Prepare at least 350 word paper describing the basic theories associated with the creation of the ocean floor.
Include the following in your paper:
- Identify divergent, convergent, and transform plate boundaries and list the outstanding features of each boundary. (Remember that convergent boundaries have 3 different sub-types. Discuss all 3 sub-types.)
- List one type of natural event that occurs as a direct result of plate boundary interactions.
- Compare (tell what’s the same) and contrast (tell what’s different) plate tectonics and the theory of continental drift. Does one idea seem more plausible than the other? If so, why? Base your findings on the natural event you identified earlier in the paper.
Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
Reference a minimum of two outside sources,
other than your text, such as credible websites and articles that
support your findings. When you include important information from a
source, be sure to cite that source in the body of the paper (this is
different than the list of references at the end)
