1. What can scientists learn from magnetic striping patterns? Select the three correct answers.

a. the exact location of the next earthquake along the California coast
b. the speed of one plate as it subducts below another plate*****
c. the cause of magnetic pole reversals
d. the direction plates are moving relative to each other*****
e. the location of ancient faults caused by seismic activity.*****
f. the year the next magnetic reversal will take place

2. Identify the factors that cause magnetic stripes to form along the ocean floor. Select the two correct answers.

a. Plates move as new rock forms, which causes magnetic direction to skew away from normal.
b. Magma acquires the magnetic direction present on Earth when it hardens into rock*****
c. Rock forming at the oceanic ridge pushes older rock outward in both directions.*****
d. Magnetic direction of rock changes as Earth’s magnetic poles drift.

3. Which other information is needed to calculate the speed a plate is moving if the width of the magnetic stripe is known"?

a. the length of time between polar shifts*****
b. the width of the adjacent stripes
c. the direction the iron particles are aligned
d. he distance from the mid-oceanic ridge

i know these are the correct answers i just took the quick check just wanted to share the answers to be nice enjoy

  1. I had a different question order but these are 100% right!
    1. Rock forming at the oceanic ridge pushes older rock outward in both directions & Magma acquires the magnetic direction present on Earth when it hardens into rock
    2.The direction plates are moving relative to each other & The speed of one plate as it subducts below another plate & The location of ancient faults caused by seismic activity
    3.The length of time between polar shifts
