Geosc 001, Spring 2022Activity / Problem Set #1: Hawaii and IndonesiaThis problem set is designed to help you focus on the relationships between volcanism and plate motion.Note that there are three parts to the problem set, and all of the figures are located after the problem setso you will need to explore the entire document in order to answer the questions. No need to print andhand in the figures, just the first two pages here (with your answers) and the graphs. Be sure to includeyour name on the first page!You will need to hand in the following items:Part I â€“ a graph and answers to questions belowPart II - a graph and answers to questions belowPart III â€“ a paragraph-long answerAll parts are due before midnight on Thursday February 10th.Part I:What is the relationship between the motion of the Pacific plate and that of the Hawaiian hot spot overthe last 70 million years?1.Examine the maps of Hawaii that show the entire Emperor Seamount volcanic chain.2.After reading the information provided, plot in Excel the relationship between volcano age (onthe x-axis) and distance from Kilauea (on the y-axis). You do not need to include the uncertaintyon each measurement as part of the graph.Hawaii / Indonesia Activity â€“ Tanya Furman

b.What does the slope represent (physical meaning in geological terms)?
