Transcript

  • 1. OK, so let’s recap...
    • Plate Tectonics explains the mechanism behind the theory of Continental Drift
    • the Inner Core, a white hot, solid ball of nickel and iron, provides the energy needed to drive the movement of lithospheric plates on the surface of the earth
  • 2.
    • circular movement of the molten material in the mantel causes new crust to be formed and old crust to be taken away
    • most changes in the earth’s crust take place at Plate Boundaries or Margins
    • these changes manifest themselves in the form of earthquakes, volcanoes, and mountain ranges
  • 3.
    • Tectonic (lithospheric) Plates move relative to each other in one of 3 ways:
    #1 They CONVERGE - come together
  • 4.
    • Tectonic (lithospheric) Plates move relative to each other in one of 3 ways:
    #2 They DIVERGE - move apart
  • 5.
    • Tectonic (lithospheric) Plates move relative to each other in one of 3 ways:
    #3 They move past each other - TRANSFORM Boundaries
