Analyzing Systems (SYSB) Practice

  1. Plate tectonics (SYSB-1)
    1. Name the energy source driving the tectonic system? ________________
    2. Describe the process that generates this energy. 




    3. Describe the process that transmits energy to the lithosphere? 




    4. What is the effect of the energy on the lithosphere? 






  2. PNW Tectonics (SYSB-2)
    1. Draw a detailed diagram of our plate boundary: Oceanic-continental convergent. Labels: plate motion, lithosphere, asthenosphere, volcanic arc, trench, oceanic crust, continental crust, melting oceanic crust.  





       



  3. Lithosphere/Asthenosphere (SYSB-3)
    1. Compare and contrast lithosphere and the asthenosphere with crust and mantle. 










  4. Plate Boundaries (SYSB-4)

    Draw detailed diagrams of the five types of plate boundaries:

    1. Divergent. Labels: plate motion, lithosphere, asthenosphere, magnetic stripes, mid-ocean ridge, convection currents, oceanic crust 



       





    2. Oceanic-oceanic convergent. Labels: plate motion, lithosphere, asthenosphere, volcanic island arc, trench, oceanic crust, melting oceanic crust 



       





    3. Continental-continental convergent. Labels: plate motion, lithosphere, asthenosphere, mountains, continental crust 



       





    4. Transform. Labels: plate motion, crust
