Plate Tectonics 1-20-15 6th
Why do you think people didn`t belive the continental drift theory when Wagner first explained it?
Who were the 2 scientists that brought forth supporting evidence to Wagners theory and what was their evidence?
What are the three different types of plate boundaries
what types of movement can occur between plates and what features can form from this movement
the forms are mountains volcanoes earthquakes
give a specific example of a location on earth where each type of plate boundary is present
Convergent boundaries: the Indian and Eurasian plates.
Transform boundaries: the Pacific Plate and the North American Plate
what do plate tectonics and ocean trenches have in common
how old are the rocks off th east coast of nortrh americain relation to the rocks right along the mid atlantic ridge
why do you think this is the case
because all the continents where together and they had moved from each other
what is a convection current and how does it work
what are 7 major plate boundaries
what are two bad events that can happenas a direct resultof plate tectonics
how did plate tectonics cause these events
by rubbing against each other
