Describe the relationship, if any, of the boundaries in #1 to the features that you labeled in #2.

Review the directions at the end of this document. Then, complete exercises 1-6. When you have completed the map, save it to your computer as a PDF.
1. Label each of the boundaries listed using the letters or shapes indicated: divergent (D), convergent (C), and transform fault boundaries (TF).
2. Label each of the features listed: continental shelf, (SF) continental slope (SL), abyssal plain (AP), seamount (SM), trench (TR), and a hot spot (HS).
3. Label Iceland (IL), Azores (AS), Surtsey (SS), St. Helena (SH), Ascension (AS), and Tristan de Cunha (TC).
4. Using the USGS Earthquake site, label the quakes over a 5.0 magnitude (star: ★) and the quake closest to your location (infinity: ∞). Note that first you may need to update your settings – In the upper right hand corner of the page, you will see an icon that looks like a wheel or gear. Click it and select 7-days, All Magnitudes, Worldwide. The icon with the three lines to the left of the gear provides you with a list of quakes starting with the most recent.
5. Label the following: Rockies (RK), Himalayas (HM), Andes (AN), and Appalachians (AP).
6. Label the following: Hawai’i (HI), Mt. St. Helens (ST), Etna (ET), Pelee (PE), Kilimanjaro (KI), Pinatubo (PI), and Fuji (FJ).
Part 2: Questions
Make sure that you answer each question thoroughly in a separate document.
A. Describe the relationship, if any, of the boundaries in #1 to the features that you labeled in #2.
B. Describe the relationship, if any, of the boundaries in #1 to the islands that you labeled in #3.
C. Describe the relationship, if any, of the boundaries in #1 to the quakes that you labeled in #4.
D. Describe the relationship, if any, of the boundaries in #1 to the mountain chains that you labeled in #5.
E. Describe the relationship, if any, of the boundaries in #1 to the volcanoes that you labeled in #5.
F. What do you think controls the appearance and form of the continental margin?
G. How do you think that the mountain chains in #5 formed?
H. Reflect back on your answer to questions C and E. Based on those responses, does it seem logical that Kilimanjaro is a much bigger volcano than any of the others, excluding Hawai’i? Hawai’i is a different type of volcano. Be sure to explain your answer.
