Plates movements. The theories that scientists have used to explain these movements.
Offering Paleomagnetic core orientation and paleomagnetic services including paleomagnetic fracture orientation, fracture studies in fractured reservoirs, and paleomagnetic orientation of in-situ stress.
Real time seismic data for view or download from the Anza network in Southern California.
Set up to measure crustal deformation in a tectonically active area, improve estimates of the earthquake hazard in southern California, and serve as a testing ground for new geophysical instrumentation.
Diagrams of tectonics of the North Pacific and the west coast of North America.
Full and clear information about Plate Tectonics: Convergent Boundaries, Divergent Boundaries, Transform Boundaries.
Information from the British Geological Survey.
Measurements made with the Global Positioning System are sensitive enough to detect motion of the Earth's tectonic plates.
NSF funded program which tries to understand the complex interplay of processes that govern the evolution of continental margins by a multidisciplinary approach, including seismicity and subduction processes.
Resources for students in geology and geophysics, including lectures notes, slide show and virtual field trips. Topics include structural geology, tectonics, and geology of granite.
Tectonic modeling with finite elements: programs, publications, figures, and abstracts by Peter Bird of UCLA.
This article is about Plate Tectonic Evolution written by Martin Meschede and Udo Barckhausen.
This site provides useful information about tectonics: the origin of plate tectonics, indications of tectonic activity, age of the sea floor.
Dorian J. Burnette writes about how continental movement plate tectonics have a profound impact on the climate of the Earth.
Interesting animations of plate tectonics movement. Including gif, avi and mov formats.
PhD thesis on the active tectonics of Northeast Altai in central Asia focusing on structural geology, paleostress analysis, seismics and radon gas geochemistry.
Tectonics contains original scientific contributions in analytical, synthetic, and integrative tectonics. Papers are restricted to the structure and evolution of the terrestrial lithosphere with dominant emphasis on the continents.
Dr. Peter Langdon Ward has made a detailed analysis of the geology of western North America in relation to the motion of plates in the eastern Pacific Ocean. He also discusses earthquakes and global climate change.
