The Shifting of Pangea
Have you ever ever pointed out that a map of the world looks like a problem and the areas look like the pieces that could fit together to complete the puzzle.
In 1912, Alfred Wegener, a German scientist and an adventurer, came up with a theory that the continents experienced once been part of a " supercontinent". Wegener suggested that, more than 200 mil years, what he referred to as Pangea got separated to become individual bits. Pangea means " most lands" in Greek, and that is what Pangea was, an extremely large landmass when all the continents were connected. When Wegener first proposed this kind of idea in 1912, persons did not take up this theory. One of the problems that Wegener confronted was that this individual believed the continents acquired drifted apart, but he couldn't describe how they acquired drifted a part. Another issue was that there was a theory already in place called the " Compression Theory". This kind of theory explained that the Earth was once a molten ball and in the cooling, the area cracked and folded up about itself. Among the problems with this theory is that it suggests that all mountain ranges were the same era, and this wasn't able to be accurate. Wegner's reason was that continents shifted and these moving plates will collide, face resistance from another, compress, then fold upwards to create mountains close to the edges of the plates.
Eons in the past India and an ancient ocean called the Tethys Ocean sat on the tectonic dish. This place was switching northward to Asia at a rate of 15 centimeters each year. The water got progressively smaller product about 55 million years ago when it mixed with Asia. There was no longer ocean remaining of lubricate the subduction and so the dishes formed the High Plateau of Tibet and the Himalayan Mountains.
Evidence that Pangea might have existed can be found in terrain animals, vegetation, mountains, as well as the climate. Fossils and plants that are the same, can be found in different prude, across oceans. Assuming that...
