Everything You Need To Know About The Earth’s Future Mega Continent: ‘Amasia’
In a span of 250 million years, scientists have recently predicted that a new "mega-continent" known as Amasia" will soon be formed. Through a new set of simulations conducted, researchers from Yale University, in collaboration with Japan's Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology, has claimed that North and South America will allegedly crunch together, with the Caribbean Sea and Arctic Ocean disappearing, leaving Asia to join the Americas. It was found that this phenomenon will soon take place due to the movement of the earth's enormous tectonic plates that have drifted together and apart over hundreds and millions of years.
The Earth's Future Mega Continent: 'Amasia'
According to reports revealed by Science News, a significant number of geologists have noted that Pangaea was just the most recent in a series of mighty super-continents, but over time, Earth's crust have drifted together until it has then fallen apart. Using some of the most powerful computer programs and geologic clues from rocks around the world, researchers are now able to paint a picture of these long-lost worlds and reportedly been able to predict what the Earth will soon become millions of year from now.
Furthermore, as per Daily Mail, the research, which was published in the journal Nature, has been based on a theory called Orthoversion which states that after a supercontinent goes through a process of breaking apart, the continents are then known to initially drift apart in return while being trapped within a north-south band of subduction, where one plate dips below another. Study lead author Dr. Ross Mitchell, said that after those water bodies close, mankind is on its way to the next supercontinent. Ultimately, it was also found that the research has reportedly been supported by a paper published in the journal Geology by Dr. Masaki Yoshida, a geologist based at Japan's Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC).
