Title: Tectonic Plates, Earthquakes, and Volcanoes
Url: http://www.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/ess05.sci.ess.earthsys.tecto...
Publisher: WGBH Educational Foundation
Description: According to theory of plate tectonics, Earth is an active planet -- its surface is composed of many individual plates that move and interact, constantly changing and reshaping Earth's outer layer. Volcanoes and earthquakes both result from the movement of tectonic plates. This interactive feature shows the relationship between earthquakes and volcanoes and the boundaries of tectonic plates. By clicking on a map, viewers can superimpose the locations of plate boundaries, volcanoes and earthquakes.
