Description: This Dynamic Earth--This booklet (77 pages) gives a brief introduction to the concept of plate tectonics and complements the visual and written information in This Dynamic Planet, a map published in 1994 by the USGS and Smithsonian Institution. This booklet highlights some of the people and discoveries that advanced the development of the theory and traces its progress since its proposal. Although the general idea of plate tectonics is now widely accepted, many aspects still continue to confound and challenge scientists. The earth-science revolution launched by the theory of plate tectonics is not finished. This Dynamic Earth may be viewed online at: http://pubs.usgs.gov/publications/text/
