SO461 Fall 2015 Quiz 1
Figure 1. Vectors show the resultant motion of Plate 2 if Plate 1 is held stationary.
What kind of plate boundary is shown, and how do you know?
If this were the motion of Plate 1 if Plate 2 were held stationary, would your answer change?
Where is the closer Euler pole for this motion located, and how do you know.
Figure 2. Vectors showing the motion of Plates 1 and 2 in the same reference frame.
Show the magnitude and direction of the motion between the two plates, if plate 2 is held fixed.
What kind of plate boundary is this?
Can you predict the location of the Euler pole for the motion between the two plates?
