Moving Plates

Last week's post for Collin's Elementary mentions some news about plate tectonics, and the possible breakup of the Indo-Australian plate. Just today, our friends at have shared several new articles on the subject, including how Alfred Wegener developed the theory and how it relates to the Ring of Fire.

For those who wish to know more, the USGS This Dynamic Earth includes more details, such as the earlier work of geographers and cartographers that helped to make Wegener's work possible.
