Find an event that occurred this week that moves you. you must be able to relate it to the current chapter in some way-creativity is welcome. for instance, let's say you read about the war in afghanistan and parts of pakistan. after reading the article, you check a world map and find that some remote parts of pakistan are near the himalayan mountain range. you will discover in chapter 12 that the himalayas were formed by a convergence of two continental plates, the indian plate and the eurasian plate, which causes a convergence zone that resulted in mountain uplift. and, voila! , the himalayans are formed remember, geography is all about connections. the physical environment always sets the context for human events, and, often, they have a more direct influence than you may initially imagine. for example, you're not worried about a tsunami if you live in south dakota, but you are much more aware of the holocene glaciations than you would be if you lived in arizona (that's in chapter 17)

  1. The answer to your question is C:the Himalayan mountains. brother!

    Hope this helps! God bless and if it's ok I would really love brainiest

  2. Assuming you need these questions answered, due to the incorrect marks at the bottom of each one..? 
    Let's dig in! 

    3. The longest range of mountains stretches ALL around the Earth, and its located along the ocean floors! 

    4. Seismometers measure motion within the ground, also known as seismic waves! They can show earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and even show where explosives are going off, or have gone off. 

    6. It is the least explosive! 

    8.  Convergent and divergent boundaries.

    9. The answer is D, two oceanic plates converge. This is where chain volcanoes lie. 

    17. Oceanic-continental

    20.  C! Paleomagnetism, its the science of studying the magnetic properties of different rocks, soils, sediments, and such! 

  3. The convergence between a continental plate and an oceanic plate is subduction process where the denser oceanic plate force the thinner continental plate to sink into the mantle.

    Option (D)


    The type of volcanism formed the Andean Mountains in South America is due to subduction process.  It is due to the converging of Nazca Plate over Antarctic Plate due to gravity and made them to sink below the South American Plate.

    This process still continues today and due to the activity, it causes volcanic eruptions and earthquakes in that region. It was reported about 150 - 160 (approx.) active volcanoes in the Volcanic Belt of Andes.

  4. convergence between a continental plate and an oceanic plate


    The Andean Mountain Range has been formed because of volcanic activity. This has happened because of a convergent plate boundary between two plates.

    More specifically, the convergent plate boundary is between the continental South American plate and the oceanic Nazca plate. The Nazca plate is lower, denser, heavier, and it is moving below the South American plate, creating a subduction zone.

    Where the boundary is between the two plates, the mantle manages to push through magma upwards through the cracks in the crust. This magma managed to get to the surface, lift up the land and create volcanoes, creating a continental volcanic arc parallel to the plate boundary, over time becoming the enormous Andean Mountain Range.
