Seafloor Spreading/Google Earth Discussion Questions 1. Whatis the age of the seafloor at the MidAtlantic Ridge? 2. Whatis the age of the Earth? 3. Whyis the seafloor so much younger? 4. TheJOI Learning activity asks you to calculate the rate of seafloor spreading in question 12.The wording is problematic. What have you actually calculated? 5. Whatfamous ship was theGlomar Challengernamed after? 6. UTIGresearchers are taking a Texas teacher on a research cruise to the South Scotia Sea this April and May to study the tectonic history of the region. Use Google Earth to find the South Scotia Sea.Visit the Navy FMOC site and look at models of the predicted wave and swell heights. What do the models reveal? 7. WhichGMO TEKS does this activity address?  1 Using Google Earth and ocean cores to analyze seafloor spreading.
Seafloor Spreading/Google Earth Discussion Suggested Answers 1. Whatis the age of the seafloor at the MidAtlantic Ridge? Zeroage crust.2.What is the age of the Earth? 4.6billion years. 3.Why is the seafloor so much younger? Sincethe breakup of the last supercontinent, Pangaea (Pangea), about 200 million years ago, subduction has recycled the oceanic crust that formed, and the sediments that were deposited on top, back into Earth’s interior. 4. TheJOI Learning activity asks you to calculate the rate of seafloor spreading in question 12.The wording is problematic. What have you actually calculated? The halfspreading rate. The seafloor spreading rate is double the half spreading rate.5.What famous ship was theGlomar Challengernamed after? TheHMSChallenger. TheChallengerexpedition in 1872 heralded the birth of modern oceanography.For more information, visit http//www.divediscover.whoi.edu/historyocean/challenger.html The space shuttleChallengerwas also named after HMSChallenger.6. UTIGresearchers are taking a teacher on a research cruise to the South Scotia Sea this April and May. Use Google Earth to find the South Scotia Sea. Visitthe Navy FMOC site and look at models of the predicted wave and swell heights. What do the models reveal? Very rough seas. 7.Which GMO TEKS does this activity address?See rubric.
