## The most prominent feature of ocean topography discovered in the 1960s was: A. seamounts B. volcanic activity at the ocean bottom C. subduction zones D. a mountain ridge which circles the earth

The western part of South America is a region that is geologically very active. This is due to the boundaries between the South American tectonic plate with the Nazca tectonic plate, and also with the Pacific tectonic plate. Since both, the Nazca and the Pacific plates are oceanic plates, they …

## Think about an igneous rock at the top of a mountain. If this rock went through the whole rock cycle, number the steps that would follow. 1. Step 1 Regolith is dumped into some type of reservoir, usually water, by deposition. 2. Step 2 Metamorphic rock begins to melt back into magma. 3. Step 3 Regolith is transported or eroded by rain or wind. 4. Step 4 Rock is broken down into regolith by weathering. 5. Step 5 Layers deposited begin to compact and cement together to form sedimentary rock. 6. Step 6 Sedimentary rock is buried deeper into the earth’s crust. The intense heat and pressure begins metamorphism and the rock turns into metamorphic rock. 7. Step 7 Magma is resurfaced from volcanic activity, cools, and becomes igneous rock.

Answer: The correct sequence according to the question is steps- 4→1→3→5→6→2→7. Explanation: The given steps show that how the rocks are recycled from one form to another form due to certain factors like weathering over geological time scale which was explained by James Hutton and he termed this concept as …

## The angle of elevation from the bottom of a scenic gondola ride to the top of a mountain is 22. If the vertical distance from the bottom to the top of the mountain is 689 feet and the gondola moves at a speed of 130 feet per minute, how long does the ride last? Round to the nearest minute.

Answer:  The correct option is (C). 10 = square root of the quantity of x minus 8 all squared plus y minus 9 all squared Step-by-step explanation:  Given that the segment AB has point A located at (8, 9). The distance from A to B is 10 units. We are …

## The mountain shown is composed of deformed sedimentary layers. they are located near a tectonic plate boundary and are still increasing in elevation due to –

The correct answer is – Andes Mountains. The Andes Mountain Range is a result of a oceanic-continental convergence. This mountain range stretches alongside the western coast of the South American continent, in close proximity of the convergent boundary between the South American tectonic plate, which is continental one, and the …

## Because of isostasy a mountain will ultimately _____. answers

Desert, rainforest, and rain are places that can have its own weather conditions and are not elevated highly from the ground.  Desert for instance is usually a hot place since it doesn’t have anything to shield the sun rays. Rainforests also can have its own weather because of the surrounding …

## During the past half hour a restaurant has had 23 orders for Pepsi and 15 orders for Mountain Dew how many more orders have there been for Pepsi then for Mountain Dew?

Recall your d = rt, distance = rate * time let’s say the boat’s rate is “b” in still water, and the current’s rate is “c” as the boat goes upstream, is not really going “b” fast, the water is not still anyway, is going much slower, is going ” …
