Origin of Continents and Oceans

Origin of Continents and Oceans
Alfred Wegener's book proposing that in the remote past the earth's continents were not separate (as now), but formed one supercontinent which later split apart, the fragments gradually drifting away from one another. Wegener created his subercontinent with attractive simplicity by tucking the point of South America into the Gulf of Guinea, coalescing North Amaerica, Greenland, and Europe, rotating Australia and Antarctica up through the Indian Ocean, and closing the remaining gaps. Wegener then explained various phenomena in historical geology, geomorphy, paleontology, paleoclimatology and similar areas of science in terms of this continetal drift.
