Hotspot Lesson: Hotspot Theory and Plate Velocities
Jamie A. Russell, Scripps Institution of Oceanography Related Links Relative Dating Mantle Plumes Samoan Hotspot Final Hotspot Project View Lesson Plan at ERESE ...
This activity provides the students with a data set of ages of some of the Hawaiian Volcanoes and seamounts and how far they are from the active volcanism (considered to be the location of the hotspot). By plotting the data on a graph and fitting the data with a line of best fit, the plate velocity can be estimated by taking the slope of the line.
