Dectonic Activity Map

All my thoughts are with the people in Japan. A dramatic day, where several earthquakes (8.9 Richter scale) and up to ten meter tsunamis caused death and heavy destruction.

Concerning this happening, it might be interesting to take a look at the Digital Tectonic Activity Map (DTAM). It gives you a better understanding of dectonic activity of our planet. Four plates collide near Japan. More about the “Evolving Earth: Plate Tectonics“.
