The theory of plate tectonics states that the Earth’s lithosphere is broken up into many different pieces separated by jagged cracks. These are called the tectonic plates. They are in slow, constant motion pushed by the convection currents in Earth’s asthenosphere. This theory explains the process of sea floor spreading at mid-ocean ridges, and subduction […]
