Plate tectonics is a scientific theory describing the large-scale motion of seven large plates and the movements of a larger number of smaller plates of the Earth's lithosphere, since tectonic processes began on Earth between . and . billion. billion years ago. The model builds on the concept of continental drift, an idea developed during the first decades of the 20th century. The geoscientific community accepted plate-tectonic theory after seafloor spreading was validated in the late 1950s and early 1960s.
All About Plate Tectonics: Earth's Plates and Continental Drift. The Earth's rocky outer crust solidified billions of years ago, soon after the Earth formed. This crust is not a solid shell; it is broken up into huge, thick plates that drift atop the soft, underlying mantle. The plates are made of rock and drift all over the globe; they move both horizontally (sideways) and vertically (up and down). Also, the sea level changes over time (as the temperature on Earth varies and the poles melt or freeze to varied extents), covering or exposing different amounts of crust.

Plate tectonics is a unifying model that attempts to explain the origin of patterns of deformation in the crust, earthquake distribution, supercontinents, and midocean ridges and that provides a mechanism for the Earth to cool.

The major plate tectonics are the African, Antarctic, Eurasian, North American, South American, India-Australian, and the Pacific plate
The major plate tectonics are the African, Antarctic, Eurasian, North American, South American, India-Australian, and the Pacific plate. The theory of plate tectonics has been around for about 50+ years. It can explain phenomena such as mid oceanic trenches, large-scale volcanic mountain ranges, and earthquakes. A tectonic plate is the crust of the planet that is divided by fault lines, all oceanic and continental rock is part of of a tectonic plate down to and including the upper mantle, this is what is known as the lithosphere. Tectonic plates are like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, the jigsaw puzzle being the lithosphere.
Plate tectonics is the theory that Earth's outer shell is divided into several plates .
Plate tectonics is the theory that Earth's outer shell is divided into several plates that glide over the mantle. Before plate tectonics, people had to come up with explanations of the geologic features in their region that were unique to that particular region," Van der Elst said. Plate tectonics unified all these descriptions and said that you should be able to describe all geologic features as though driven by the relative motion of these tectonic plates. How many plates are there? There are nine major plates, according to World Atlas The nine major plates are North American, Pacific, Eurasian, African, Indo-Australian, Australian, Indian, South American and Antarctic.
