What is the difference between plate tectonics and tectonic plate?
Plate tectonics is the process whereby tectonic plates move.
Plate tectonics on earth are vigorous and ongoing. Plate tectonics on Mars are a matter of debate. Long thought to be only in Mars distant past, there is a shift in opinion on the question of plate tectonics on Mars, and some (not all) scientists now believe that there is mild and sporadic plate tectonics happening on Mars to this day. But all agree that if that is the case, it is a fraction of…
What mountain range is being created by the collision between the Indians tectonic plate and the Asian tectonic plate?
Every place on earth is on a tectonic plate as the earth crust consists of tectonic plates. And every tectonic plate is constantly in motion (as they float on magma, beneath the crust). Places which suffer most of earthquakes are in between two tectonic plates. an example of such a place is the City of Los Angeles in California. Mid Oceanic ridges and rifts and mountains are also results of plate tectonics.
