Analyzing Systems (SYSB) Test

Plate tectonics (SYSB-1)

  1. Name the energy source driving the tectonic system? ________________
  2. What does the theory of plate tectonics have that the hypothesis of continental drift did not have?  

PNW Tectonics (SYSB-2)

Draw a detailed diagram of our plate boundary. Labels: plate motion, volcanic arc, trench, oceanic crust, continental crust, melting oceanic crust.  

Lithosphere/Asthenosphere (SYSB-3)

Contrast lithosphere and asthenosphere. 


Plate Boundaries (SYSB-4)

Draw a detailed diagram of a divergent boundary. Labels: plate motion, paleomagnetic stripes, mid-ocean ridge, convection currents, oceanic crust
