Focus your textbook reading on
Chapter 5, Volcanoes, Sections 5.2-5.3, 5.5, also review pgs. 132-133
Including Chapter Summary and Review Questions 1-5
* folding and faulting
* mass wasting
* Igneous Rock > metamorphic rock
* increased pressure and temp due to tectonic stress
* divergent boundaries
* shallow earthquakes occur in a linear pattern along divergent boundaries
Rivers and Streams
o How does stream energy relate to erosion, transportation, and deposition?
Gradient and discharge define the energy of the stream
What is the difference between a down-cutting stream, a braided stream,
and a meandering stream
ALL OF THE PREVIOUS STUDY GUIDES plus
o On which plate boundaries do we expect volcanoes to occur? Which plate
boundaries typically coincide with human population?
Convergent boundaries and divergent boundaries. Convergent boundaries are
Core: The interior part of Earth beginning at a depth of 2,900 km that probably consists
mostly of iron and nickel
Outer core: 1 of 2 parts of the core in is the outer liquid layer that consists of Iron and
Inner core: t
Uplift Weathering erosion
Weathering: The physical breakdown and chemical alteration of rocks and minerals at or
near Earths surface.
Erosion: The removal of weathered materials from their source area by running water,

Compositional layers of the Earth
o How does the core differ from the rest of Earths layers composition wise?
The core is solid iron and very dense.
