• Plate tectonics theory: composition of the lithosphere, lithospheric plates, geological evidence for plate motion, plate kinematic on spherical Earth, absolute and relative plate motions, plate boundaries, triple junctions, mechanisms of plate motion.
  • Principal tectonic environments on Earth: oceanic ridges and transform faults, continental extensional provinces (rifts), continental transform and strike-slip faults, subduction zones, collisional zones and orogens.
  • Lithosphere mechanics: crustal and mantle rheology, deformational mechanisms in rocks, brittle and ductile deformation, forces and stress strates in the lithosphere, heat flow, transfer of heat in the lithosphere, geotherms, P-T conditions in the lithosphere, metamorphism.
  • Dynamical processes in the lithosphere: fault mechanics, lithospheric extension, lithospheric flexure, formation of sedimentary basins, continental collision, orogenic collapse.
