Quick Reference

One of the present-day major lithospheric plates, extending from the oceanic ridges in the Atlantic Ocean to a currently poorly-identified margin with the Pacific Plate in the east. The southern boundary is basically the Alpine–Himalayan fold belt, involving a collage of microplates, minor plates, and the African and Indo-Australian Plates.
