- Sea floor spreading 1960 (Hess)
- Polar wander paths for continents 1965
- Magnetic reversals and stripes 1965 (Vine)
- Mid-ocean ridges and hot spots
- Plate tectonics: 1967
- Oceanic vs. continental plates
- Collisional (obducting and subducting) margins and divergent (ridges)
Mid Ocean Ridges (MOR) and trenches
- Are actually volcanoes (shallow water) or ocean crust/floor
- Fractures divide mid ocean ridges into segments
- Trenches: very deep water
- A lot of volcanic and biological activity

- Oceanic crust spreads and pushes into subduction zones
- Basalt in crust gets melted and mixed to become magma
- Magma get less dense and will want to push up
- The younger the ocean, the hotter the basalt, oceans are shallowest at the middle portion
(ridge) as material is being recycled
- Older oceans have more dense rocks, so they are deeper
- Continental crust is the result of the subduction, melting of oceanic crust plus sea water
Magma
- The whiter (more silica) the lighter/less dense it is
- A lot of magnetic particles in the magma that are free to rotate but will point to the north pole
- Declination: orientation of magnetic particle with respect to magnetic north (e.g. if its pointing
south, its declination is 180degrees)
- Inclination: the dip of a particle affected by latitude (steeper dip closer to the poles)
- When magnetic particles become fixed in a rock, there is a record of where the land mass was
before it moved by measuring the inclination and declination µZv}Z}o}v[

o North becomes south, south becomes north
- Lava flow will show record of when the magnetic field reversed
- Magnetic stripes

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.

As a college student living on a college budget, I love how easy it is to earn gift cards just by submitting my notes.
