Scientists of Tectonic Plate Theory
Famous scientist's theorys about plate tectonics
James Hutton bieleved that the earth was perpetually biang formed, one of his examples that support his theory is "magma is forced into mountains, eroded, and then the sediments are washed away." He is the founder of modern geology because of all of the theories that made way for modern geology is also why he is important.
His knowledge of math, physics, thermodynamics, his analysis of the mantle, and his paper, "the viscosity of the lower mantle," which supports his theory there are two layers layers in the mantle, each of them in motion. His discovery is important because he gave Wegener the mechinism he needed to support his continental drift theory.
