|The plates are still moving today making the Atlantic
Ocean larger and the Pacific Ocean smaller. The yellow arrows on the
world map indicate the direction of plates movements today.
Notice the position of the Indian Subcontinent today. It moved
hundreds of miles in 135 million years at a great speed (4 inches per
year!!!) The Indian plate crashed into the Eurasian plate with such
speed and force that it created the tallest mountain range on Earth, the
Himalayas! What do you predict the world will look like in 100 million
or 200 million years? What new mountain ranges will form? Where will
new volcanoes erupt?
