More Info about Wegener's Theory
He found that the Appalachian Mountains as well as the eastern South American Mountains line up with Africa's west coast. Alfred also discovered that there is glacial evidence on the continents that were Pangaea. When the continents split apart the continents took the glaciers with them. The last 2 reasons are that Pangaea was surrounded by an ocean and that the continents split, there was ocean in between them. Finally, there are geological hazards that happen around plate boundaries, proving that the continents split apart millions of years ago.
