Plate tectonics are a somewhat new method of analysis that has radically changed the way geologists think about the Earth. According to the new theory, Plate tectonics, the surface of the Earth is broken into several differently, and large, sized plates. The size and position of these plates change over time due to earthquakes, the plates colliding, etc, but we will explain this later. The hypothesis of continental drift was majorly developed by Alfred Wegener, a German man, the edges of these plates, and where they move against each other, are sites of intense geologic activity, such as earthquakes, volcanoes, and mountains being formed.
Plate tectonics is a combination of two earlier ideas, continental drift and sea-floor spreading. Continental drift is the movement of continents over the Earth's surface and in their change in position relative to each other. …
