02/26/2020 2 The Beginning Of Time Time when the earth was born - Precambrian Era. During this time the continents were joined together in one huge island called Pangea 02/26/2020
3 Alfred Wegener 1880 1930 In 1910, Noticed the matching coastlines of the Atlantic continents -- they looked on maps like they had once been fit together. He first spoke on the topic in
January of 1912, where he put forth the idea of "continental displacement" or what later was called continental drift. 02/26/2020 4 Harry Hess 1906-1969
Proved Wegener's basic idea correct and clarified the mechanism that broke the once-joined continents into the seven continents. IMPORTANT - The continents are attached to the plates and do not move independently of them. The plates themselves shift and change shape, carrying the continents along. In 1960 he hypothesized that the seafloor was spreading from vents in the Rift, where hot magma oozed up. 02/26/2020 5
John Tuzo Wilson 1908 - 1993 1960's - Refined and the theory of plate tectonics. Introduced the idea of "hot spots" which remain stationary under the moving plates and produce chains of islands like Hawaii and Japan
First to identify "transform faults" which link trenches (where the plates collide) and rifts (where the plates pull apart) 02/26/2020 6 PLATE TECTONICS Know the 7 Major Tectonic Plates of the World 02/26/2020
7 Plate Tectonics. There are about 20 oceanic and continent plates. Plates float across a layer of soft rock like rafts in a stream, their motions driven by forces generated deep in the Earth.
In addition to the continents drifting, large blocks of heavier ocean floor are also being pushed about the surface of the earth. 02/26/2020 8 Close to Home Example The North American and the Eurasian Plates are made of rigid mantle and oceanic and continental crust.
The Mid-Atlantic Ridge is the boundary between the two plates. New oceanic crust is created at the ridge. The Mid-Atlantic Ridge is an example of a divergent plate boundary. Because the plates are diverging, the distance between North America and Europe is increasing. 02/26/2020 9 Overview - Importance
Here, new land (crust) is born and old land is consumed. Geologically active: Hot springs spew out mineral-rich waters, volcanoes erupt, and earthquakes tremble -resulting in devastating tsunamis, floods, and mudslides. At their boundaries, the plates spread apart, converge, and slide past one another.
02/26/2020 10 Convergent Plate Boundaries Convergent Plate Boundaries - Regions where plates are pushing together Oceanic crust toward continental crust Oceanic crust toward oceanic crust Continental crust toward continental crust Compression 02/26/2020 11
Subduction at Converging Boundaries 02/26/2020 12 Ring of Fire (Subduction Zone) found in the basin of the Pacific Ocean Scraping of one plate on another generates powerful
earthquakes Heating of the plate within the depths of the mantle produces molten rock (magma) that surface as volcanoes. 02/26/2020 13 Volcanoes 02/26/2020 Volcanoes are formed
when magma makes its way to the surface, accumulates a mountain as it cools and then is a giant mountain of cold magma. 14 Trenches 02/26/2020
Trenches are formed when two plates push toward each other and there is a valley in between the plates. 15 Mountai ns Mountains are formed when two plates collide into each other and cause the land to crinkle and fold. 02/26/2020 16
Divergent Plate Boundaries The lithospheric plates interact with the neighboring plates in several ways. Boundaries between plates moving apart: Divergent oceanic crust for example, the Mid-Atlantic Ridge Divergent continental crust - for example, the Rift Valley of East Africa. 02/26/2020 17 Valleys
Formed during divergent plate movement How? Two plates collide together but are not pushed leaving a leaving a depression called a valley 02/26/2020
18 Ridges Volcanic Mountains 02/26/2020 Ridges are formed when the pulling apart of a fault in the ocean floor causes magma or lava to ooze through and form a bump on the ocean floor. Over time looks like a dirt bike track, except its on the bottom of the ocean floor.
19 Ridge System 02/26/2020 20 Plate Boundaries Transform plate boundary: slide past each other. Example: The San Andreas fault in California (Pacific Plate slides past the North American Plate).
Translation at transform boundaries causes shear. 02/26/2020 21 EARTHQUAKES Transform Faults Earthquakes, too, can occur outside of the plate boundaries. Within the interior of a plate, stresses -- from buckling,
stretching, or compression of the rock -- can build up, until the rock finally breaks creating an Earthquake. 02/26/2020 22 Partner Quiz Number your paper 1-20 (Write both names on the paper) You may use your notes on this quiz. Partner Quiz 02/26/2020
