Plate Tectonics Explorer

Plate Tectonics Explorer will make it simple to access Earth Data that you can use to support the theory of plate tectonics. Rather than simply tell you about plate tectonics, this provides you an opportunity to gather evidence and write a scientific argument in support of the theory. The ability to argue from evidence is a critical skill, not only for Earth scientists, but for all.

Suggestions for getting started:
  1. First you should get some familiarity with the theory of plate tectonics.
  2. Watch the tutorial movies. These are very short and will save you time figuring out the app.
  3. Click the "Go To Map' button and start exploring.
