THE UNIVERSE CHANGES, THE EARTH SURFACE CHANGES...........
THE TIME CHANGES EVERYTHING
THAT IS THE MAIN RULE OF THE NATURE
THE THING DOESN'T CHANGE IS THE CHANGE OF NATURE

MOVING TURKEY
One type of earthquake associated with plate tectonics is the shallow-focus event unaccompanied by volcanic activity. Anatolian fault in Northern Turkey is a good example of this, in these faults, two mature plates are scraping by one another. The friction between the plates can be so great that very large strains can build up before they are periodically relieved by large earthquakes. Nevertheless, activity does not always occur along the entire length of the fault during any one earthquake.


ASIA AND INDIA COLLISION
The edges of the plates are marked by concentrations of earthquakes and volcanoes. Collisions of plates can produce mountains like the Himalayas, the tallest range in the world. The plates include the crust and part of the upper mantle, and they move over a hot, yielding upper mantle zone at very slow rates of a few centimeters per year, slower than the rate at which fingernails grow. The crust is much thinner under the oceans than under continents.
