Types of convergent boundaries

Oceanic-oceanic convergent boundary, Oceanic-continental convergent boundary, Continental-continental convergent boundary.

As erosion removes the tops of mountains the crust will rise upwards This is an example of

Rebound.

In which era do you live today

Cenozoic Cenozoic

A fault in which the hanging wall moves down relative to the footwall is a

This is a normal fault.

What length of time does the geologic time scale cover

4.6

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

Are constant

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

Youngest mountain ranges

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

Uniformitarianism

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

By Sinking

If a mass of granite is in contact with a layer of sandstone that contains small pieces of the granite which rock is older

granite

Ocean convergence produces what

Ocean convergence with continental plates result in subduction zone. Oceanic with oceanic plates convergence forms volcanic mountain.

A downwarped structure with a circular shape is a

basin

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

accretionary wedge
