Scientists have long known about the push and pull effects that drive the tectonic plates across the surface of our planet, but new research shows that there might be a third force inflicting its presence on the movement of the continental plates.
The intensification of Indian monsoons has, according to new research, the ability to spin the Earth’s tectonic plates.
New research out of The Australian National University has recorded for the first time what was once thought to be only theoretical; yo-yo subduction in the Earth’s crust.
astrologer has also predicted that such a close perigee would/must somehow perturb the earth’s (tectonic) integrity so much that it will trigger major earthquakes and even volcanoes (not simply severe storms). Although he is not clear on the exact lunar-geo-mechanisms that would produce these quakes, never-the-less this lunar-induced disaster scenario quickly set the Web abuzz with yet another wave of doom-and-gloom “apocalypticism.”
Timing is everything.
Scientific debate often rings immediately boring in many minds, with assumptions suggesting that the topic at hand is simply an academic one, and nothing important or impacting. Such is not the case for the debate over whether plate tectonics apply on the continental scale as well as on the fault scale, as more knowledge in
