Do you Know? The future shape of the planet may imitate its ancient shape. According to one geologist, in 250 million years the landmasses which form the continents fuse together and maybe it becomes possible to walk to all four corners of the earth.
Ring Of Fire
The Ring of Fire is the major area in the basin of the pacific ocean where a large number of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur. The Ring of Fire is sometimes called the circum-Pacific belt. About 90% of the world’s earthquakes and 81% of the world’s largest earthquakes occur along the Ring of Fire.
Pangea Ultima or Pangea Proxima is a possible supercontinent configuration. Consistent with supercontinent cycle, It could occur within the next 250 million years. The whole scenario was based on the analysis of breakups and formation of supercontinents. This configuration is deliberated by Christopher Scotese.
He said: “Australia will be in collision with southeast Asia to a much larger degree, Fifty million years from now.” According to him, the plates do evolve slow and steady in the plate tectonic world until unless we have a disaster like continental collisions.
The movement of the continents is mapped using satellite tracking. The danger zone extends from the eastern coast of Japan to the outside of Australia and to the western coast of the North and South American continents.
