Principles of Plate Tectonic Movement
2002 words 4 pages

Geologists have defined plate tectonic movement as a natural scientific theory which explains the origin and the motion of large-scale movement of all big larger and smaller plates which exist in the lithosphere of the earth (Kuzmin & Yarmolyuk, 2016). There are major and minor plates which exist on the lithosphere and have been in […]

How Are Mountains Formed?Mountains are formed over long periods of time by forces of the earth. Mountains just don’t appear in any place. Most are formed when plates, or huge pieces of the Earth’s crust, pull and push against each other. Greatmountain ranges are formed by the movement of tectonic plates. Convectioncurrents deep in the […]

This lab uses earthquake data to construct profiles of two convergent boundaries: the Tonga Trench and the Peru-Chile Trench. Where two tectonic plates converge, if one or both of the plates is an oceanic lithosphere, a subduction zone will form. When crust is formed at a mid-ocean ridge, it is hot and buoyant meaning it […]
