    Plate Tectonics
    What is the general spatial relationship between earthquake epicenters and volcano positions along the Pacific margin of Mexico and Central America? What sort of plate boundary does this relationship indicate?

    Hello g:

    Tickle knows what she's talking about...

    But, what I find fascinating about plate tectonics, is that when I was a kid, they had NO idea that the continents moved.. It's been discovered during my lifetime...

    Ain't science wonderful??
