Types of convergent boundaries

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

In which era do you live today

Cenozoic Cenozoic

The youngest rocks are found near the center of

a downwarping known as a basin

What do you call mountains formed by blocks of crust moving along a fault

fault-block mountains

Radiometric dating is possible because the rates of decay of radioactive isotopes

Are constant

If erosion stripped off the top of a dome what would be found

The oldest rocks are exposed in the center.

:) Good luck.

Folding is usually the result of what type of stress

compressional forces

What is the Long narrow area that has dropped between two faults

graben

The major forces that form folded mountains are

Compressional Stresses

Which type of geologic event has to occur to create an angular unconformity

The folding or tilting of rocks, followed by renewed deposition, has to occur to create an angular unconformity.

Which is associated with divergent boundaries

rift valleys or mid-ocean ridges allowing the magma from Earth's mantle to expel onto the crust of the Earth causing new land to form. An example of this is the mid-Atlantic ridge which is a huge contributing factor to the tectonic plate theory that the earth's tectonic plates are constantly moving due to the currents in Earth's mantle and new land forming causing the older land to be pushed away.

Ocean Mountain Chains(:

What is a sentence for fault block mountain

Fault block mountain can be high.

Which action is not considered part of orogenesis

sedimentation

Which features are associated with divergent boundaries

Idfk

What type of orogenesis formed the black hills in South Dakota

upwarping

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.

Which feature can be produced at an ocean-continental convergence

continental volcanic arc. :)

What type of mountain ranges form at convergent plate boundaries

Folded and volcanic mountains

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

What is the continental crust like in young mountainous regions

thicker

At a continent-continent convergence

folded mountains are produced
