Scientists determine the date of ‘the confluence of continents’


World – Miscellaneous

The earth is witnessing remarkable transformations, as one continent moves away from the other, or one fuses with the other, and they become one continent that is described as a “giant”“.

Earth scientists say that the giant continents arise very slowly, when one continent fuses with another, and this matter only happens once in every 600 million years..

According to the science magazine, Geologists, it is likely that this will happen in the future, but we will not witness it at all because it takes millions of years..

The researchers explain that these giant continents will emerge, because the Earth is affected by the phenomenon of “shedding rocks” in a layer of earth known as the “mantle” or “mantle”.“.

This mantle is an underground layer with a thickness of approximately 2885 km, and this level records a high temperature that interacts in the form of boiling water..

The crust in which we live directly above the planet is between 30 and 60 km thick.

And the temperature in the underground region causes the continents to shift over time, and from here there is a remarkable change in the map.

A scientific model based on the “plate tectonics” movement predicts that within the next two hundred million years, the Eurasia mass (Europe and Asia) will collide with the American continent, and what can be called “Amasia” will emerge.“.

Harvard geologist Paul Hoffman, one of the researchers, says this idea is not surprising.

Scientific data indicate the existence of one giant continent called “Pangea” 200 million years ago, and then it split apart and the continents we know today emerged from it, separated by seas and oceans..

Meanwhile, scientists claim that all the existing continents will reunite with each other within two hundred million years, with the exception of Antarctica..

Likewise, researchers suggest that all continents will be at the Earth’s equator within 250 million years.

And since the world’s continents will budge from their current location, climate matters will witness a remarkable change in the future.
