Mid-Atlantic Ridge, East Pacific Rise, Aleutian Trench, Mariana Trench, Pacific Plate, North American Plate, etc. ) -Know the 3 kinds of plate boundaries (convergent, divergent, and transform) and What makes them distinct from one another. -Know the difference between an active and passive continental margin. -Study maps from Lab 2. SELECTED QUESTIONS FROM LAB 2/PART 1 -s Swlpe to vlew nexr page Study the questions from Lab 2/Part 1.

Will select a handful of questions from there. OCEAN PROFILE (CROSS SECTION) -Know What the

cross section of an ocean floor looks like (i. e. from North America to Africa). -Know where the continental slopes, abyssal Plains, and mid- Atlantic ridge is located with respect to an ocean floor profile. CARBONATE COMPENSATION DEPTH (CCD) -Know What is, where it is, the effect it has on Calcium Carbonate and why it has that effect on it. -Read description of CCD in Lab 3. EMPEROR’S SEAMOUNT CHAIN (HAWAIAN ISLANDS) Know What is and where it’s located. Look over exercise involving his feature in Lab 3. OCEAN SEDIMENTS/MATERIALS OF THE SEAFLOOR -Know the different kinds of sediments (Terrigenous and Biogenous). -Terrigenous (sand, silt, ash, dust, etc. ) -Know how terrigenous sediments are deposited into the ocean. -Biogenous (i. e. calcareous ooze, siliceous ooze) -Know the source of these Biogenous sediments and how they are deposited onto the ocean floor as ooze. -Know about Red Clays, Manganese Nodules, and Exposed Basalts. -Study descriptions of these sediments in Lab 3.

Know how to calculate the time of certain sediments t descriptions of these sediments in Lab 3. -Know how to calculate the time of certain sediments to accumulate given their amount, and rate of accumulation. (Recall last 2 problems on Lab 3). -Overall, know where these sediments can be found on the ocean floor. SEAFLOOR SPREADING/SEAFLOOR MAGNETIC POLARITY REVERSALS -Know how to calculate half ; full spreading rates. -Know the relationship between rock age and distance to the spreading center. -Know What the deep ocean floor is composed of (I. e. What is the dominant rock).

Practice corresponding exercises on Lab 3. MICROFOSSILS/MICROPALEONTOLOGY -Know the morphological distinctions between Planktic and Benthic Foraminifera and why they are shaped the way they are (Be able to draw What they generally look like). -Practice the exercise on how to construct ancient environments using microfossils (Number 5 from Lab 4). ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: -Know how to do unit conversions properly. -When dealing with units always write them down next to the numerical value. -Please show your work neatly when doing problems that involve calculations 31_1f3
