If you mean 'plate tectonics', that is the geology of the earth's covering plates and how they move.
The dictionary definition of geologist is a specialist in geology
They are the means by which plates of the lithoshpere move.
In theory, tectonic plates. http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/geology/tectonics.html
it means "Has lots of earth in it"
The geological definition of pinch out is thinning or shortening out. This can be used in reference to structural geology.
A rift forms between two tectonic plates that are pulling apart.
The three tectonic plates that affect California's geology are the North American plate, the Pacific plate and the Gorda plate (which is sometimes referred to as the souther portion of the Juan de Fuca plate).
to move away
Containing chalk, - or in geology, the last period of the Mesozoic Era.
when plates collide. They push each other up and create mountains.
Tectonic plates (or continental plates) are pieces of Earth's crust and uppermost mantle, together referred to as the lithosphere.
The three plates that can affect California's geology is the Pacific Plate, the North American Plate, and the Juan de Fuca Plate.
There are seven to eight different major tectonic plates, depending on definition and many minor plates.
The definition is the belief of the large continents with their plates moving slowly
George Plafker has written: 'The Geology of Alaska/Book and Plates (Geology of North America)' 'Surface faults on Montague Island associated with the 1964 Alaska earthquake'
Plates in science means the earth plates.The plates that are called Tectonic Plates. These plates are under the crust and keep moving. These are actually layers of rocks or same kind of material.
it unified many of the previously isolated concepts of geology into a single theory
We have a) GPS measurements at different plates. b) evidence from earthquakes: They are caused by movement at plate boundaries / Fault zones. c) Evidence from geology (fault offsets)
When tectonic plates push together, they converge, forming a convergent boundary.
Geology is a branch of science dealing with the study of the Earth , the materials of which it is made, the structure of those materials, and the processes acting upon them. A very important part of geology is the study of how Earth's materials, structures, processes and organisms have changed over time.
The definition of Lithospheric Plate is:) Lithospheric plates are regions of Earth's crust and upper mantle that are fractured into plates that move across a deeper plasticine mantle. Also Qwertyuiopasdfghjklzxcvbnm has nothing to do with it.
A type of fault caused by two plates slidding along each other, like the San Andreas fault.
about earth ^thats true, but ive done Geology as an A Level and the modules i did involved tectonic plates, earthquakes and volcanoes, folding and faulting of rock, what the earth is made of, igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks, the rock cycle and palaentology
Subduction occurs when two continental plates collide and one plate is forced below the other. In geology, subduction is a process that takes place at convergent plates.
