Unit 10 - Dynamic Earth Review Sheet

Plate Tectonics
o Be able to use the chart on page 5 to determine the different types of
plate boundaries and their movements.
o Describe the theory of plate tectonics.
o What are the major pieces of evidence that support the theory?
o What is the driving force behind plate tectonics and where does it take
place?
o What are the three types of plate boundaries and what features are
created at each type?
o What is the difference between a volcano and a hot spot?

Layers of the Earth
o Be able to use the chart on page 10 to determine the different properties
of the layers of the Earth.
o Describe the major differences between continental and oceanic crust?
o What happens to the density of the Earth as you increase depth?
o What happens to the pressure of the Earth as you increase depth?
o What happens to the temperature of the Earth as you increase depth?
o What is each layer composed of and what phase of matter is each layer
in?
o How did scientists determine the properties of each layer?
o What is the heat source for the center of the Earth?

Earthquakes
o Be able to use the p and s wave chart of page 11 in order to determine the
different seismic wave times and epicenter distance.
o What is an earthquake and where do they usually occur?
o What is the ring of fire and where is it located?
o What is a fault and what are the three types of movement?
o What is the difference between an epicenter and a focus?
o What are the 3 types of seismic waves, how do they move and what
phases of matter can they move through?
o What is the difference between a seismograph and a seismogram?
o Be able to read a seismogram.
o How many seismic stations do we need in order to determine the
epicenter of an earthquake?

Tsunamis
o What is a tsunami?
o Describe the different ways they can be created.
o What should you do before, during, and after any natural disaster?
