Question Answer
Continental Drift The theory that all of ze continents were once a super continent called Pangea
Pangaea Ze supercontinent
Seafloor spreading Ze process, in which volcanic magma rises to Ze surface, and solidifies, creating more land under Ze sea.
Plate tectonics Ze theory zat Ze lithosphere is divided into tectonic platez, which move around on Ze asthenosphere.
Convergent Boundaries When two tectonic plates collide, the boundary between them is a convergent boundary
Divergent Boundaries When two tectonic plates separate, the boundary between zem is called a divergent boundary
Transform Boundaries When two tectonic plates slide past each other, the boundary between zem is called a transform boundary
Convection currents Ze changing in density in circular motions that move the tectonic plates.
Wegener A scientist who discovered the theory of continental drift.
Hot Spot Volcanically active spots on Ze erf that are far from plate boundaries
Volcano Are of Ze erf where magma and volcanic gasses pass through
Mid-Ocean Ridge Mountain chains that form where where tectonic plates pull apart.
Subduction a geological process that takes place at convergent boundaries of tectonic plates where one plate moves under another and is forced or sinks due to gravity into the mantle.
Vent Cracks on the erfa??s surface that release magma.
