The ground beneath...
Basically, our project is about Plate Tectonics, the resultant landforms of tectonic processes, as well as the effects on the Physical and Human environment. Therefore the title "The ground beneath...".
The content of the page would cover the brief history of Pangaea, structure of the Earth, how and why plates move and the types of plate movements.
Also included are how folding and faulting can occur when the plates diverge or converge. How fold mountains, block mountains, rift valleys are formed will also be explained.
In the webpage itself, we intend to include a section on earthquakes and volcanoes as they are the most common effects and features that occur during the plate movement.
There would be detailed explanations as well as diagrams to accompany and enhanced the webpage. Besides all these, a message board and a search engine on our site to make searching of information easier and more efficient.
