Congratulations on this excellent venture… what a great idea!

I use WIKI 2 every day and almost forgot how the original Wikipedia looks like.
What we do. Every page goes through several hundred of perfecting techniques; in live mode. Quite the same Wikipedia. Just better.

Eurasian Plate

The Eurasian Plate
Approximate area67,800,000 km2 (26,200,000 sq mi)[1]
Speed17–14 mm (0.28–0.55 in)/year
FeaturesEurope, Asia, Atlantic Ocean, Arctic Ocean

The Eurasian Plate is a tectonic plate which includes most of the continent of Eurasia (a landmass consisting of the traditional continents of Europe and Asia), with the notable exceptions of the Indian subcontinent, the Arabian subcontinent, and the area east of the Chersky Range in East Siberia. It also includes oceanic crust extending westward to the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and northward to the Gakkel Ridge.

The eastern side is a boundary with the North American Plate to the north and a boundary with the Philippine Sea Plate to the south and possibly with the Okhotsk Plate and the Amurian Plate. The southerly side is a boundary with the African Plate to the west, the Arabian Plate in the middle and the Indo-Australian Plate to the east. The westerly side is a divergent boundary with the North American Plate forming the northernmost part of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, which is straddled by Iceland. All of the volcanic eruptions in Iceland, such as the 1973 eruption of Eldfell, the 1783 eruption of Laki, and the 2010 eruption of Eyjafjallajökull, are caused by the North American and the Eurasian Plates moving apart, which is a result of divergent plate boundary forces.

The geodynamics of central Asia is dominated by the interaction between the Eurasian and Indian Plates. In this area, many subplates or crust blocks have been recognized, which form the Central Asian and the East Asian transit zones.[2]

Himalaya is a mountain range in the Indian subcontinent... & its home to 9 of ten highest peaks on Earth.. which are more higher that 8000 meters. Now let us See How Himalayan Range took Birth Actually the birth of Himalayan range started About 70 million years ago, The Himalayan range is one of the youngest mountain ranges on the earth. The 6,000 kilometers plus journey of the Indian Plate .. before its collision with Eurasian Plate stared about 40 to 50 million years ago. According to the theory of tectonic plate, Indo-Australian plate.. was moving at about 15 cm per year towards North. It is assumed that the Indian Plate and Australian Plate.. have been separate since at 100 million years ago. Continental collision orogeny along the convergent boundary between the Indo-Australian Plate and the Eurasian Plate resulted.. Formation Of Himalayan Range. Due to this collision The Andaman and Nicobar Islands.. in the Bay of Bengal were also formed. Himalayan Ranges consists mostly of uplifted sedimentary and metamorphic rock. The Indian plate is still moving at 67 mm per year horizontally... below the Tibetan Plateau, which forces the plateau to.. continue to move upwards. and it will travel about.. 1,500 km into Asia over the next 10 million years. by thrusting along the Himalaya southern front about 20mm per year of the India-Asia convergence is absorbed.. Resulting in the Himalaya Rising of approximately 5mm per year.. and Rising Mt Everest with average of 4mm per year. The movement of the Indian plate into the Asian plate.. also leads to earthquakes. After Antarctica and the Arctic The Himalayas contain.. the third-largest deposit of ice and snow in the world.
