This set of lecture notes discusses the occurrence and tectonic settings of igneous rocks near convergent plate margins. A discussion of petrography includes major element composition, calc-alkaline trends in ternary diagrams, trace element variations, isotopes to distinguish magma sources, and the origin of igneous rocks at convergent margins. The lecture notes include helpful illustrations, maps ... Full description.

This data tip describes the science behind the tsunamis caused by the great earthquake of December 26, 2004, which caused catastrophic damage and loss of life throughout the Indian Ocean basin. The discussion centers on how tsunamis are generated and how great quakes and resulting tsunamis occur at subducting plate boundaries. Links to more detailed information are embedded in the text. An exercise ... Full description.

In this activity, students will be joining with current geoscientists in becoming a part of the research community that is exploring and revolutionizing the theory of plate tectonics. Through the use of mapping skills and inquiry-based problem solving, students will predict and then analyze the layout of the tectonic plates that form the ocean floors. They will also compare the depth of various regions ... Full description.

This site presents changes in the crust and climate of Earth by investigating aspects such as the rock cycle, rock dating, climate and variables that affect the climate, and other processes that change the crust of the Earth. These topics include: the atmosphere and surface of Earth; volcanoes and earthquakes; igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks; and weathering and erosion. There are also ... Full description.

This report contains true stories that illustrate how to survive (and how not to survive) a tsunami. It is meant for people who live, work, or play along coasts that tsunamis may strike. The stories are personal accounts selected from interviews with people who survived a Pacific Ocean tsunami generated by the magnitude 9.5 earthquake that occurred along the coast of Chile on May 22, 1960. Important ... Full description.

Comment on this resource
The earths crust is constantly in motion. Sections of the crust, called plates, push against each other due to forces from the molten interior of the earth. The areas where these plates collide often have increased volcanic and earthquake activity. These images show the locations of the plates and their boundaries in the earths crust. Convergent boundaries are areas where two plates are pushing against ... Full description.

This website contains paleogeographic and plate tectonic reconstructions organized by geologic period. Users select a geologic period, and receive a summary of the major events that occurred during that period, a paleogeographic map, tectonics and sedimentation of the North Atlantic region, and global tectonic features from that time.
