Caption

Animation of a flight over Africa to the Mediterranean Sea, highlighting the active plate boundaries that cause mountain-building, earthquakes and volcanoes in the region. The Alps, Pyrenees and other mountains in the region have been lifted due to the collision of the African Plate with the Eurasian Plate. The block raised out of the map towards the end of the clip corresponds to the Adriatic Plate (or Apulian Plate), a minor plate that broke away from the African Plate during the Cretaceous Period. Its subduction under the Eurasian Plate has formed the Appenine Mountains that run down through Italy. Movements at the boundary cause earthquakes in the region, such as the Central Italian earthquake of 24th August 2016.
