Galapagos: sea floor spreading

Clip from David Attenborough's Galapagos  |  Season 1  |  Episode 3  |  ABC  |  March 24, 2013

The movement of oceanic plates created the volcanic islands of the Galapagos as the plate moved over a volcanic hot spot. As the plate moved, it carried older islands away from the hot spot, gradually forming new environments for evolution.
