Examine the map below and answer the question that follows. E is moving toward the ___________. a. southeast b. southwest c. northeast d. northwest

ConcepTest: Spreading Rate of Spreading Center part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience: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 Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience: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: Movement of Volcano part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:ConcepTests:Examples
A volcano formed over a hot spot in the Pacific Ocean would travel approximately _______ in 1000 years. (Assume a constant rate of plate motion. 1 km = 1000 m; 1 m = 100 cm; 1 cm = 10 mm.) a. 1-2 meters b. 100-200 ...

ConcepTest: Magnetic Inclination in Lava part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience: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 ...
