1.) What is the relationship between the width of ten-million-year-old ocean floor at a ridge and the spreading rate at that ridge?
2.) Younger ocean floor is warmer, and therefore more buoyant on the underlying asthenosphere than older ocean floor. Given this, which of the three ridges you looked at in this section is probably the widest? What is the relationship between spreading rate and ridge width?
The ___________ is probably the widest of the three
Ridges with (faster/slower) spreading rates tend to be wider than ridges with (faster/slower) spreading rates.
