ConcepTests part of ConcepTests
Developed by David McConnell, Department of Marine, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences, North Carolina State University What are ConcepTests? ConcepTests are conceptual multiple-choice questions that focus on one key ...

ConcepTest: Axis of Ridge part of ConcepTests:Examples
This is part of a magnetic profile across an oceanic ridge system. The profile shows both positive and negative anomalies. Based on the symmetry of the patterns, where is the axis of the ridge located? a. A b. B c. ...

ConcepTest: Mantle Convection part of ConcepTests:Examples
Which of the schematic diagrams below best represents mantle convection associated with plate tectonics? a. b. c. d. e.

ConcepTest: Linear Mountain Range part of ConcepTests:Examples
In exploring a new planet, you discover a long, linear mountain range crossing a broad low-lying area that is interpreted to represent an ancient basin. Predict what type of plate tectonic feature this represents. ...

ConcepTest: Trough part of ConcepTests:Examples
In exploring a new planet, you discover a long, linear trough that separates a low lying region and an upland region. Predict what type of plate tectonic feature this represents. a. subduction zone b. ...

ConcepTest: Magnetic Inclination in Lava part of ConcepTests:Examples
Two lava flows formed at the same location on a plate, 90 million years apart. The plate migrated 500 km northward in the time between the formation of the first and second lava flows. Scientists sampled rocks from ...

ConcepTest: Changing Magnetic Inclination part of ConcepTests:Examples
The location of the magnetic North Pole migrated slowly northward over the last century. Assuming that you live in North America, how did magnetic inclination readings of your city change between 1904 and 2004? a. ...

ConcepTest: Spreading Rate of Spreading Center part of ConcepTests:Examples
Scientists collect rock samples of the oceanic crust from a location that is 10 km from a spreading center. (1 km = 1000 m; 1 m = 100 cm; 1 cm = 10 mm.) The sampled rocks were found to be 200,000 years old. What ...

ConcepTest: Magnetic Inclination part of ConcepTests:Examples
The diagram below shows the magnetic inclination determined for three lava flows preserved in a cliff. (Assume that Earth's magnetic field was in the same orientation as it is today.) What happened to the ...

ConcepTest: Plate Motion and Effect on Cities #1 part of ConcepTests:Examples
Review the map of the plates below and identify which pair of locations is moving closer together as a result of plate tectonics. a. Bombay and Sydney b. Hawaii and Tokyo c. New York and London d. Cape Town and ...
