    Plate Tectonics. The popular theory of drifting continents and oceans is called "plate tectonics." 1 (Tectonics is the field of geology which studies the processes which deform the earth’s crust.) The general tenets of the popular theory may be stated as follows. Continental Drift and Plate Tectonics Continental Drift. Today, most people know that landmasses on Earth move around, but people haven’t always believed this. It wasn’t until the early 20th century that German scientist Alfred Wegener put forth the idea that the Earth’s continents were drifting. He called this movement Continental Drift.

    In , the German geologist and meteorologist Alfred Wegener first proposed that parts of the Earth’s crust slowly drift atop a liquid corc. The fossil record supports and gives credencc to the theories of continental drift and plate tectonics. 7- _____ in proposed that movement of land mass is due to heat-sustained convection.   Plate Tectonics It was from the continental drift theory, convection current theory and the theory of seafloor spreading, the theory of Plate Tectonics was formulated. In , McKenzie and Parker suggested the theory of plate tectonics. Morgan later outlined the theory in According to the theory of plate tectonics, the earth’s lithosphere is broken into distinct plates which are.

continental drift. He published his observations in A Geological Comparison of South America with South Africa(), and later he developed his ideas in Our Wandering Continents(). There he argued for the separation of Wegener's Pangea into the two super continents, Laurasia and Gondwana.

From Continental Drift to Plate Tectonics Continental Drift Alfred Wegener, in the first three decades of this century, and DuToit in the s and s gathered evidence that the continents had moved.

They based their idea of continental drift on several lines of evidence: fit of the continents, paleoclimate indicators.

One of the most important contributions to the development of plate tectonic theory was Alfred Wegener's publication of 'The origin of continents and oceans' which outlined his theory of Continental Drift. Wegener supported his argument with five lines of evidence.

Continental drift and plate tectonics are two theories explaining the geological evolution of the earth, specifically its crust. Continental drift is a theory first presented by Abraham Ortelius (Abraham Ortels) in The concept was independently developed by German geologist Alfred Wegener in The theory states that the continents are.

A quiz about Continental drift and plate tectonics Label the outer layers of the Earth Label Seafloor Spreading (Plate Divergence) Label the growth of new oceanic crust as two plates diverge.

Label Subduction (Plate Convergence) Label the desctruction of crust as two plates. All About Plate Tectonics: Earth's Plates and Continental Drift The Earth's rocky outer crust solidified billions of years ago, soon after the Earth formed.

This crust is not a solid shell; it is broken up into huge, thick plates that drift atop the soft, underlying mantle. PLATE TECTONICS is a masterfully written book. It is an outstanding example of scientific rhetoric, the purest form of neat, clean expository writing.

The author of the theory of continental drift―the direct ancestor of the modern theory of plate tectonics and one of the key scientific concepts of the past century―Wegener also made major contributions to geology, geophysics, astronomy, geodesy, Cited by: 5.

Frisch, Meschede, and Blakey answer all these questions and more through the presentation and explanation of the geo-dynamic processes upon which the theory of continental drift 5/5(1).

The plate tectonics theory is based on the continental drift theory in that it explains how the supercontinent drifted apart into several plates. It explains that the continents drifted apart because of the constant interaction between the earth’s tectonic plates and the heat of the earth’s core/10().

Because of this map, the theory of plate tectonics and continental drift was accepted widely across the world and still known today. A German geophysicist, Alfred Wegener, presented an idea in his book Origin of the Continents and Oceans, evoking the topic of continental drift, which is the gradual movement of the continents across the earth’s surface through geological time.

The theories of continental drift and plate tectonics are the foundation of modern geology. Scientists believe that there were several supercontinents like Pangaea that formed and broke apart over the course of Earth's billion year lifespan.

Scientists also now recognize that Earth is constantly changing and that even today, the continents are still moving and changing. Get this from a library. Plate tectonics and continental drift.

The concept of plate tectonics is that the lithosphere, which is the higher layers of the Earth’s surface, is separated into a number of plates that float independently over the mantle and along the boundaries that initiate the development of new crust, the building of mountains, and the seismic movement that triggers.
