Plate Tectonic Assignment – 10 points The physical environment is constantly changing due to plate tectonics. In this exercise you will locate real time geological events and determine which of the lithospheric plates are creating the event and which process is being undergone. For this exercise you will need to use a world outline map (location listed below), colored pencils, and an Atlas to find Lat/Long coordinates. Step 1: The following websites list real time volcanic and earthquake activity. http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/recenteqsww/Quakes/quakes_big.php http://volcano.und.edu/vwdocs/current_volcs/currentold.html Use three of the recent volcanic events and the three most recent major earthquake events. Write down the Latitude and Longitude coordinates. Use your atlas to determine where each of these events is occurring on the map. Do not use Kilauea, Hawai'i. Step 2: Use the plate tectonics map in your textbook or atlas to determine the type of plate boundary where these events occurred. Step 3:
