THE RATES OF PLATE CREATION AND CONSUMPTION

Abstract:

An alternative vector derivation of the expression for the rates of plate creation and consumption is given, from which it can be seen that the rates are proportional to the scalar product of the edges of the geohedron and plate polyhedron corresponding to the same boundary. The plate polyhedron is defined by the set of triple junction vectors. This is used, together with a recent determination of the angular velocity vectors and a number of auxiliary plate boundary vectors, to revise the rat...
