This course is taught by Professor Vince Cronin

This is simply a list of resources for the 2019 edition of my plate kinematics course. The list is in stratigraphic order, with most recently posted items on top and oldest items drifting ever lower in the pile.

The homepage for earlier editions of this course is available via http://croninprojects.org/Vince/PlateKinematics/KinematicsCourse/
