ConcepTest: EQs at Convergent Boundaries
The figures below show the location of a plate boundary (red line) and the distribution of earthquake epicenters (filled black circles). The size of the filled circle indicates the earthquake magnitude. Given the distribution and size of the earthquakes, which figure best represents a convergent plate boundary between oceanic and continental plates?a.
