The Plate Tectonics History of the World, as Seen in Northern Scotland

June 21, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Linda Hall Library, 5109 Cherry
Kansas City, 64110 United States
+ Google Map

Throughout earth’s history, tectonic plates have been driven into massive collisions with one another by the earth’s internal heat in convection currents over a thousand miles deep. In those collisions, the rocks of the plates have been deformed, compressed, metamorphosed, eroded, and deformed again and again. The rocks of northern Scotland preserve vivid, visible evidence of more collisions than almost anywhere else in the world, making it one of the best places to follow Sir Charles Lyell’s favorite dictum, "Go and see."
