Plate Tectonics (Physical Science - Earth Science)
ANSWERS: ( Page 71) 1. Check student's labeling. 2. Deep ocean trenches (i.e., Aleutian) are located along the northern and western borders of the Pacific Plate. This is an area of volcanic and earthquake activity due to the Pacific Plate diving under the adjoingin plates in this area. Thus, this area is called the "Ring of Fire." 3. The ridges along the edges of the Pacific Plate and on the Atlantic Ocean floor are caused by the plates separating and magma from the mantle pushing through. 4. The Himalayan Mountains were created when the Indian Plate pushed into the Eurasian plate. Since the Indian Plate is still pushing slowly northward, these mountains continue to rise.
