Other Info
In geology, the single most unifying concept is plate tectonics. Doug Cunningham will lead us through the development of the theory, from Alfred Wegener in 1912 to Canadian physicist Tuzo Wilson in the 1960's. Plate tectonics causes earthquakes and volcanoes. Doug will take us to Turkey, New Zealand, the Hawaiian Islands and Chile - all places where plate tectonics can be observed.
