Title Subject Speaker

Wandering Continents
.... the evolution of the Atlantic Ocean

Please Note
This is second wednesday of March


We live on a dynamic planet. Continents and oceans have come and gone throughout Earth's history.  Early ideas on "Continental drift" formulated from the southern hemisphere, were met with great scepticism.  However, evidence from the Gondwanan land masses of Africa, South America and Australia (and Atlantic Ocean) ultimately provided a compelling argument for what would become the unifying concept for planet Earth - Plate Techtonics.
