geographic feature associated with them. For instance, an ocean-continent convergent boundary can be identified by the deep-sea trench or by the volcanic mountain chain. You will only need to identify each setting with one prominent geographic feature. Finally, list the geologic phenomena or features that are typically associated with each type of plate tectonic features. These can include the following: small shallow earthquakes large deep earthquakes volcanoes (volcanic island arcs, volcanic mountain ranges [on a continent]) deep sea trenches mid-ocean ridges continental mountain ranges (non-volcanic).
Divergent Boundaries: 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.
