Plate Tectonics And Past Climate Changes

• Originated from two super continents (Gondwana and Laurasia) continents have since been drifting across the surface of the earth through complex geological means

• Plate tectonics played a very important role in determining the climates successions over the continents

• Due to plate tectonics, continents have changed dramatically across time and drifted across the globe (they are still drifting today)

• As continents drifted across the globe, they experienced different climate zones depending of the latitude they were located at

• Such continental climate variations driven by continental drift is a very slow process which is measured in millions of years
