The Amurian Plate or Amur Plate; also occasionally referred to as the China Plate is a minor tectonic plate in the northern and eastern hemispheres It covers Manchuria, the Korean Peninsula, Western Japan, and Primorsky Krai Once thought to be a part of the Eurasian Plate, the Amur Plate is now generally considered to be a separate plate moving southeast with respect to the Eurasian Plate1 The Amurian Plate is named after the Amur River, that forms the border between the Russian Far East and Northeastern China It is bounded on the north, west, and southwest by the Eurasian Plate, on the east by the Okhotsk Plate, to the southeast by the Philippine Sea Plate along the Suruga Trough and the Nankai Trough, and the Okinawa Plate, and the Yangtze Plate2

The Baikal Rift Zone is considered a boundary between the Amurian Plate and the Eurasian Plate GPS measurements indicate that the plate is slowly rotating counterclockwise

The Amurian Plate may have been involved in the 1976 Tangshan earthquake in China
