Clocking Tectonic Plates

posted by .

As I was reading through one of the websites, I happened to come across this sentence.

Wegener's explanation was that as the continents moved, the leading edge of the continent would encounter resistance and thus compress and fold upwards forming mountains near the leading edges of the drifting continents.

Could u please simplify this for me?
