    Goals To classify the deformations on the surface of the Earth, which consists of interlocking plates like a giant puzzle. To learn about dynamic events such as earthquakes, volcanism, tsunami. To examine the fault zones and the settlements in the basins.
    Content The dynamic movements of the Earth crusts related to plate movements and events (earthquakes, volcanism, tsunami) and their importance in terms of community settlements.
