Tectonic Plate Motions, Eurasia/Africa

This map shows current movements of the Eurasian, African, Indian and Arabian lithospheric plates relative to the Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite network. The differences among individual stations are due to deformation of the plates at their edges and distortion produced by the Mercator projection of the map. The information on this map was last updated in August 2002.

See the North American, Pacific, Nazca, Australian, Philippine and Antarctic plate motions here.

A full-world version of this map and detailed data for each station can be found at the GPS Time Series site.
