Continental Shift


Continental Drift has embellished the world in so many diverse ways. Continental Drift has affected the development of wildlife, the Earth’s environmental situations and the world's weather. There are also numerous terrible properties of continental drifts, like Earthquakes and Tsunamis.

Theory of Continental Drift

The world was made up of a single continent through most of geologic time. That continent eventually separated and drifted apart, forming into the seven continents we have today. The hypothesis asserts that the continents consist of lighter rocks that rest on heavier crustal material—similar to the manner in which icebergs float on water. It is said that the relative positions of the continents are not rigidly fixed but are slowly moving—at a rate of about one yard per century.
