Plate tectonics 6.E 2.2 Kim Lachler 2011
Plate tectonics theory The Earth's crust is made up of plates. These plates have moved throughout Earth's history. – Used to explain the formation of Mountains Volcanoes Earthquakes Oceans basins
Pangaea Was when all the continents where together 2000 years ago. Different theories exist as to why they spread.
Types of Boundary Movements 1) Divergent - moves apart - when theyhappen in the ocean –ocean basins are formed.
Types of Boundary Movements 2) Convergent - moves together Where ocean meets land – can form volcanoes Where land meets land – can form mountains
Types of Boundary Movements 3) Transform - slide past - most (but not all) are in ocean basins
Movement Each plate moves as an individual unit – Cities located on the same plate stay the same distance apart. – Cities located on different plates distances change.

Plate Tectonics The theory of plate tectonics is based on the theory that plate tectonics explain the formation, movement, and subduction of Earth’s plates.

Plate Tectonics. Plate tectonics describes the motion of Earth’s plates. Movement of plates can cause earthquakes!
The theory of plate tectonics explains the formation, movements, and subduction of the earth’s plates. ◦ What is a plate? A section of lithosphere.
PLATE TECTONICS By: Innovative Teacher. Many years ago, our continents were one big land mass known as Pangaea. Alfred Wegener, a German Scientist, proposed.
Tectonic Plates Large segments of the outer layer of Earth (lithosphere) which drift and float on the asthenosphere.
