This Week's Geo-Quiz: Plate Tectonics

By April 20, 2014

Follow me on:

Over 200 years ago, we began to glimpse the outlines of the great engine that sculpts and maintains the Earth as we know and love it. It took a century and a half to come up with a paradigm—a body of theory and worldview—that we could sink our teeth into: plate tectonics. Today the general public is familiar with the basics of plates. But this quiz gets into the deep details that only a Geo-Whiz has mastered. Could you be one? Give the quiz a try.

I got nine, I think that’s the best I’ve gotten on any of the quizzes.
