Deep Sea Hydrothermal Vents

A hydrothermal vent is a fissure in the planet's surface through which geothermally heated water erupts.

Folding (intermediate)

Lateral compressive forces cause rocks to form folds. This is how fold mountains are formed.

Formation of stratovolcanoes

Stratovolcanoes consist of layers of volcanic ash, debris and lava.

Geyser

A geyser is a spring characterized by intermittent discharge of water and steam.

Hotspots

Hotspots are areas of the Earth´s crust where magma often rises to the surface and causes volcanic activity.

Continental drift on a geological timescale

The Earth's continents have been in constant motion during the history of the planet.

Earth

The Earth is a rocky planet with a solid crust and oxygen in its atmosphere.

Faulting (intermediate)

Vertical forces can break up layers of rock into fault blocks, which then move vertically along the fracture planes.

Folding (advanced)

Lateral compressive forces cause rocks to form folds. This is how fold mountains are formed.
