a) convergent boundary b) divergent boundary c) ocean trench d) subduction zone
Oceanic crust at a mid-ocean ridge
a) younger than crust near a trench b) older than crust near a trench c) much older than continental crust d) about the same age as continental crust
Which of these did Wegner use to support continental drift
a) similar rocks on different continents b) spreading on the ocean floor c) convection currents in the lithosphere d) magnetic reversal recorded on Pangea
