ยท         Discuss the evidence Wegener used to support his idea of continental drift.


May 4th, 2015

he states in his theory that the earth was once one big mass called Gondwanaland which later drifted to form pangea and Eurasia then later the continents

evidence he gave to support his theory was the Jig saw fitness of continents like the complimentary arrangements of facing sides of Africa and South africa

similarly the issue of plate tectonic where continents movements on tectonic plates is evidence in fossils and plants which are similar but found in different continents suggesting they were once together

the continuity of glaciers infered from glacial striations. all these suggest evidence of a supercontinent once called Godwanaland
