Dec 20th, 2020 by Earth News Interviews
Compared to other foundational scientific breakthroughs like Mendeleev's periodic table, Einstein's relativity, and Watson Crick and Franklin's double helix DNA model, the discovery of plate tectonics is the youngest and one of the most influential in the Earth Sciences. Since the 1960's geoscientists have been building upon John Tuzo Wilson's groundbreaking plate tectonic theory including Dr. Oguz Gogus who is a professor of geophysics from Istanbul's Technical University. We discuss the continental drip theory, which explains why the geologically active region of Central Anatolia has been uplifted over a very short period of geologic time.
