“Plate tectonics describes how the Earth’s plates move but not the forces behind this,” says Professor of Geology Trond Helge Torsvik, who heads the Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics (CEED) at the University of Oslo. “We want to link plate tectonics with processes in the deep mantle such as plumes and mantle convection. In this way we could explain how the liquid mass in the Earth’s interior is connected with Earth’s surface plates, and, in turn, with processes in the atmosphere and biosphere.”
