Name Hassaan AhmedGOL 105: Physical GeologyPlate Tectonics LabMaps to use:This Dynamic Planet (USGS publications)- A Global Map/Atlas – The National Geographic Map below can be used or an equivalent one that includes geographic and sea floor features. (Please copy the lab onto your computer before entering your answers into the tablesprovided, then save your copy and submit it to the instructor)Directions: Please identify several examples of each of the following plate tectonic settings using the maps referenced above. Please read the legend at the bottom of the This Dynamic Planet Map which explains the symbols used on the map. For each example, provide a geographic name for the setting (e.g., the Andes Mountains, the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, etc.) and identify the tectonic plate(s) that are involved. The plate names are identified on the This Dynamic PlanetMap. TheThis Dynamic Planet Map does not provide the names of associated geologic features. To find these you will need to use an atlas. Several geographic Atlases can befound on-line (We have provided a link to the global atlas of the National Geographic Society), or you can use one that you may have access to at your home. Be sure you find an atlas that contains the geographic names of the ocean floor features in addition to the geographic names of land features. Some features may have more than one geographic feature associated with them. For instance, an ocean-continent convergent boundary can be identified by the deep-sea trench or by the continental volcanic arc.
