The Eurasian Plate is a continental tectonic plate covering Eurasia except the Indian subcontinent, the Arabian subcontinent, and the area east of the Cherskiy Range in East Siberia. It extends westward to the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.
The easterly side is a boundary with the North American Plate to the north and a boundary with the Philippine Plate to the south, and possibly with the Okhotsk Plate and the Amurian Plate. The southerly side is a boundary with the African Plate to the west, the Arabian Plate in the middle and the Indo-Australian Plate to the east. The westerly side is a divergent boundary with the North American Plate forming the northernmost part of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.
