The Geological Society has prepared an interactive website that pays a small tribute to the pioneers of plate tectonics:
- Alfred Lothar Wegener
- Harry Hammond Hess
- Frederick Vine and Drummond Matthews
- John Tuzo-Wilson
- Dan McKenzie
The website also features a Teacher Zone with good teaching material, a Glossary for nicely explained geological terms, and a Test Your Knowledge section with multiple choice quizzes, drag and drop exercises, anagrams and also a plate tectonics crossword.
Well done to The Geological Society for the initiative to promote these scientist. The website can also prove to be a good tool for educators.
