...Alfred Wegener ideas about Continental drift Alfred Wegener played crucial role in developing ideas understanding of geology. His ideas were revolutionary and innovative at that time. He pointed out that coastal lines of different continents have a lot in common, and that due to those similarities current landmasses might be fit together like pieces of a puzzle. For example east coastline of South America fit with the western coast of Africa. These observations allowed him to conclude that all continents were once a part of one big landmass. About 300 million years ago this big landmass (he called it Pangaea) was split...

The supercontinent later broke into small continent, which later drifted to the present positions. He supported the hypothesis with the help of the circumstantial...

...Alfred Wegener’s Theory (Continental Drift, Evidence) In order to explain the origin and formation of the continents, German geophysicist Alfred Wegener proposed in 1912 an explanation for this: the Continental Drift Theory. The theory states that “the continents had once been joined, and over time had drifted apart in a giant supercontinent called Pangaea.” (Sant, 2010; “Tectonic Plates,” 2011) One of the proofs of the theory is the jigsaw fit that the continents make with those adjacent to it. Another proof of the theory is that coal deposits usually associated with tropical areas are also found near the North Pole... ?RUNNING HEAD: PLATE TECTONICS Plate Tectonics                                 Alfred ...

However, Wegener was unable to explain the mechanism that allowed land masses to move and his theory was discredited by his peers. It was not until the 1960s that scientists were able to explain the mechanism, finally answering Wegener's problem, which was that solid continental and oceanic plates floated on a molten rock bed. This became known as Plate Tectonic Theory and has become widely accepted by geologists.
