Step 1 of 3

Chapter 7: Plate Tectonics 1. Plate Boundaries  Plates move apart at divergent boundaries (constructive margins)  Sea floor spreading ­ upwelling of hot material from the mantle creates new seafloor along mid­ocean ridges  Continental rifting ­ continents are separated by an ocean basin  Plates move together at convergent boundaries (destructive)  Subduction ­ oceanic lithosphere descends beneath an overriding plate, eventually to be reabsorbed into the mantle  Continental collision ­ mountains are uplifted as continents collide, because the lithosphere is to buoyant to sink/subduct  Plates grind past each other at transform boundaries (conservative)  Offset mid­ocean ridge segments  Cut through continental crust 2. Hot Spots  The term “hot spot” refers to an area of volcanism that is situated above a mantle plume (cylindrically shaped upwelling of hot rock)  Plate motion pulls volcanoes off the active plume  Produces a “hot­spot track” of extinct volcanoes Chapter 2: Minerals 1. Minerals  Earth’s elements combine to form minerals  Each element has a unique atomic structure  Protons (+) and neutrons (0) are located within the nucleus  Electrons (­) surround the nucleus  The atomic number is the number of protons in the nucleus  Atoms bond to one another to become more stable  Ionic ­ gain or lose outer valence electrons to form ions  Covalent ­ share electrons to achieve electrical neutrality  Metallic ­ valence electrons are free to migrate among atoms  A mineral is a substance that meets the following criteria:  Naturally occurring and solid (created within the Earth)  Generally inorganic (non­living)  Can be represented by a chemical formula (recipe of elements)  Orderly crystalline structure (arrangement of elements) 2. Resources  Feldspar is the most common mineral in the Earth’s crust  Ores contain metal­rich minerals and can be mined for profit  Resources can be removed from the ground by open­pit mines and underground mines  Mineral extraction and processing leaves a big footprint  Minerals make up all of Earth’s rock and sediment
