      Abstract. The Midland Valley is first recognisable as a graben after the closure of Iapetus. NE-SW structural lineaments parallel to the closure then controlled deposition of early Devonian intermontane sequences and the siting of some of the calcalkaline volcanism within the by: side of the North Atlantic Ocean. From that, and displaying little regard for the geological timescale, he deduced that the North Atlantic must have opened since the retreat of the Quaternary ice sheets. Such an unlikely circumstance made it very easy for his opponents to dismiss continental drift in its entirety. We can stay with the themes ofFile Size: 4MB.

      Extensive field studies on the African and North American plates during this past decade have yielded a wealth of new data and ideas about rift basins and the origin of passive margins. New surface and subsurface basins have been identified; fossils abound in strata that only recently were considered barren; oil exploration is being actively pursued in continental strata of the Richmond.

Damian Nance,Margaret D. Thompson — North Atlantic: Geology and Continental Drift. Marshall Kay — Continental drift. Continental drift was a revolutionary scientific theory developed in the years by Alfred Wegener (), a German meteorologist, climatologist, and geophysicist, that put forth the hypothesis that the continents had all originally been a part of one enormous landmass or supercontinent about million years ago before breaking apart and drifting to their current locations.

The North Atlantic Craton (NAC) is an Archaean craton exposed in southern West Greenland, the Nain Province in Labrador, and the Lewisian complex in northwestern Scotland. The NAC is bounded by the Nagssugtoqidian orogen to the north and the – Ga Ketilidan–Makkovik mobile belt to the south.

The latter can be linked to the Lewisian-Malin boundary in Scotland, which in turn can be. He called his hypothesis continental drift. Evidence for Continental Drift.

Besides the way the continents fit together, Wegener and his supporters collected a great deal of evidence for the continental drift hypothesis. Identical rocks, of the same type and age, are found on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.

Continental drift is the theory that the Earth's continents have moved over geologic time relative to each other, thus appearing to have "drifted" across the ocean bed.

The speculation that continents might have 'drifted' was first put forward by Abraham Ortelius in The concept was independently and more fully developed by Alfred Wegener inbut his theory was rejected by many for. A brief introduction to Alfred Wegener's theory of continental drift, which would lay the groundwork for the development of plate tectonic theory, which essentially explains the geology of the.

Continental Drift and the Bible The Bible framework for earth history makes no statement about continental splitting, so it is unnecessary and unwise to take a "Biblical" position on the question. When God created the land and sea, the waters were "gathered together unto one place" (Genesis ), which may imply one large ocean and one large.
