Land masses adrift

The world as it appears, and many natural processes that have a direct impact on our daily lives, are the ultimate result of plate tectonics. The tectonic plates are jigsaw pieces of the rigid outer layer shell of the Earth that shuffle against each other. At the plate edges, nature is at its wildest, it is where we find volcanoes, dangerous fault lines, mountain ranges and deep-sea gorges.
