QuestionAnswer
Fold Mountain- formation sedimentary rock, over time, is formed due to compression on the ocean beds. Collision plate boundary- the sediments between forced to collide and crumple upwards.
Continental vs. Oceanic plates Lighter,Less Denser,Older,Granite,Light(colour) Heavier,More dense,Younger,Basalt,Darker
Earthquake eg. Haiti & Japan,Kobe
Shield vs. Composite volcanoes Low-wide based cone,Gentle slopes, V.runny lava+thin,non violent eruptions,Frequent. Steep sides,Explosive,Less frequent,alternative layers of ash+lava.
Constructive Plate Boundary Plates move away from oneanother. Magma rises through gap, cools and creates new rock. Occurs again, layers solidify + build uo to form volcanoes.
Fold Mountain- Case Study Andes: Along w.coast of S/America next to the pacific ocean. *Mining,Farming,HEP, Tourism
Fold Mountain eg Andes & Himalyas
Destructive Plate Boundary Plates move towards eachother. Denser oceanic dives under continental. oceanic melts in subduction zone,due to friction pressure builds then is releases by an eruption of magma through crack in crust.
