  2. 2. Year 9 Geography Revision St Ivo School Geography Department www.geobytes.org.uk Structure Of The Earth
  3. 3. Year 9 Geography Revision St Ivo School Geography Department www.geobytes.org.uk
  4. 4. Year 9 Geography Revision St Ivo School Geography Department www.geobytes.org.uk Constructive Plate Boundary At a constructive plate boundary, two plates move apart. As the two plates move apart, magma rises up to fill the gap. This causes volcanoes at this type of boundary. However, since the magma can escape easily at the surface the volcano does not erupt with much force. E.g. Mid-Atlantic Ridge.
  5. 5. Year 9 Geography Revision St Ivo School Geography Department www.geobytes.org.uk A destructive plate boundary is found where a continental plate meets an oceanic plate. The oceanic plate subducts (sinks) under the continental plate because it is denser. Friction melts the plates. This melted plate is now hot, magma. If it reaches the surface, the liquid rock forms a volcano. E.g. Nazca and South American Plate Destructive Plate Boundary
  6. 6. Year 9 Geography Revision St Ivo School Geography Department www.geobytes.org.uk Conservative plate boundaries exist where two plates slide past each. No volcanoes are found along these plate boundaries, but earthquakes do occur. E.g. San Andreas Fault, San Francisco Conservative Boundary
  7. 7. Year 9 Geography Revision St Ivo School Geography Department www.geobytes.org.uk Collision boundaries occur when 2 continental plates move together. This causes the material between them to buckle and rise up, forming fold mountains. E.g. Himalayas Collision Boundary
  8. 8. Year 9 Geography Revision St Ivo School Geography Department www.geobytes.org.uk STRUCTURE OF A VOLCANO Crater Magma Chamber Vent Secondary Cone Lava Flow Steam, Ash, Gas Volcanic Bombs

  14. 14. Year 9 Geography Revision St Ivo School Geography Department www.geobytes.org.uk • Montserrat is found in the Caribbean and is part of the Leeward Islands. • It is part of a island arc and was formed by volcanic eruptions. North American Plate Montserrat Case Study
  15. 15. Year 9 Geography Revision St Ivo School Geography Department www.geobytes.org.uk After 2 years of rumbling a huge eruption occurred on July 25 1997. In July 1995 the dormant volcano of Soufriére Hills started to rumble back to life. Montserrat is a Caribbean island famous for beautiful beaches and sea. Background Information
  16. 16. Year 9 Geography Revision St Ivo School Geography Department www.geobytes.org.uk Underneath Montserrat the North American plate is slowly being forced under the Caribbean plate. The lava was thick and it built up at the top of the volcano in a dome until it collapsed. The Soufrière Hills Volcano produces a thick sticky lava. Montserrat is situated on a destructive plate boundary. Causes of the Eruption
  17. 17. Year 9 Geography Revision St Ivo School Geography Department www.geobytes.org.uk Airport was evacuated and closed. A total of at least 4 square kilometres of land was covered by the pyroclastic flows and surges. People evacuated to the north of the island. Capital City (Plymouth) almost totally destroyed and evacuated. 19 people killed and many more injured. Destroyed between 100 -150 houses. About 8000 residents left the island to live somewhere safer. Rich farmland destroyed by mudflows and covered by layers of ash. The southern part of the island is off limits and people are fined if they are found there. Effects of the Eruption
