These boundaries define numerous small 'plates' whose displacement history is constrained only by the nature of their boundaries. Whilst this approach incorporates a formidable quantity of evidence it presents methods. diagnosis an difficulties not encountered in other It is critically dependent on correct of plate boundary nature and position, exercise which we have shown to be difficult. The positions of the minor plates are simply 'educated guesses' [Dewey et al. 3138]. The emphasis on plate boundaries rather than on continental margins leaves the continents as illdefined shapes on which it is difficult to locate new data.
