Our Future Earth

Jan 6, 2010



THIS POST IS ABOUT FUTURE EARTH
The above image shows the prediction of how earth looks like after 250 million years from now.

THE ISLANDS AND CONTINENTS OF EARTH KEEPS ON MOVING FROM 200 MILLIONS AGO
The Earth is going to be a very different place 250 million years from now.
It was show in the picture above.
Africa is going to merge with Europe as Australia migrates north to merge with Asia. Meanwhile the Atlantic Ocean will probably widen for a spell before it reverses course and later disappears.




The image in left shows exactly how earth looks before 250 million years .
Two hundred and fifty million years ago the landmasses of Earth were clustered into one supercontinent .The surface of the Earth is broken into large pieces that are slowly shifting by a gradual process called "plate tectonics".

 The present-day continents slowly converge during the next 250 million years to form another mega-continent: Pangaea Ultima. Among the predictions made by plate tectonics: Africa is likely to its northern migration, pinching the Mediterranean closed and driving up a Himalayan-scale mountain range in southern Europe.

What's it like to see two continents collide? Just look at the Mediterranean region today.
Africa has been slowly colliding with Europe for millions of years, Scotese said. "Italy, Greece and almost everything in the Mediterranean is part of (the African plate), and it has been colliding with Europe for the last 40 million years."
That collision has pushed up the Alps and the Pyrenees mountains, and is responsible for earthquakes that occasionally strike Greece and Turkey, Scotese noted.

"The Mediterranean is the remnant of a much larger ocean that has closed over the last 100 million years, and it will continue to close," he said. "More and more of the plate is going to get crumpled and get pushed higher and higher up, like the Himalayas."
Australia is also likely to merge with the Eurasian continent.

"Australia is moving north, and is already colliding with the southern islands of Southeast Asia," he continued. "If we project that motion, the left shoulder of Australia gets caught, and then Australia rotates and collides against Borneo and south China -- sort of like India collided 50 million years ago -- and gets added to Asia". Meanwhile, the Americas will be moving further away from Africa and Europe as the Atlantic Ocean steadily grows.
