The Plate Tectonics Revolution
Lecture no. 38 from the course: The Joy of Science
Taught by Professor Robert M. Hazen | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
The plate tectonics theory produced one of the great scientific revolutions of the 20th century. Before the mid-1960s, Earth studies were localized and fragmented into subdisciplines. We examine the separate lines of observational evidence that led to this grand theory, and the wealth of specific and testable predictions that flow from it.
