    Plate Tectonics and Related Geologic Phenomena Name EXERCISE Section The Nazca Plate This exercise deals with the boundaries, or margins, of the Nazca Plate (figs. and ) with special reference to its western boundary along the East Pacific Rise and its east- ern boundary along the west coast of South America. • Plate tectonics describes the distribution and motion of the Atlantic Ridge, East Pacific Rise, and Mid-Indian Ridge. Figure 8. Principal topographic features of the floor of the southern Atlantic Ocean. The oceanic ridge occupies more than half the width of the ocean floor.

    The part of the Earth on which the tectonic plates are able to move is the. a. lithosphere. c. mesosphere. b. asthenosphere. d. subduction zone. ____ 7. The ancient continent that contained all the landmasses is called. a. Pangaea. c. Laurasia. b. Gondwana. d. Panthalassa. ____ 8. The type of tectonic plate boundary involving a collision. The surface layer of the earth is called the crust and it makes up only 1 percent of Earth's crust is subdivided into two components: oceanic and continental crust. Again referring back to the image on the right, note that the oceanic crust is only about 3 miles thick, but is more dense than continental of this oceanic rock is called basalt and is a dark, dense rock.

    Multiple Choice Questions for Plate Tectonics - Chapter 19 The theory of plate tectonics was widely accepted by _____. the end of the 19th century about about about the Great Rift Valley of East Africa the East Pacific Rise the San Andreas fault. Twenty years ago geologists were certain that the data correlated perfectly with the then-reigning model of stationary continents. The handful of geologists who promoted the notion of continental drift were accused of indulging in pseudoscientific fancy. Today, the opinion is reversed. The theory of moving continents is now the ruling paradigm and those who question it are often referred to as.

The portion of the East Pacific Rise (EPR) between 5° and 12°S can be subdivided into three areas by fracture zones that offset the rise axis at about °S and 9°S.

In all three regions, the spreading axis of the EPR is defined by a topographic block to m high and about 15 km by: 6. Tectonics of the East Pacific Rise, 5⁰ to 12⁰S. Abstract. Graduation date: The portion of the East Pacific Rise (EPR) between 5° and 12°S\ud can be subdivided into three areas by fracture zones that offset the\ud rise axis at about °S and 9°S.

The rise axis is offset in two places\ud about 10 km. These displacements are. Tectonics of the East Pacific rise: studies of faulting characteristics and magnetic and gravity anomalies. Using the diving saucer “Cyana”, a portion of the East Pacific Rise between 12°38′ and 12°54′N has been studied and mapped.

Four main zones are defined: (1) an active volcanic zone located in the central graben; the graben displays a variable relief along strike from less than 10 m up to 55 m and has an en-échelon pattern in plan view; (2) an active tectonic zone comprising the Cited by:   Earth’s tectonic plates are generally considered to be driven largely by negative buoyancy associated with subduction of oceanic lithosphere.

In this context, mid-ocean ridges (MORs) are passive plate boundaries whose divergence accommodates flow driven by subduction of oceanic slabs at trenches. We show that over the past 80 million years (My), the East Pacific Rise (EPR), Cited by: Plate Tectonics in Biogeography controversial years before the general acceptance of plate tectonic theory began its rise to the forefront of global geology.

Currently, a team of scientists is cruising the eastern Pacific Ocean off the coast of Mexico and is preparing for submersible dives on the East Pacific Rise, part of the world’s mid-ocean ridge system. The mid-ocean ridges are tectonic plate boundaries where new ocean crust forms.

Detailed Analysis of Near Tectonic Features Along the East Pacific Rise at 16°N, Near the Mathematician Hot Spot observations from submersible surveys are used to develop a detailed tectonic analysis of the 16°N segment of the East Pacific Rise (EPR).

These data are used to evaluate how a highly magmatic segment, close to a hot spot. Start studying Plate Tectonics. Learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards, games, and other study tools.

East Pacific rise. The East Pacific Rise is a mid-oceanic ridge, a divergent tectonic plate boundary located along the floor of the Pacific Ocean. It separates the Pacific Plate to the west from the North American Plate, the Rivera Plate, the Cocos Plate, the Nazca Plate, and the Antarctic Plate.

It runs south from the Gulf of California in the Salton Sea basin in Southern California to a point near 55° S, ° W, where it joins the Pacific.

America began to override the East Pacific Rise, an oceanic spreading ridge. This activity placed a progressively longer segment of the coast in contact with the plate west of the ridge. This activity placed a progressively longer segment of the coast in contact with the plate west of the ridge.

Earthquakes and Plate Tectonics. It is relatively easy to see the relationships between earthquakes and the plate boundaries. Along divergent boundaries like the mid-Atlantic ridge and the East Pacific Rise, earthquakes are common, but restricted to a narrow zone close to the ridge, and consistently at less than 30 km depth.

Photographs obtained by the ANGUS survey system at 21°N reveal many similarities to the geological processes delineated at other spreading centers and in particular those observed in the Galapagos Rift at 86°W.

The region of recent volcanism is restricted to a narrow zone (Zone 1) approximately 1 km wide. This suggests that the width of the magma chamber feeding these flows is also narrow at.

Atlantic Ridge and the East Pacific Rise. Most of the km-thick gap between the plates is filled by the upward flow of solid mantle material, but the uppermost 6 km in the ocean basins is composed of basaltic lava and its noneruptive equivalents. The basalt forms as a partial melt of mantle material.But I can't wrap my head around the idea of this phenomenon creating the linear ridges we see extending across thousands of kilometers, like the East Pacific Rise.

Because, that "ridge" we see in the above picture is just an elevation seen in a cross section of the Earth, that could very well be just a volcano or a single oceanic mountain, not.Many earth processes make more sense when viewed through the lens of plate tectonics. Because it is so important in understanding how the world works, plate tectonics is the first topic of discussion in this textbook.
