Tectonic plates weaker than previously thought

Oxford, UK (SPX) Sep 15, 2017

The finding explains an ambiguity in lab work that led scientists to believe these rocks were much stronger than they appeared to be in the natural world. This new knowledge will help us understand how tectonic plates can break to form new boundaries.
