The theory of plate tectonics states that the Earth's surface, the upper mantle and crust, was once made up of enormous rock plates that broke into smaller pieces approximately 300...
The theory of plate tectonics holds that the Earth's crust is composed of mobile plates, which have moved throughout Earth's history. This movement is caused by thermal convection currents produced by the Earth's mantle.
After all these considerations, Plate Tectonics (or, as it was initially called "New
Global Tectonics") became ...

I. Definition and relevance. Plate tectonics - the theory that the earth's lithosphere
is composed of a mosaic of rigid plates that are in relative motion.
a theory of global tectonics in which the lithosphere is divided into a number of
crustal plates, each of which moves on the plastic asthenosphere more or less ...
