and North American plates?
Divergent Convergent Transform

19 What would you expect to find all around the Philippine Plate?
Rifts Trenches Folded mountains Transform faults Mid-ocean ridges

20 What term describes when one plate goes under another plate, as in the diagram below?
Divergent boundary Transform boundary Subduction zone Mid-ocean ridge Rifting

21 What type of crust always goes “down” into the mantle? Why?
Oceanic crust because it’s denser Oceanic crust because it’s less dense Continental crust because it’s denser Continental crust because it’s less dense

22 What two features should you expect to find whenever one plate goes under another plate?
Volcanoes and mid-ocean ridges Trenches and mid-ocean ridges Mid-ocean ridges and abyssal plains Volcanoes and a trench

23 Which of the following would NOT apply to a mid-ocean ridge?
Divergent boundary Crust is destroyed New crust is made Site of sea-floor spreading

24 You would expect to find the youngest oceanic crust…
Near mid-ocean ridges Farther away from mid-ocean ridges Near subduction zones Next to beaches

25 Which of the following is found along a transform boundary?
Andes Mountains Himalaya Mountains San Andreas Fault Mid-Atlantic Ridge

26 Which of the following occurs at a transform boundary?
Fracturing of the crust Formation of new crust Recycling of crust Subduction

27 Which of the following is NOT being depicted in the diagram?
Subduction zone Rifting Seafloor spreading Magnetic patterns on the ocean floor

28 What type of boundary exists between the Indian Plate and the Eurasian plate?
Divergent Convergent Transform Not enough info

29 What volcano formed on the overriding plate of the Java Trench?
Mt. Pinatubo Krakatoa Mt. St. Helens Mt. Mayon

30 What type of boundary is responsible for creating the Pacific Ring of Fire?
Divergent Convergent Transform An equal combination of all three types of boundaries

31 Which statement is accurate about the Himalayan Mountains?
They are folded mountains. They are volcanic mountains. They formed due to rifting. They formed as a result of subduction. They are decreasing in elevation each year due to erosion.

32 What is the only boundary where crust is neither created nor destroyed?
Convergent Divergent Transform

33 The Red Sea in Africa will eventually become ____________________.
An ocean A folded mountain A trench A great plain

34 Tsunamis are typically generated along what type of boundary?
Convergent Divergent Transform

35 All of the following support the theory of sea floor spreading EXCEPT…
Discovery of a 40,000 mile long mid-ocean ridge system A “Ring of Fire” surrounding the Pacific Ocean Analysis of the age of ocean crust Magnetic patterns on the ocean floor

36 This map would best serve as evidence for which of the following theories?
Plate Tectonics Continental Drift Seafloor Spreading Convection Currents

37 Alfred Wegener died in the 1930’s before his idea of continental drift was accepted by the global scientific community. Which of the following allowed his idea to eventually become a theory? Identification of the Pacific Ring of Fire Discovery of trenches Development of the theory of sea floor spreading Identifying a pattern of earthquakes around the world

38 Which of the following theories states that large pieces of lithosphere are moving at different speeds and in different directions all over the surface of the Earth? Plate Tectonics Continental Drift Seafloor Spreading
