What mid ocean ridge rock Is younger and is it close to the ridge or far away?
No. The rocks of the ocean floor gets older the farther they are away from the mid-ocean ridge. Read More
Mid-ocean ridges are basically underground volcanoes that lava from the Earth's Mantle can breach. The ocean, however, freezes the lava and that in turn forms rock. If this happens repeatedly, then the older rock gets pushed away from the source, and the younger, just formed rock is, therefore, closer to the ridge. So the younger rock being formed by the ridge is pushing away the older, previously made, igneous rock. Read More
It gets older. Read More
The closer the sediment is to the mid-ocean ridge, the younger it is. The oldest bedrock is found the farthest away from it. Read More
Is the oceanic crust near the mid ocean ridge younger than oceanic crust farther away from the ridge?
True Read More
hit the books!! Read More
Sediments become thicker away from the mid ocean ridge. This is because the oceanic crust away from the mid ocean ridge is older than the crust close to it, so sediment has had more time to accumulate. Read More
Older, as it moves away from the mid-ocean ridge the sediment gets thicker and older Read More
Actually, the rock taken the farthest away from the ridge is older. Read More
haha i really dont know Read More
They measure how far away the rock is from the mid-ocean ridge. The farther, the older. Read More
Is the oceanic crust near a mid-ocean ridge thicker or thinner than the oceanic crust away from the mid-ocean ridge?
The Oceanic Crust close to the Mid Ocean Ridge is thinner than that Oceanic Crust far away from the ridge. This is due to tensional forces, as a result of crustal expansion and rock fracturing during the formation of the ridge. the oceanic crust is thinner Read More
Why does the ocean rock increase in age the greater the distance away from an ocean spreading ridge?
At ocean spreading ridges, new oceanic crust is formed. The magma that forms this new crust emerges from the ridge and pushes the pre-existing rocks away from the ridge laterally. This results in a strip of new rock cutting through the older rock. As formation of the crust continues, the older rocks will be pushed further away from the ridge, while younger, newly produced rocks will occupy the area closest to the ridge. Read More
The age of the ocean floor increases as you move away from a mid-ocean-ridge. Read More
Is the oceanic crust near the mid-ocean ridge younger or older than the oceanic crust farther away from the ridge?
It is younger because the plates there pull apart, causing a new sea floor to form. When a hotspot is involved, it will push away the old sea floor to make room for the new one. Read More
The basalts of the ocean floors are created at the mid-ocean ridges and moves away from these ridges as new crust is created. thus as sea floor spreading occurs the older rock gets pushed away from the ridge towards the continents and the younger rock comes up beside the ridge. good example is the Atlantic ocean Read More
Rock moving away from a mid-ocean ridge is replaces by more oceanic crust. Read More
As one moves farther away from an ocean ridge, the age of the rocks and the seafloor increases. This process is called seafloor spreading. Read More
Oceanic crust that was farther away from a mid-ocean ridge was older that crust closer to the ridge Read More
Ridge push is a gravitation force that causes a plate to move away from the crest of an ocean ridge, and into a subduction zone. Read More
oceanic crust that was farther away from a mid-ocean ridge was older than crust closer to the ridge Read More
Harry Hess was mapping the floor of the ocean when he found a mountain range in the middle of the ocean. He found that the land nearest to the ridge was younger compared to the fact that the farther away land was from the ridge, the older it dated. He used this to find that the mountain ridge was creating new land and pushing aside the old land. Read More
How did scientists discover that rocks farther away from the mid ocean ridge were older than the ones closer to the mid ocean ridge?
I don't believe that is possible to figure out Read More
Can plate movement occur when a plate is pushed away from an ocean trench during a process called ridge push?
No, plate movement can not occur when a plate is pushed away from an ocean trench during a ridge push process. Read More
Seafloor continues to move away from the mid-ocean ridge and eventually comes into contact with another plate boundary. Ocean plates subduct underneath continental plates and are forced down into the lithosphere Read More
A mid-ocean ridge is formed when two tectonic plates move away from each other and the opening left by them separating fills in with magma. Read More
What information indicates that new seafloor rock is forming along a mid-ocean ridge and then moving horizontally away from the ridge?
Mostly Volcanoes are located under ocean water. Read More
The further away a point is from the mid-ocean ridge, the deeper the sediment layer should be. Because the ocean floor is relatively new nearer the ridge, sediments have had less time to accumulate. Read More
Its oceanic crust Read More
it is older Read More
It's thinner Read More
its deposited somewhere else Read More
No farther away Read More

New ocean floor is being created, pushing the Americas away from Europe and Africa. Read More
No. The Mid-Atlantic Ridge is a place where the North American Plate and the Eurasian Plate are splitting away from each other. Read More
Mid ocean ridges are located at divergent boundaries on the ocean floor. Divergent boundaries form when one ocean plate moves away from another ocean plate. Read More
The buoyancy of the magma at a mid ocean ridge pushes the plate away from the ridge towards a subduction zone. Ridge push is a possible mechanism for plate tectonics, but is insignificant compared to slab pull. Read More

it is caused by convection currents Read More
No, actually its the farther it goes from the ridge the older and the thicker it gets. Read More
As you move away from an ocean ridge, the rocks get older. Read More
as you move away from an ocean ridge the rocks get older Read More
mid-oceanic ridge. its where the plates are shifting away from eachother. Read More
It spreads away form the ridges Read More
Because as tectonic plates move away from each other, the ocean floor spreads apart and fills the gap. Read More
