According to plate tectonics geological concept, Earth's lithosphere consists of plates that are in motion with respect to one another. The motion of continents, called continental drift, occurs with the movement of the lithospheric plates. Conceptual development of contemporary plate tectonics theory came as a result of scientific debate between advocates of stationary continents theory and theory of continental drift.…
