Calculating the Movement of Australia

The tectonic plates are in a continuous state of movement, and this movement, resulting from the flow of convention currents, impacts the surface of the Earth. In this activity, students investigate why the position of Australia on maps was recalibrated in 2016. They also calculate how far Australia will move between now and 2085.
