Transcript of Plate Tectonics

WEEK 18: PLATE TECTONICS
Friday, Dec. 12
EQ: What was the early theory of continental drift, who developed it, and when was it developed?
Tuesday, Jan 6, 2015
EQ: How is density applied to earth's layers?
On page 45

Lithosphere: the crust and upper mantle. Location of tectonic plates. Includes continental and oceanic crust.
Monday, Dec 15
EQ: Why is understanding the theory of Continental Drift important to us today?
Think About It:

1. In 1596, Dutch map maker Abraham Ortelius noted he believed the continents were once connected. Why do you think a cartographer would come to this conclusion?

2. What additional evidence do you think helps prove the continents were once connected?

3. If the continents were once connected as the continent of Pangaea, what must have occurred between then and now to create the continents that exist today?

Asthenosphere: part of the earth's mantle that is just BELOW the lithosphere.
Mantle: Layer of earth that lies between CORE and CRUST. Made of super heated rock, 85% of the earth's weight.
Outer Core: Super heated lava found 3,000 miles beneath the Earth's surface.
Inner Core: Innermost solid part of the earth, made mostly of iron and nickel.
Oceanic Crust
lower mantle
continental crust
convection currents
upper mantle
