Presentation Transcript
slide2
The ______________ is made of partially melted, “plastic” rock material and plates “float” on it.
slide12
Some ________________ rocks contain iron-based magnetic minerals that “record” the direction of Earth’s magnetic field when the rock formed.
slide14
Mid-ocean ridges are broken into sections that are offset from each other by breaks called __________________ that are perpendicular (at right angles) to the ridge and are the source of earthquakes here.
slide16
In 1912, Alfred Wegener proposed the hypothesis of ______________________, which stated the continents have moved over time.
slide18
As you move out from the center of a mid-ocean ridge, what happens to the temperature of the rock?
slide21
Mid-Atlantic Ridge
  • East Pacific Rise
slide23
1. volcanoes
  • 2. earthquakes
  • 3. the formation of new crust (sea floor)
slide24
When Earth’s magnetic field “matches” up with the geographic poles is known as _______________ polarity
    • Ex. magnetic north & geographic north match up and magnetic south & geographic south match up
slide28
As you move out from the center of the mid-ocean ridge, what happens to the age of the rocks?

slide35
Away from each other (divergent plate boundary)
  • Towards each other (convergent plate boundary)
  • Slide past each other (transform plate boundary)
slide37
Marianas
  • Peru-Chile
  • Tonga
  • Aleutian
slide38
When Earth’s magnetic field does not “match” up with the geographic poles is known as _______________ polarity
    • Ex. magnetic north & geographic south match up and magnetic south & geographic north match up
slide42
What are 3 features/effects found at oceanic-oceanic convergent plate boundaries.
    • 1.
    • 2.
    • 3.
slide43
1. trenches
  • 2. volcanic island arcs (on the overriding plate)
  • 3. earthquakes (shallow to very deep)
slide49
1. shape of continents (“puzzle fit”)
  • 2. fossils
  • 3. distinctive rock formations
  • 4. climate change evidence (ex. coal deposits)
slide52
Magnetic properties & ages of igneous rocks on the ocean floor provide evidence for ___________
slide54
Two other causes of plate movement aside from convection cells in the asthenosphere (mantle) are ______________________ & _______________________
slide55
ridge push (rising magma pushing the plates outward),& slab pull (cooling, sinking material pulls the plates down).
slide57
Violent, explosive eruptions
  • b/c silica-rich magma which is thick & gooey (hard for gases to escape)
slide58
The center of the mid-ocean ridge shows the ________________ orientation (direction) of Earth’s magnetic field
slide63
The Mariana Islands
  • Aleutian Islands
slide68
A long chain of gently-erupting volcanic “mountains” on the ocean floor with a deep rift in the center is called a _____________________
slide73
Gentle, oozing eruptions
  • b/c magma is silica-poor, which makes it thin & runny (gases escape easily)
slide75
1. trenches (near the coast)
  • 2. volcanic mountains along the coast of the (overriding) continental plate
  • 3. earthquakes
slide80
_________________ is the theory that describes the formation, movements, and interactions of Earth’s lithospheric plates.
slide86
________________ in the asthenosphere (mantle) cause hot magma to rise and cool magma to sink, allowing for plate movement.
