EURASIA PLATE Type: Major Approximate Area: 67,800,000 km 2 (26,200,000 sq mi) The Eurasian Plate is a tectonic plate that is located in most of the continent of Eurasia. Eurasia is a land mass consisting of the traditional continents Europe and Asia. The Eurasian Plate also includes all the islands in Europe and Asia. It also includes oceanic crust extending westward to the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and northward to the Gakkel Ridge. Some islands include the United Kingdom, Japan, Philippines, and Sri Lanka. Surrounding Plates The eastern side is a boundary with the North American Plate to the north and a boundary with the Philippine Sea Plate to the south and possibly with the Okhotsk Plate and the Amurian Plate . The southerly side is a boundary with the African Plate to the west, the Arabian Plate in the middle and the Indo-Australian Plate to the east. The westerly side is a divergent boundary with the North American Plate forming the northernmost part of the Mid- Atlantic Ridge, which is straddled by Iceland.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
