events are not evenly distributed over the Earth. You will be asked to look for patterns in the locations of these occurrences globally and discuss how they affect the planet and its inhabitants.Part One1. Go to the following web site: . On your world map, indicate with a blue circle all the major earthquakes (>6.7) for 2006 2007. You’ll needto scroll down to “Optional Search Parameters”.2. Plot the location of the following volcanoes, using small red triangles:Mt Etna, Italy, 37.73N, 15.00E Blup Blup, Papau New Guinea, 3.5S, 144. EAyelu, Ethiopia, 10.082N, 40.702E Pinatubo, Philippines, 15.13N, 120.35ELikaiu, Kenya, 2.17N, 36.36E Askj, Iceland, 65.3N, 16.75WLascar, Chile, 23.32S, 67.44W El Chichon, Mexico, 17.4N, 93.2WRedoubt, USA, 60.5N, 152.7W Fuji, Japan, 35.4N, 138.7ELassen Peak, USA, 40.5N, 121.5W Ararat, Turkey, 39.70N, 44.28EMt.

3. Go on line to find (and label on your map) the following mountain ranges: Alps, California Coastal Ranges, Andes, Atlantic Mid-Ocean Ridge, Cascades, and Himalayas.Analysis Questions1a. What patterns do you observe in the locations of these earthquakes, volcanoes, and mountain ranges?b. Why do these events seem common in some areas on Earth and rarein others?c. Using the Earth’s plate boundaries image below compare your plotted positions with plate boundary locations. Describe any
