Need an additional view of the current plate boundaries.[edit]

It would be very useful if there was a second map of the current plate boundaries, 180° opposite to the existing one; it is very hard to visualize the geometry of the boundaries around the western Pacific ocean. Zvmphile (talk) 07:53, 9 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The current map was hand-drawn by a user many years ago. I am preparing a series of images with different views. But it will take some time to finish them during the next months. Jpvandijk (talk) 08:07, 23 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Reconstruction of former geography/continents[edit]

I did search information about the continents and position of plates in former times. Where could I find that? --Universal-Interessierterde (talk (de)) 21:33, 4 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Semi-protected edit request on 5 February 2023[edit]

Under subheading “Mars” The word “fail” in this sentence needs to be changed to “failed” to match the past tense of the verbs used in the paragraph:

However, their data fail a "magnetic reversal test", which is used to see if they were formed by flipping polarities of a global magnetic field.[96] Philinsydney (talk) 16:48, 5 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The first sentence of the "history of the theory" section is a garbled mess of words. It needs to be changed. I'm not sure what the original writer of that phrase was trying to say, bit of you can interpret it then you'll have a good idea of what to change it to.

Thanks you are absolutely right this happened when someone all of a sudden introduced that concept just to insert a reference and it was adjusted only partly. I hope it is better now. Jpvandijk (talk) 08:05, 23 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
