You’ll be shocked to know the reason behind the movement of Earth

Have you ever thought, what are the forces that move the tectonic plates of Earth? Or is it something else? The geologists have spent their whole life, thinking about the odd. 

The scientists have taken into consideration a solid sphere with a single unified system and carried out the practice of fictional evolution on a planet model, very similar to Earth. 

After evaluating the appropriate parameters, the scientists took the help of a supercomputer to solve a set of equations, for some nine months. 

After reconstructing the process of evolution, the scientists concluded that compared to the underlying mantle of the Earth, two-thirds of its surface move faster. While for the remaining one-third, the roles get reversed. 

Through the research, the reason behind the formation and disappearance of the mid-ocean ridges, and massive volcanic eruptions can be brought to the surface.

Many other sources have confirmed the data brought to focus by the Geology Laboratory of the École Normale Supérieure (CNRS/ENS—PSL), the Institute of Earth Sciences (CNRS/Université Grenoble Alpes and Savoie Mont Blanc/IRD/Ifsttar) and the University of Rome 3, and have cited it as a rich source which will promote further research.
