Part A: Plate Tectonics

Your y-axis values should be in reverse with 0 m (sea level) at the top and 5500 m (or greater) at the bottom.

Include another y-axis on the right end of the cross-section.

There is no x-axis label and values for the cross-section.

The legend should only contain the vertical exaggeration, everything else would be labelled on the cross-section.

For 2e and 2f, you should also use arrows to indicate the directions of spreading/convection. Plate Tectonics

For your VE, make sure you state what your HS and VS are before calculating the exaggeration.

In question 3, there is a typo in the manual. At the end of the sentence, it should say (question 2e NOT b).

Part B

Refer to map 7.2, the PowerPoint on eClass and your textbook to answer question 1-7.

For question 6, you would write a sentence or 2 to summarize what was written in question 5. For example: what are active margins are mainly associated with and what subduction zones are mainly associated to.

For question 7, write a process (try to be specific about the type if it’s volcanism or earthquake) associated with that zone and then write at least 1 type of landform associated with the process.

Part C

Use the amendments (table and graph) provided to you on eClass, not in the manual!

Make sure to have three categories for your earthquakes (Minor, Great, and Mega) – use different colors and/or symbols.

For question 2, you may or may not see a clear pattern; if not then describe what you see in general (ex: what type of earthquakes are mainly at the surface).

For question 3, I highly suggest looking at map 7.2 to see what processes and plates are associated with Chile. I highly suggest doing the cross-section and graph in Part C by hand
