“Geoworld” Plate Tectonics Lab7
.A. Usingthemap on p. 11, cut along the margins of the Elrond Sea and put the Bilbo and Frodo Continentsback together in their original configuration, forming the Bilbo/Frodo supercontinent. TheMisty Mountains and the Rivendell Mountains are fold-and-thrust mountains. The age ofdeformation in both mountain ranges is 200 million years before present. How are the two mountain ranges related, if at all? B. What type of plate tectonic event do they probably represent? C. While the Elrond Sea has been opening, the Aragorn Ocean has been closing. Assumingthat (1) no sea-floor spread has taken place in the Aragorn Ocean for at least 65 millionyears, and (2) subduction has been occurring for at least 65 million years, how wide wasthe Aragorn Ocean along A-A'at the time spreading started in the Elrond Sea? Use theSauron Trench as the western boundary of the Aragorn Ocean. Show your equations andexplain where each number came from.Part 2: Analysis of Geoworld in the Past
