-Pictures from Google Image Plate Tectonic Movement -The Earth's surface is made up of a series of large plates
-The heat of hot interior leads to convection, which causes the movement of plate Types of plate boundaries:
-Divergent Boundaries
-Convergent Boundaries
-Transform Boundaries
-Plate Boundary Zones Link to 'The Great Kanto Earthquake' -Interplate earthquake Seismometers Tiltmeters Tools Opinion AGREE! -could give others awareness of earthquakes or volcanic eruptions occuring soon DISAGREE! -the prediction might not be correct -Aftershock THANK YOU!
