I found this video on the Expansion Theory of the Earth and I'm very impressed at how it is explained!
For so long science has searched in the hope of finding how earthquakes occur and still they don't have the answers but perhaps if we consider what
is explained in this excellent video we will finally find the answers to the many anomalies we're confronted with.
They say that the best discoveries are often the most simplest and this video makes me remember the times when man believed the earth was flat.
Will this theory be the one that helps us understand the planet we live on and more importantly what does it hold for the future?
"The Earth has 657 more barrier islands than previously thought, according to a new global survey by researchers from Duke University and Meredith
College in Raleigh, N.C.
The researchers identified a total of 2,149 barrier islands worldwide using satellite images, topographical maps and navigational charts. The new
total is significantly higher than the 1,492 islands identified in a 2001 survey conducted without the aid of publicly available satellite imagery.
Not only that, but the moving plates we hear about so much may not be 'subduction zones', but separation zones.
Separating seafloor guides magma up to mid-ocean ridges such as the East Pacific Rise, where the molten rock erupts, fans out along the ocean floor
and cools to form new crust. Cooling allows sound waves and electrical currents to travel faster. But scientists thought this cooling – and the
resulting changes in the rock – would be gradual.
"About two-thirds of the Earth's surface is oceanic crust – and it is all formed at ridges," Forsyth said. "So this work helps us better
understand the basic processes of how this crust is formed."
