    According to the National Geographic website:


    The divergent Mid-Atlantic Ridge rises above sea level at Thingvellir, with the North American plate to the west and the Eurasian plate to the east:

      satellite-based methods. The late 1970s witnessed the rapid
      growth of space geodesy, a term applied to space-based
      techniques for taking precise, repeated measurements of
      carefully chosen points on the Earth’s surface separated
      by hundreds to thousands of kilometers. The Global
      Positioning System (GPS) has been the most useful for
      studying the Earth’s crustal movements.
      By repeatedly measuring distances between specific
      points, geologists can determine the movement along
      faults or between plates. The separations between GPS
      sites are already being measured regularly around the
      Pacific basin. By monitoring the interaction between the
      Pacific Plate and the surrounding mostly continental plates,
      scientists are learning more about events that build up
      to earthquakes and volcanic eruptions in the circum-
      Pacific “Ring of Fire”. Space-geodetic data have
      already confirmed that the rates and directions of plate
      movements, averaged over several years, compare well
      with rates and directions of plate movements averaged
      over millions of years.

      And yet if you were to string a wire tight between rocks on either side of a plate boundary, the link would not be stretched and break over time.

      The space-based recordings measure movement due to seismicity and average them out.

      During the Tohuku quake in Japan, the seafloor moved a couple of meters.

        Interesting. How do you know this? Has this experiment been performed?

          "Iceland was created from volcanic lava bubbling up at the junction between the North American and Eurasian Plates. It's one of the few places on earth that one can actually see continents being pushed apart" (source).

            Call it a prediction.

            I think your video makes the mistake of taking relative measurements and calling them absolute. GPS stations that record westward movement in Japan are being read against other stations in the area, not against the global situation.

            As you said before, satellite readings show an average movement eastward in Japan.



            However, this movement is all attributable to seismic events; averaging out the movement over time to present a slow, gradual scenario is to misrepresent the data.

              "This animation shows that GPS can record the movement of the leading edge of the overlying continental plate in a subduction zone. The plates are locked and the overlying plate is forced back. When friction is overcome and strain is released, the GPS receiver will snap back toward its original position. This animation is exaggerated to depict the relative motion of plates and GPS as seen in the 2010 Magnitude 8.8 earthquake in Chile where the land in places rebounded 10 meters":

                This means that there is a crossover depth above which melted rock will rise and below which melted rock will only ever sink. Thus convection of the mantle cannot happen.

                  Yes.

                  Can you tell how they might distinguish between the relative movement on either side of a convergent plate boundary?

                    If you put a laser measuring instrument across that divide, the only time you'll register any change is when there is an earthquake.
                    Ongoing precision measurements along the Icelandic plate boundless started in 1994 show that the Eurasia and North America Plates, are separating at a constant rate of 18.2mm/year.

                      Your data proves too much, or rather something entirely different.

                      The direction for instance of the two Atlantic plates are not at all moving
                      in the same DIRECTION as they did to form the Ocean floor and the
                      Atlantic Ridge.

                      Not only speed of crustal movement, but direction has drastically changed.

                      Current processes do not in any way account for the major
                      current geophysical features of the Earth, such as:

                      (1) Canadian Shield

                      (2) Tibetian Plateau

                      (3) Atlantic Ridge

                      (4) Motion of volcanic sources, i.e., Hawai and Iceland

                      (5) Nevada desert, Appalachians, Britain

                      (6) Mediterranean Sea and Baltic Sea

                      (7) Gulf of Hormuz

                      Behold, the whirlwind of the Lord
                      Goes forth with fury, A continuing whirlwind;
                      It will fall violently on the head of the wicked.
                      The fierce anger of the Lord will not return
                      until He has done it, And until He has performed

                        Meaningless drivel, since current processes don't account for
                        the geophysical features of the whole area.

                          So when is the community of geologists supposed to notice that an anonymous poster at a Christian message board has overturned plate tectonics?

                            Are "current processes" meant to explain geophysical features that were obviously produced by past processes?

                              Apparently yes, according to subduction theorists.
