The youngest part of the sea floor is: Question options: along the mid-ocean ridge in the middle of the Pacific Ocean near Japan in the deep sea trenches farthest from the mid-ocean ridges n 3 / po The magnetic anomaly stripes on the sea floor Question options:
record a sequence of reversals of the Earth's magnetic field show a symmetrical pattern on each side of the spreading center are created as magma crystallizes and cools below the Curie Point at the mid-ocean ridges all of the above none of the above n 3 / po What is Pangaea?
n 4 / po The geographic location where a rock formed can be determined based on: Question options: seafloor spreading fossil content paleoclimatic indicators magnetic reversal b and c n 3 / po What is the approximate age of the oldest rocks on the sea floor? Question options:
