GEO 444 Plate Tectonics 3.0 Credits

Plate tectonics is one of the Earth Sciences' foundational theories, underlying much of our understanding on the origin and distribution of volcanoes, earthquakes, ocean basins, and mountain chains. This course discusses vector analysis approaches as they apply to plate tectonics theory, plate rotation poles, analysis of triple-junction stability, mantle flow, plate motion reconstructions, and the driving forces of plate tectonics.
