SO461, Quiz 1A, Fall 2014

Figure 1.   Vectors show the resultant motion of Plate 1 if Plate 2 is held stationary.

What kind of plate boundary is shown, and how do you know?

 

List three lines of evidence that would tell you where the Euler pole for this motion is located.


 

Figure 2.  Vectors showing the motion of Plates 1 and 2 in the same reference frame.

 

What is the magnitude and direction of the motion between the two plates.

 

What kind of plate boundary is this?
