Description:

In this lab students interpret bathymetric, topography, sea floor ages, and earthquake distributions to reinforce concepts about the different types of plate boundaries. Each student must interpret several sets of data to determine the location and type of plate boundary. To develop a set of basic analytical skills, the students draw several diagrams and graphs to reinforce the data presented in figures. Students are also asked to think critically about plate rates and what happens to the crust at the different plate boundaries. This activity uses online and/or real-time data and has minimal/no quantitative component.
