Which of these locations has active volcanoes (Hint: look at the age of the volcanoes) A B C D 3. Which arrow best shows the direction the plate is moving over the stationary mantle plume? Remember that the plate is moving over the stationary mantle plume, carrying the once new (now older) volcanoes away from the mantle plume. 4. Draw a circle showing where an island will appear in the future and label it “Future Island”. 5. You are moving to Island C to go to the University. Should you get volcano insurance? Explain why or why not using geologic information about hot spots and tectonic plate motion. Part 2. Below is a map of Yellowstone volcanic rocks. You should print this map so you can use a ruler to measure distances. The path of the North American Plate over the Yellowstone hot spot is shown in the diagram. The circles with numbers in them are volcanic features called calderas . The numbers in the calderas are the average age of the crustal rocks, in millions of years. The rocks in each caldera were formed when that part of the North American Plate was located over the hotspot. A. Use the scale given under the picture. What is the distance between the oldest and youngest caldera?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
