  1. 1. Announcements - 10th March REC cancelled - 17th March Tues 10 – 12 pm REC - Venue: Xinnovate - Topic: Convergent Plate Boundary
  2. 2. Transform plate boundaries • Plates slide past each other. • As they do so, tremendous stress builds up. • This stress is eventually released, often as a violent earthquake.
  3. 3. Transform plate boundaries E.g. San Andreas Fault, United States of America & North Anatolian Fault, Turkey
  4. 4. E.g. San Andreas Fault, USA
  5. 5. San Andreas Fault, United States of America • In 1906, an earthquake occurred in San Francisco, southern California between the Pacific Plate and the North American Plate. – This caused several hundred kilometres of North American Plate to move an average of 2.5 m, – and at one point almost 7 m all in less than 1 minute.
  6. 6. E.g. North Anatolian Fault, Turkey How would the plate movement affect the two cities shown in time to come?
  7. 7. P65 • Describe the appearance of the fault and its surround landscape. [4] • Explain how an earthquake may occur at this type of boundary. [4]
  8. 8. Describe the appearance of the fault and its surrounding landscape. [4] Appearance (any 2 points) •Long/linear •Narrow •Deep valley •Fault line offsets to the right •Presence of river within the fault Surrounding landscape (any 2 points) •Hills are dissected •Surrounding lands are highland •Presence of some vegetation Explain how an earthquake may occur at this type of plate boundary. [4] • The 2 plates are sliding past each other in opposite direction. • There is a lot of friction and the movement is not smooth. • Stress build up • Over time, shock is suddenly released resulting in earthquakes.
