    based on the scientific theory of plate tectonics that cases the large-scale motion of the planet’s lithosphere. The same theory also explains how Mount Everest, a part of the Himalayas, was affected. Nepal’s seismic nature and the Himalayas are connected through the collision of the Indian Plate and the Eurasian plate. First and foremost, plate tectonic theory deals with the idea that lithospheric plates or tectonic plates move around the crust. Tectonic plates are slabs of the Earth’s lithosphere

  • The Exploring Of Earth : The Earthquakes Of The Earth

    tension gets released from inside the crust of the earth. Tectonic plates move alongside and past each other but they do not always move smoothly and when they get stuck it causes an earthquake because the pressure builds up then the pressure is finally released (see source 1). This movement from the plates forces waves of energy to come to the surface of the Earth. Plates can also converge into each other, this is when two plates collide and one goes beneath one and creates an earthquake. How does

    boundary between the two tectonic plates and the activity of Iceland’s own hotspot or mantle flume. Movement of these plates caused earthquakes and volcanism. This allowed Iceland to be the largest portion of the mid- ocean ridge system that is above sea level. The beginning of the start of sea floor spreading in Iceland occurred about sixty million years ago when the North-Atlantic Ocean began to open. At this time, the North American plate along with the Eurasian plate moved east and westward at approximately

    material erupted from the main volcanic vent. Also well known for a composite volcano. The formation of all stratovolcanoes takes place on boundaries between two tectonic plates where an oceanic plate is subducting into the mantle beneath the continental plate. In this case, the two plates involved are the Eurasian plate and the African plate. These types of volcanoes have more of a violent eruption. #2 These are the coordinates: 37.734oN, 15.004oE. Mt.Etna is specifically located on the East coast of

    The theory of plate tectonics was first developed by Alfred Wegener. He concluded that the continents seem to have a similar shape and could potentially fit together. This suggested that they were at one time joined together as part of 2 super continents called Gondwanaland and Laurasia was in the north. This theory was said to be proven by the discovery of fossilised remains of a mesosaurus that were found on the coasts of Brazil and Gabon. Sea floor spreading is another theory that supports the
