Question
Four types of plate boundaries:

1. Divergent boundaries (define, in your own words)

Illustration: If the boxes below were being used to represent plate boundaries, draw arrows in the boxes below to illustrate the motion between divergent plate boundaries.




Examples: Find three specific geographical locations, or three generalized types of locations where a divergent plate boundary may occur. List and describe them here:

I.



II.





III.


2. Convergent boundaries (define, in your own words)

Illustration: If the boxes below were being used to represent plate boundaries, draw arrows in the boxes below to illustrate the motion between convergent plate boundaries.





Examples: Find three specific geographical locations, or three generalized type of
locations where a convergent plate boundary may occur. List and describe them here:

I.



II.





III.





3. Transform boundaries (define, in your own words)

Illustration: If the boxes below were being used to represent plate boundaries, draw arrows in the boxes below to illustrate the motion between transform plate boundaries.






Examples: Find three specific locations of a transform boundary where a divergent plate boundary may occur. List and describe them here:


I.



II.





III.





4. Describe the last type of plate-boundary
Answer the following discussion questions. Lab 6 Discussion.
1. Looking at the Earthquakes you have plotted on the map, do they appear to occur randomly over Earth’s surface, or in isolated or specific regions? Explain. (8 points)
2. Is there a recognizable pattern to where Earthquakes seem to occur? Describe this pattern. (7 points)
3. If such a pattern does exist, could you use it to determine where high-risk Earthquakes zones are located? Name three of these high-risk zones. (7 points)
4. From your map, can you determine if there is any connection between the Earthquakes and volcanoes appearing in the same location? Support your answer with an example from the map. (7 points)
5. Do you see any relationship between the Earthquakes, the volcanic activity, and the position of the tectonic plates? (7 points)
6. Looking at the different types of plate boundaries (divergent, convergent, and transform), what type of crustal activity (volcanoes, earthquakes) do you expect at each? Support your answer with specific examples. (7 points)
7. Are there any specific trends you notice with regard to the type of plate boundary, and the depth of the Earthquake, or Richtermagnitude? Give some specific examples to support your correlations. (7 points)
