#5.2 plate tectonics (margins recap)

  1. 1. OK, so let’s recap... <ul><li>Plate Tectonics explains the mechanism behind the theory of Continental Drift </li></ul><ul><li>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 </li></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>circular movement of the molten material in the mantel causes new crust to be formed and old crust to be taken away </li></ul><ul><li>most changes in the earth’s crust take place at Plate Boundaries or Margins </li></ul><ul><li>these changes manifest themselves in the form of earthquakes, volcanoes, and mountain ranges </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Tectonic (lithospheric) Plates move relative to each other in one of 3 ways: </li></ul>#1 They CONVERGE - come together
  4. 4. <ul><li>Tectonic (lithospheric) Plates move relative to each other in one of 3 ways: </li></ul>#2 They DIVERGE - move apart
  5. 5. <ul><li>Tectonic (lithospheric) Plates move relative to each other in one of 3 ways: </li></ul>#3 They move past each other - TRANSFORM Boundaries
