Describe each of the following and explain how it contributed to our current acceptance of plate tectonic theory:
Divergent Plate Boundaries
Transform Plate Boundaries
Convergent Plate Boundaries
(PT= plate tectonics) Divergent and convergent boundaries make up 2 ends of the plate tectonic "conveyor belt" meaning that as new crust forms at the divergent boundary, crust elsewhere at a convergent boundary (subduction zone) must be "consumed" and recycled back into the mantle. As continents are on these moving plates (and we CAN measure these ...
Answer defines some of the basic aspects of plate tectonics and how they relate to the support of plate tectonic theory
