Between the Mantle and Core at 2900km

Where are the boundaries the same for the major chemical compositions of the Earth and the major physical states of the Earth?

Major physical states (because these are the layers that are actually involved in the tectonic movement.)

Which is better to explain tectonic movement, the major chemical compositions of the earth or the major physical states?

Crust, Moho, Mantel, Core

List the layers of the major chemical compositions of the earth from the surface to the middle.

Lithosphere, Asthenosphere, Deep Mantle, Outer Core, Inner Core

List the layers of the major physical states of the earth from the surface to the middle.

Divergent, Convergent, Transform

List the three main types of plate boundaries.

a new sea floor is formed

What happens when a divergent plate boundary is under water?

Ocean-Ocean, Ocean-Continent, Continent-Continent

Name the three sub-types of Convergent Plate Boundaries.

Convergent Boundary

At which of the three main boundary types would one find a "subduction zone"?

Compression

What type of stress would be expected at a Convergent Boundary?

Tension

What type of stress would be expected at a Divergent Boundary?

Shear

What type of stress would be expected at a Transform Boundary?

Mid-Atlantic Ridge

Where would you expect to find oceanic spreading ridge?

East African Plate

Where would you expect to find Continental Rift?

South Pacific

Where would you expect to find Ocean-Ocean Convergence?

Himalayas

Where would you expect to find Continent-Continent Convergence?

Western South American Plate

Where would you expect to find Oceanic-Continent Convergence?

San Andreas Fault

Where would you expect to find Transform Faulting?

The East Coast of North America

Where would you expect to find a Passive Margin?

Hawaii and Yellowstone National Park

Where would you expect to find magmatism that is not associated with a plate margin ("Hot Spot")?

subduction

At a plate boundary undergoing ocean-continent convergence the resulting process is....
