Exhibit: The Inside Story
- Scientific American. The earth's dynamic surface is divided into a dozen main crustal plates whose slipping and sliding unleash volcanoes, build mountain ranges and trigger earthquakes. Now researchers have created computer simulations of the earth's interior that show in vivid detail the churning, convective processes that--literally--rock our world.
- Information from the British Geological Survey.
Patrice's Tectonics Pages
- 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. Monash University, Australia.
Peter Bird's programs for tectonic modeling
- Tectonic modeling with finite elements: programs, publications, figures, and abstracts by Peter Bird of UCLA
Plate Motion Calculator
- Calculates the current heading and speed of any given spot on any given plate, using one of three different plate reconstructions. From Tokyo University.
Plate Tectonic Reconstructions and Paleomagnetism
- Web server for making on-line plate tectonic reconstructions. Includes access to paleomagnetic data and analyses.
- Archive of articles and graphical data related to plate tectonics.
Puzzles Of The Earth
- Dedicated to teaching the theory of plate tectonics.
- Geological results on the northern Tyrrhenian Basin, especially on the Tuscan and Corsican metamorphic core complexes, in structural geology, metamorphic petrology and Ar/Ar radiochronology.
This Dynamic Earth
- Online version of a U.S. Geological Survey brochure on the topic of plate tectonics. The site seems appropriate for high-schoolers and above (and advanced middle schoolers). Covers the historical development of plate tectonics as a theory, how we see it in action today, and how tectonics affects people.
WebDoGS Plate Tectonics Reconstruction
- A collection of web goodies on plate tectonics reconstructions; links, research, animations, movies, and software.
When the Earth Moves: Seafloor Spreading and Plate Tectonics
- Describes how investigators pursuing basic questions in ocean and terrestrial science gradually arrived at an understanding of how the planet's crust works.
natureandco.com - Tectonics and Earthquakes in New Zealand
- New Zealand ranks among the most active seismic places on earth: earthquakes occur there frequently and continuously. Detailed information with images, references, links, and books to buy.
