1.) Describe the origins of the major plate driving forces.
2.) How does paleomagnetism demonstrate that continents have moved in the course of time?
3.) Describe two methods for measuring plate motion. How does the angle of subduction relate to the rate of plate movement?
4.) Explain how continental rifting begins. Describe the sedimentary environments associated with this process.
5.) Why do deep-focus earthquakes occur along subduction zones?
6.) How does theburial of dead plant material affect atmospheric CO2 and O2?
7.) What do carbonand oxygen stable isotope studies tell us about the past?
8.) Describe onepositive feedback and one negative feedback process that influence globalwarming.
9.) How do glaciers promote chemical weathering? What controls the ratio of Mg to Ca in the oceans? How does this affect the mineralogy of limestones?
10.) Explain how ageologist might distinguish an orogen added to the continent primarily by accretionfrom one added primarily by stabilization.
