The tsunami models are pretty interesting. They are very accurate. One variable is how large the rupture
at the trench will be. That controls the amplitude of the wave - and that of course influences how far it

a) What type of tectonics formed this volcano? What plates are involved? How does it
affect the region's topography and how does that relate to the ecology (wildlife, etc.)?

This one was a little bit more of a challenging question to sort out. Like in the tectonic analyses
questions, you are told you feel an earthquake, and are asked if there could be a tsunami. Here you can

Africa is starting to be rifted apart. It hasn't gone to completion yet but it is being
'stretched'. and there are volcanoes as a result. Mt. Kilimanjaro, for example! (If anyone

The question is about the volcanoes in Costa Rica - using Arenal as an example. It has
been active recently.
As with all the volcano questions, it all comes down to what the tectonics are and the type
of crust that the magma is rising through.

This is not only about our area, but it should be a good
way of pulling together subduction zone quake
information. It is also an interesting tale of how the
hypothesis was proven correct.

What is magnetism?
Magnetic phenomena result from:
forces between moving electric charges
Electricity and magnetism are linked: electromagnetism
1) an electric current (moving charge) generates a magnetic field
2) moving a conductor through a magnetic fie

- Bob Dylan
A planets climate is controlled by complex interconnections
between many different dynamic systems.
In this module we will focus on:
Heat flow, hydrothermal circulation and life
Cooling through the lithosphere
Convection plays the major role within the
moving heat conducted from the core
efficiently through the mantle
