Plate tectonics and earthquakes: what are the two historical figures and the process of mantle convection and plate movement.I understand that the whole continent moves but what is plate tectonics and the historical figures that contributed to the plate technonic theory and how would the plates move by boiling a pot of water and relating it to mantle convention and plate movement. I just don't understand how this process can happen.
