plate tectonics is the theory that the earths outer shell is divided into several plates that glide over the mantle the rock inner layer above the core.

seafloor spreading

in a process seafloor spreading magma rises and cools to make the top crust at ocean ridges

earthquake and volcano mapping

when mapping earthquakes and volcano science notice that they consistently land

hot spots

island chains like hawaii may help to prove the existing of plates
