Diastrophism involves the movements of the earth's tectonic plates. Many theories about what causes these movements include pressure via the heat of convection currents and magma flow, while real, measurable causes involve things like meteor impacts or erosion from landslides.

What is a diastrophic plateau?

The large-scale deformation of the earth's crust which produces continents, ocean basins and mountains ranges, etc., is known as diastrophism. All the highest plateaus of the earth are the direct products of diastrophism. Since their uplifts they have been modified by various agents of erosion and in many cases by volcanism and minor earth movements.
