DMPQ- Explain the concept and significance of plate tectonic theory .

The theory of plate tectonics proposes that the earth’s lithosphere is divided into seven major and several minor plates. The movement of the plates results in the building up of stresses within the plates and the continental rocks above, which leads to folding, faulting and volcanic activity. The major plates are surrounded by fold mountains, … Read more DMPQ- Explain the concept and significance of plate tectonic theory .

DMPQ- . Briefly discuss the direct sources of information about the interior part of earth.

Most of our knowledge about the interior of the earth is largely based on estimates and inferences. Yet, a part of the information is obtained through direct observations and analysis of materials. The most easily available solid earth material is surface rock or the rocks we get from mining areas. Gold mines in South Africa … Read more DMPQ- . Briefly discuss the direct sources of information about the interior part of earth.

DMPQ- What are the factors that control temperature distribution on the surface of the earth?

. The temperature of air at any place is influenced by : The latitude of the place; The altitude of the place; distance from the sea, the airmass circulation; The presence of warm and cold ocean currents; Local aspects.   The latitude The temperature of a place depends on the insolation received.

DMPQ- Briefly explain the process of weathering.

. Weathering processes are responsible for breaking down the rocks into smaller fragments and preparing the way for formation of not only regolith and soils, but also erosion and mass movements. Biomes and biodiversity is basically a result of forests (vegetation) and forests depend upon the depth of weathering mantles. Erosion cannot be significant if … Read more DMPQ- Briefly explain the process of weathering.

DMPQ- . Discuss the evidences in support of Continental drift theory.

The Matching of Continents (Jig-Saw-Fit) The shorelines of Africa and South America facing each other have a remarkable and unmistakable match. It may be noted that a map produced using a computer programme to find the best fit of the Atlantic margin was presented by Bullard in 1964. It proved to be quite perfect. The … Read more DMPQ- .
