Plate tectonics is a The edges of these plates, where they move against each other, are sites of intense geologic activity, such as earthquakes, volcanoes, and mountain building. The Continental Drift Controversy, Volume 4: Evolution into Plate Tectonics By Henry R. Recent progress on earthquake geology / edited by Pierpaolo Guarnieri New York : Nova Science, c2010. The continental plate forms high mountains, the Andes in South America. Why are there old and young mountains? Earthquakes, volcanic activity, mountain-building, and oceanic trench formation occur along plate boundaries. Why do the shapes of South America and Africa fit so well together?

Plate Tectonics: Continental Drift and Mountain Building Wolfgang Frisch, Martin Meschede, Ronald C. Plate tectonic theory grew from Wegener's continental drift hypothesis and is the unifying theory underlying modern geology and geophysics. Plate Tectonics and Continental Drift. The lateral movement of the Plate tectonic theory arose out of the hypothesis of continental drift proposed by Alfred Wegener in 1912 and expanded in his 1915 book The Origin of Continents and Oceans.
