QuestionAnswer
what type of boundary occurs at the continental-continental collision convergent
what geologic feature forms at a continental-continental collision mountian
going to the surface to the center of the earth, list the layers in order lithosphere, asthenosphere, mesosphere, outer core, inner core
tectonic plates are large pieces of lithosphere that float on top of the asthenoshere
who was Alfred wegener German scientist who dicovered the continental drift
tell me 2 ways the theory of continental drift was supported age of rocks, magnetic reversal, found the same fossils
t or f oceanic crust is younger at a ridge and older near the trench true
where do convection currents take place asthenosphere
what do scientist think move the tectonic plates convection currents
what two types of plate collision form mountain ranges continental and oceanic
why do you think fossils are sometimes found on the top of mountians there was on ocean there
how does the mid ocean ridge form the divergent boundaries move apart and the lava shoots out
what are Pangaea and panthalassa land and ocean
what do tectonic plates do at a divergent boundary earthquakes
what type of volcano is the worse strato
