Transcript

  • 1. Kenneth Carrillo & Vannessa Gonzales
  • 2.  Plates of the Earth make up the lithosphere.  A theory that explains the shift in plates and the direction in which they move.  Shift between 2cm to 10 cm a year
  • 3.  Help us understand the movement the Earth’s crust has made over many years.  The plates of the Earth include seven large pieces.  The African, South American, North American, Eurasian, Australian, Antarctic, and Pacific plates  There are also smaller plates that exist.
  • 4.  The point at which two plates meet is called a plate boundary.  There are three different types of boundaries:  Convergent Plate Boundary  Divergent Plate Boundary  Transform Plate Boundary
  • 5.  Divergent boundaries: plates move apart from each other.  Convergent boundaries: plates shift into each other.  Transform boundaries: plates move past each other laterally.
  • 6.  Plate tectonics shift the lithosphere in different directions.  Also earthquakes, eruptions of volcanoes, and tsunamis have taken place.  These dangerous disasters have killed thousands of people and animals.  Homes and belongings are also destroyed.
  • 7.  Knowledge scientists have of plate tectonics:  Size  Shape  Distribution of continents, mountain ranges, and ocean basins  Moving Earth plates create volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, and tsunamis.
  • 8.  Plate tectonics are a natural process that cannot be prevented or stopped.  We can only try to be prepared for the disasters that may come along with moving plates.  GPS (Global Positioning System) can track the movement of Earth plates.  Continue scientific study and monitoring
