Plate tectonics

  • Plate tectonics explains the features and movement of Earth's surface in the present and the past.

  • It is a scientific theory.

  • Describing the large-scale motion of 7 large plates.

  • Movements of a larger number of smaller plates of the Earth's lithosphere over the last hundreds of millions of years.

Tuzo Wilson

  • In 1965, Tuzo Wilson who had been a promoter of the sea floor spreading hypothesis and continental drift from the very beginning.

  • Added the concept of transform faults to the model.

  • Completing the classes of fault types

  • To make the mobility of the plates on the globe work out.

History of Plate Tectonics

  • The theory of plate tectonics largely developed since 1967.

  • But, the history of ideas extend back considerably longer.
