HMK 1_Plate Boundaries: Present, future, & past part of Cutting Edge:Geodesy:Activities
This project builds on in-class exercises and lectures by having students learn to identify modern, future, and past plate boundaries. Students will use trends in topography, distribution of earth quake and volcanoes, as well as hot spot age data, and GPS data to characterize modern and future plate boundaries. There are three parts to this exercise that include modern, future, and past plate boundary examples.
