This book offers a historical perspective on Plate Tectonics and discusses the foundations of rigid Plate Tectonics and the limitations of this approach as a complete theory of the earth. 112 illustrations.In fact, a migration of the subduction zone will produce displacement of large volumes of the asthenosphere; the dynamic ... Geodetic methods showed that the Pacific Plate decelerates and accelerates as we move from the ridge to the subduction ... we are led to conclude that, either, in the Pacific, the subduction rate must supersede the spreading rate, or the Pacific is ... because there is no wide band of intraplate extension in the spreading direction, as we mentioned in Section 2.5.
