Types of convergent boundaries
Oceanic-oceanic convergent boundary, Oceanic-continental
convergent boundary, Continental-continental convergent
As erosion removes the tops of mountains the crust will rise upwards This is an example of
In which era do you live today
A fault in which the hanging wall moves down relative to the footwall is a
What length of time does the geologic time scale cover
An unconformity is a buried what
A buried erosional or non-depositional surface that separates
two rock masses is known as an unconformity. An unconformity may
also be a surface that separates two strata of different ages.
Radiometric dating is possible because the rates of decay of radioactive isotopes
An example of folded mountains can be seen in
B, The Alps of Europe. :)
If erosion stripped off the top of a dome what would be found
The oldest rocks are exposed in the center.
:) Good luck.
The thickest part of the crust occurs in what
What is the name of the doctrine that states the physical chemical and biological laws that operate today have also operated in the geologic past
Which item could be dated using radiocarbon dating
A 60,000 year old mammoth bone.
Which is a true statement about the process of accretion
It enlarges continental landmasses and forms mountains along the
edges of continents.
What type of mountain ranges form at convergent plate boundaries
Folded and volcanic mountains
If additional weight is added to a piece of crust how will the crust respond
If a mass of granite is in contact with a layer of sandstone that contains small pieces of the granite which rock is older
Ocean convergence produces what
Ocean convergence with continental plates result in subduction
zone. Oceanic with oceanic plates convergence forms volcanic
A downwarped structure with a circular shape is a
Which factors help determine whether a volcanic eruption will be explosive or relatively quiet
The volatile content of the magma.
Weather water or Ice has ingres to the volcanic vent.
The physical stability of the volcano.
An accumulation of different sedimentary and metamorphic rocks combined with scraps of ocean crust is called
