Q24. What happened to the strips of clay as they were pushed from opposite ends?
Answer: The strips of clay buckled upward.
Q25. If the strips of clay represent the Earth’s lithosphere, what do you think is formed in the lithosphere?
Answer: Mountains are formed in the lithosphere.
Q26. What other geologic event could take place with this type of plate movement aside from your answer in Q25?
Answer: Earthquakes will occur due to the collision of the two plates. (Since there is no subduction, only shallow earthquakes will happen)
Q27. In terms of the consequences on the Earth’s lithosphere, how will you differentiate this type of convergent plate boundary with the other two?
Answer: Since the two plates involved are both continental plates there is
no subduction process (because both plates are low in density). As a result, mountains are formed instead of volcanoes.
