Earth’s Interior

  • What is the yellow layer called?

  • What is the red layer called?

  • What is the brown layer called?

  • What is the white layer called?

  • What circulates within the red layer that is the force behind sea-floor spreading?


Sea floor spreading plate tectonics

Sea-Floor Spreading/Plate Tectonics

A

  • Using the diagram above, answer the following questions:

  • What type of boundary is shown above at ‘A’?

  • What process is occurring on either side of ‘A’?

  • What force is causing this process above to occur?

  • What ocean floor feature would be formed at letter ‘A’?


Sea floor spreading plate tectonics1

Sea-Floor Spreading/Plate Tectonics

A

Using the diagram above, answer the following questions:

  • What type of boundary is represented above?

  • What process is occurring at ‘B’?

  • What ocean floor feature is formed at ‘A’?

B


Sea floor spreading plate tectonics2

Sea-Floor Spreading/Plate Tectonics

Using the above diagram, answer the following:

  • What type of boundary is shown above?

  • What land feature is formed at this boundary?


Faults

Faults

  • What type of fault is this?

  • What type of stress is associated with this fault?


Faults1

Faults

  • What type of fault is this diagram representing?

  • What type of stress is associated with this fault?

  • At which boundary are you most likely to find this fault?

  • What type of stress would you find at a strike-slip fault?


Earthquakes

Earthquakes

  • Point ‘A’ is directly below the epicenter. What is this point called?

  • Data from at least how many cities needs to be collected in order to find the epicenter of an earthquake?

  • The first seismic wave to arrive at a seismograph is this wave?

A


Volcanoes

Volcanoes

  • Most volcanoes found on the Pacific Ring of Fire are located on __________ zones found at plate boundaries.

  • Hawaii is an example of a volcano found over a _______ in the middle of a plate.


Volcanoes1

Volcanoes

  • This volcano has a wide base, oozes lava, has quiet eruptions and is not very tall.

  • This volcano is tall and has a narrow base & has explosive eruptions

  • This volcano alternates between quiet & explosive eruptions and has alternating layers of lava and ash
