EESA06 Quiz 1 Page 1 User Celia Duong Submitted 1/27/11 7:12 PM Name Quiz1_Lec1and2_Ch1_through_4 Status Completed Score 32 out of 35 points Time Elapsed 48 minutes, and 6 seconds out of 1 hour Question 1 The movements of the continents can be figured out in real time using ___. Correct Answer: GPS Question 2 Please examine this figure. Which of the following statements about this figure is FALSE? Correct Answer: c. this convergent boundary shows two oceanic plates coming together Question 3 Wegener suggested that the continents move about by plowing through the seafloor. This mechanism was accepted by most scientists until later when Tuzo Wilson suggested plate tectonics. Correct Answer: Disagree Question 4 Looking for oil and gas is primarily the job of an exploration and mining geoscientist. Correct Answer: False Question 5 Seismic P waves travel faster in ___. Correct Answer: b. Mantle Question 6 What does differentiation mean? Correct Answer: c. the heavier materials making up planet Earth sunk toward the centre of the planet to form the core, intermediate density materials formed the mantle and light materials formed the crust Question 7 Liquefaction is ___. Correct Answer: b. when a water saturated soil or sediment turns into a liquid, often due to earthquake shaking Question 8 Correct Answer: PLEASE USE THE DROP DOWN MENU (arrowhead). Primary waves - are body waves that vibrate parallel to the direction of wave propagation. Secondary waves - are body waves that have particles vibrating perpendicular to the direction of wave propagation. EESA06 Quiz 1 Page 2 Love waves - are surface waves with a side to side motion. Rayleigh waves - are surface waves that are similar to ocean waves and cause a rolling motion on the Earths surface. Question 9 What is shown in this image? Correct Answer: a. transform fault Question 10 Please use the DROP DOWN MENUS (arrowheads) to choose your answers. [i] are often caused by [j]. For instance, the one in Indonesia/Sumatra was caused by an [k] resulting from the subduction of the Burma plate beneath the India plate. Correct Answer: tsunami are often caused by earthquake(s). For instance, the one in Indonesia/Sumatra was caused by an earthquake(s) resulting from the subduction of the Burma plate beneath the India plate. Question 11 Please match the following statements with the convergent boundary type that best suits each of them. Answer Question Correct Match Selected Match This type of convergent boundary will form a volcanic island arc. B. This type of convergent boundary will form a continental volcanic arc. A. This type of convergent boundary will form a mountain chain like the Himalayas. C. Question 12 The seafloor is as old as planet Earth. Correct Answer: Disagree Question 13 Convergent plate boundaries are more likely to have deep focus earthquakes than are divergent plate boundaries. Correct Answer: Agree EESA06 Quiz 1 Page 3 Question 14 In which plate tectonic setting are we most likely to find the deepest ocean trenches? Correct Answer: c. convergent boundaries Question 15 Please use the DROP DOWN MENUS (arrowheads) to choose your answers. Meteorites are useful because they are [a]. The most common type of meteorites is [b] which are kind of like the [c] of planet Earth. The [d] type is most commonly found in museums, and it is more like the [e] of planet Earth. Correct Answer: Please use the DROP DOWN MENUS (arrowheads) to choose your answers. Meteorites are useful because they are older than Earth's surface rocks. The most common type of meteorites is stony which are kind of like the mantle of planet Earth. The iron type is most commonly found in museums, and it i
