11.11.2015 | How Plate Tectonics started on Earth

12.11.2015: How Plate Tectonics started on Earth? Our planet Earth is the only planet in the Solar System that features Plate Tectonics. The Earth’s surface is in a constant state of change; the tectonic plates together with the oceans and continents continuously slide along one another, collide or sink into the Earth’s mantle. However, it still remains unclear how Plate Tectonics started on Earth. An international research team combining modeling experts from the ETH Zürich, the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences, and geologists from the University of Texas and Korea University in Seoul has proposed an answer to this question in a recent publication in the journal Nature.
