Click on the picture labeled “Subduction”. Wait for it to load, and there should be another movie.

14. What two kinds of convergence are shown in the movie?

Part 4. Plate Tectonic Maps

Now go to http://denali.gsfc.nasa.gov/research/lowman/Lowman_map1_lg.jpg

You will see a plate tectonic map of the world. Rest the mouse on the bottom right corner of the map and after a couple of seconds an enlargement icon should appear. Click on this icon to see the map in full size. Now you can use the scroll bars on the side and bottom to maneuver around the map.

15. Using the key at the bottom of the map, what is happening in Idaho, tectonically speaking?

Read the following article about the Java Trench: https://sites.google.com/a/apps.hopkinsschools.org/plate-tectonics—regions/home/java-trench

Now, if you would like to try to control the plate tectonic movement at your speed of choice, go to

Homework: Prior to next class

Familiarize yourself with each map. Compare each map with the original plate boundaries map. What does each map show?

How does each map relate compare to the original plate boundaries map? Where is major activity occurring? What did you learn? What questions do you still have?
