3-D Mapping Uncovers Extra Layer of Tectonic Plates Hidden in Earth's Mantle

from Wired

The series of small and large tectonic plates that lie beneath the Earth's surface have been responsible for shaping the world's landmass into how it appears today. Each of the plates only shifts a few centimeters per year but can have a huge impact when they do. Using a 3-D mapping technique to visualize these known plates, a team of researchers believes it has found a further, hidden layer of tectonic plates sunk into the mantle. more
