  8. the Ocearn Floor Volcanic Island When volcanoes on the ocean floor erupt, they can create mountains so high that their peaks break the surface of the ocean. As the lava cools and hardens, an island forms Mid-Ocean ridge The mid-ocean ridge consists of many peaks along both sides of a central valley. This chain of undersea mountains runs all around the world. Continental slope A steady indine marks the continental slope. Continental slopes in the Pacific Ocean are Continental shelf This gradually sloping area width varies from just a few 1,300 kilometers from shore. borders each arth's oceans are thousands of kilometers wide. To show the width of the ocean floor in this illustration, the vertical and horizontal steeper than those in the Atlantic Ocean. Note: Because the kilmeters to as much as vertical scale is exaggerated, the continental slope in this illustration appears steeper than it realy is scales are not the same. The vertical scale, showing depth, has been stretched. The horizontal scale, showing distances, has been squeezed. Continental shelf Continental slope Mountains whose peaks do not break the surface of the ocean 6 water above them are E called seamounts Abyssal plain Thick layers of sediment, formed by the sunken remains of dead organisms from the surface cover these vast, flat plains These canyons in- clude the deepest spots on Earth. The Mariana Trench in the Pacific is 11 kilometers deep. Width of ocean: thousands of kilometers


  9. Rifting makes oceans widen Continental plate 20mm/year Rising material


  10. MOR Mid Oceanic Ridge *Rising limb of current breaks the Ocean crust * Basaltic eruption * Accumulation of lava - ridge-> PlatePlate MOR *New Oceanic crust **Divergent limb - expansion of ocean crust. Oceanic ridges are underwater mountain ranges that contain a rift down their center where magma seeps up, forming new oceanic crust.


  11. PaleoMagnetism is the study of the record of the Earth's magnetic field in rocks, sediment, or archeological materials. Certain minerals in rocks lock-in a record of the direction and intensity of the magnetic field when they form. O This record provides information on the past behavior of Earth's magnetic field and the past location of tectonic plates.

  22. Importance of mountain building process Understanding of the origin and evolution of earth's crust. At the time of the formation of the earth crust, first basaltic crust of ocean - breaking and melting - a lighter continental crust developed Collide with one another a larger land mass. The joints - fold-mountains.
