PART III - RELATIVE PLATE MOTION (15 POINTS)


Instructions: In the map below, you are

looking down on three lithospheric plates. The darker plates (Plates 1 and 2) are moving in the direction indicated by the white arrows. Plate 3 is stationary (not moving). Plates 1 & 2 are denser than Plate 3. Thinking of relative plate motions, choose the appropriate letter(s) from the map to match the tectonic feature listed below. Be aware that not all letters will be useable as an answer. Note: Make sure you have watched the last lecture in this module before starting this part of the assignment.
