Continental Drift

Rift? Subduction? Collide?

These are the ways the continents and oceans that we know today were formed. Through massive forces, 14 giant Oceanic and Continental plates (some as thick as 70km!)  drift and float over the molten earth’s core.  Watch how these plates have moved over time and see for yourself what the globe was like when dinosaurs roamed the planet!
