Name ______________________________ Chapter 3 Investigation Worksheet; page 1 To complete this worksheet, see the instructions in the textbook (Chapter 3 Investigation). Table 1. Plate Boundaries of an Unknown Ocean and Continents This perspective view shows two continents, labeled A and B, separated by an ocean. Use the topography to identify possible plate boundaries and to propose whether each boundary is divergent , convergent , or transform . Use colored pencils or pens to mark the location and type of each plate boundary on the figure below. Use the following colors: divergent = black; convergent = red; transform = green or blue. For transform boundaries, mark only transform faults (where motion is

Predicting the Location of Earthquakes and Volcanoes Use your plate boundaries to mark where on the map earthquakes and volcanoes are likely. On the figure above, do the following: Draw circles [ ] at any place on the land or on the ocean floor, where you think earthquakes are likely. Draw triangles [] in any place, on land or in the ocean, where you think volcanic eruptions are likely. Remember that not all volcanoes form directly on the plate boundary; some form off to one side.
