  3. 3. Convection And the Mantle Sea Floor Spreading Plate-Tectonics 10 Point 20 Points 30 Points 40 Points 50 Points 10 Point 10 Point 10 Point 10 Point 20 Points 20 Points 20 Points 20 Points 30 Points 40 Points 50 Points 30 Points 30 Points 30 Points 40 Points 40 Points 40 Points 50 Points 50 Points 50 Points Drifting Continents Earth’s Interior
  4. 4. Holes drilled several kilometers into Earth’s crust provide direct evidence about Earth’s interior in the form of
  5. 5. Rock Samples
  6. 6. Geologists obtain indirect evidence about Earth’s interior by
  7. 7. Recording and Studying Seismic waves
  8. 8. What is the correct order (starting from the surface) of Earth’s layers?
  9. 9. crust, mantle, outer core, inner core
  10. 10. Earth’s inner core is what in structure?
  11. 11. a dense ball of solid metal.
  12. 12. Name This Layer And the sub layers
  13. 13. Mantle: Lithosphere, Asthenosphere, Lower Mantle
  14. 14. When you touch a hot pot or pan, energy moves from the pot to your hand. This is called
  15. 15. Heat transfer
  16. 16. The transfer of energy through empty space is called
  17. 17. Radiation
  18. 18. Heat transfer within a fluid takes place by
  19. 19. Convection Currents
  20. 20. When the heat source is removed from a fluid, convection currents in the fluid will
  21. 21. Eventually Stop
  22. 22. Earth’s magnetic field results from movements in the
  23. 23. Outer Core
  24. 24. According to Wegener’s hypothesis of continental drift,
  25. 25. the continents were once joined together in a single landmass.
  26. 26. What is Pangaea?
  27. 27. the name of the supercontinent that existed millions of years ago
  28. 28. Which type of evidences were used by Alfred Wegener to support his continental drift hypothesis?
  29. 29. Landforms, Fossils, Climate
  30. 30. Most geologists rejected Alfred Wegener’s idea of continental drift because
  31. 31. Wegener could not identify a force that could move the continents.
  32. 32. Any trace of an ancient organism that has been preserved in rock is called a
  33. 33. Fossil
  34. 34. What technology did scientists use in the mid-1900s to map the mid-ocean ridge?
  35. 35. Sonar
  36. 36. In sea-floor spreading, molten material rises from the mantle and erupts
  37. 37. Along Mid-Ocean Ridges
  38. 38. How did scientists discover that rocks farther away from the mid-ocean ridge were older than those near it?
  39. 39. by determining the age of rock samples obtained by drilling on the sea floor
  40. 40. What did scientists in a submersible see when they observed the mid-ocean ridge?
  41. 41. rocks formed by the rapid hardening of molten material
  42. 42. Most geologists think that the movement of Earth’s plates is caused by
  43. 43. Convection Currents in the Mantle
  44. 44. The geological theory that states that pieces of Earth’s lithosphere are in constant, slow motion is the theory of
  45. 45. Plate-Tectonics
  46. 46. A place where two plates slip past each other, moving in opposite directions, is known as a
  47. 47. Transform Boundary
  48. 48. A rift valley forms at a
  49. 49. Divergent Plate Boundary
  50. 50. A collision between two pieces of continental crust at a converging boundary produces a
  51. 51. Mountain Range
  52. 52. The place where two plates come together is known as a
  53. 53. Convergent Boundary
  54. 54. Make your wager
  55. 55. What is happening at Z?
  56. 56. The edge of plate B is plunging beneath plate C and melting in the mantle.
