Description:

This site from the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) offers an interactive simulation that shows how magnetic stripes on the ocean bottom can reveal the age of the material and reveal plate motion. An applet shows the magnetic polarities change as the user moves a compass across the ocean bottom on the screen.
