  • It varies between 5-50km deep (3, 5)
  • Other then earthquakes what occurs on the boundry of a tectonic plate (9)
  • the heat in the mantle causes what to flow (10, 8)
  • We think its made from iron and nickel (3, 4)
  • What do Convection currents make tectonic plates do (5)
  • What happerns before an eruption when moltern rock rises up in chambers near the surface causeing the ground to bulge slightly (4, 10)
  • What happerns when the plates move suddenly (10)
  • What moves a few Cm a year (8, 6)
