Other hotspots exist around the globe which can give us the speeds of other plates. Don’t miss a thing! PLAY. It is thought to have been herbivorous and grew to approximately one metre in length, with a stocky build like a pig. It is now known that most of the major continental masses can be fit together in a jigsaw process. Sunday: 11 am – 5 pm Likewise, the exception of special volcanoes called hot spots (see below), all of the active volcanoes on Earth are found on some of the boundaries between plates. Developing Effective Teams Let's Ride *No strings attached. Evidence from fossils, glaciers, and complementary coastlines helps reveal how the plates once fit together.
