How fast does the Philippine plate move?
Present-day MORVEL Philippine Sea motions are rapid (~6–11 cm/yr) to the WNW (~300°) relative to eastern Eurasia, similar to the adjacent Pacific and Caroline plate motions (9.5–11 cm/yr) [Argus et al., 2011; DeMets et al., 2010].
Is Philippines part of Pangea?
Archipelago refers to a large collection of islands, and the Philippines islands is an example of an archipelago. The Philippines did not break out from Pangaea. Rather, the Philippine islands were formed by volcanic eruptions that occurred under the Pacific Ocean over millions of years.
