Activities (2)

Tension gashes with Jell-O part of Cutting Edge:Structural Geology:Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
The purpose of this activity is to help students visualize how tensions gashes form.

Magnetic anomalies and superplumes: is there a connection? part of Cutting Edge:Structural Geology:Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
What causes magnetic anomalies? Is there a relationship between superplumes and changes in polarity on the magnetic time scale?

Course

The Plate Tectonics Revolution part of Cutting Edge:Structural Geology:Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Courses
Although only ~40 years old, the theory of plate tectonics provides a global framework to understand such varied phenomena as earthquakes, volcanoes, ocean basins and mountain systems both on continents (e.g. the Himalaya, the Andes) and beneath the seas (e.g. the East Pacific Rise, the Mid-Atlantic Ridge). In-depth analysis of plate boundaries, the driving forces of plate tectonics, global plate reconstructions and the predictive power of plate tectonics.
