1) The general relationship between epicenters and volcano positions are they are situated in thesame position. Based on the readings this week, this plate boundary is a convergent plateboundary.2) Many earthquakes are recorded in the Gulf of California because the state sits on the circum-Pacific belt. This would indicate a transform fault plate boundary.3) The chain of earthquake epicenters through Guatemala toward Cuba follows along a oceanicridge system. This type of plate boundary is divergent.4) As I moved the map to see earthquake and volcano distribution through Costa Rica intoPanama, I noticed volcanoes became closer together and created more yellow intermediateearthquakes.5) The Nazca plate seems to be moving eastward since it follows convergent and divergentboundary lines.6) The type of volcanoes in the Galapagos region are shield volcanoes. This tells us that themagma is situated in a shallow magma chamber.
