Plate Tectonics Lab
Identify five (5) different divergent plate boundaries (spreading centers) on the earth.
What geologic features/phenomena (i.e. earthquakes, volcanoes, trenches, mountains,
etc.) are associated with this boundary?
Be careful, not all features labeled “ridge”
on the map are tectonic spreading centers.
Eurasian Plate, N. American Plate, African
Plate, & S. American Plate
