The Antarctic Plate is a tectonic plate containing the continent of Antarctica and extending outward under the surrounding oceans. The Antarctic Plate has a boundary with the Nazca Plate, the South American Plate, the African Plate, the Indo-Australian Plate, the Scotia Plate and a divergent boundary with the Pacific Plate forming the Pacific-Antarctic Ridge.
The Antarctic plate is roughly 60,900,000 square kilometers. It is the fifth biggest plate in the world.
