How energy from deep within the earth is/was transferred to and released during the volcanic event/earthquake.

Using what you learned about plate tectonics, Alfred Wegener, and the basics of scientific investigation from the previous units discuss the following:

  1. Navigate to the following site:
  2. U.S. Geological Survey Earthquake Map. (2016). Retrieved from http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/map/
  3. Zoom out to see all the earthquakes that have happened worldwide today. List the most recent earthquake and its magnitude. How many earthquakes have happened in the last day? Why do so many occur near plate boundaries (red lines on map)?
  4. Look at the following map of the world where triangles represent active volcanoes:
  5. NOVA: Teacher’s Images. (2015). Retrieved from http://www-tc.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/education/activities/images/2515_vesuvius_map2.gif
  6. Why do so many occur near plate boundaries (yellow lines on map)?
  7. Pick one active volcano or earthquake from around the globe or a historical geological event and explain the following
    1. What plates or hot spots it is associated with.
    2. How the plates or hot spots are causing/caused the volcanic event/earthquake.
    3. How energy from deep within the earth is/was transferred to and released during the volcanic event/earthquake.
  8. If Alfred Wegener were alive today, and had access to the technology and data that exists today, share a form of evidence that he could have added to his hypothesis or would have changed his hypothesis. Try to share a different form of evidence from those shared by your classmates and/or add to their posts by describing how the evidence is collected, how the technology works to collect the data, or how this technology/evidence has been used in other applications.
