AEJEE Volcanoes and Plate Boundaries

1,057 views

Published on

Our class investigated the pattern of volcanoes along the plate boundaries. We wanted to see if certain types of volcanoes were associated with certain types of plate boundaries. Teams investigated different areas of the world. Using AEJEE and Google Earth, we determined that convergent plate boundaries have composite volcanoes and divergent plate boundaries have shield volcanoes and sea floor pillow lavas.

  6. 6. TEAM WORK• Randomly teams of three students will be given a specific area of the world that has a lot of volcanic activity.• It is the team’s responsibility to do the following: – ‘code’ the volcanoes and screen capture their area – Using Google Earth, map out the boundary and screen capture their area – Determine the type of plate boundary – Determine the main type of volcanic activity at this location
  7. 7. PRESENTATION• Create powerpoint slides that show the screen capture from AEJEE and Google Earth• Include a graphic that illustrates an example of this type of volcano from this area• As a class, create one sentence that shows the relationship between that specific plate boundary and the main type of volcanic eruption

  67. 67. CLASS FINDINGS• DIVERGENT PLATE BOUNDARIES are characterized by pillow lavas and shield volcanoes. This is because the magma is coming from the mantle and is low in silica. This produces short, broad volcanoes with quiet eruptions.
  68. 68. • CONVERGENT BOUNDARIES produce very explosive volcanic eruptions characterized by composite volcanoes such as Mt. Fuji and Mt. St. Helens. These volcanoes are the result of the subducting plate being melted and coming back to the surface as a composite volcanic eruption either in islands or mountains.
