Presentation Transcript


1. Plate Tectonics Chapter 17

2. Continental Drift

3. Convection Currents

4. Plate Boundaries The following two slides show maps of the current major plate boundaries and their relative motions. You should be able to describe various landforms created by different plate movements.

7. Plate Boundaries Divergent Boundary – moving _____ Convergent Boundary – moving ________ Transform Fault Boundary – moving ________________________

13. Plate Boundaries Review Places where plates move apart are called _____________ boundaries. When continental plates diverge a ___________ is formed. When two oceanic plates converge what is created? _________________ The Appalachians formed mainly from continental plate collisions and therefore are a __________ mountain range. The force moving the plates is ____________ .
