Continental drift is a theory that explains that how on earth the continents shifted their positions and moved over time. Today this theory is no longer valid and it is replaced by the science of plate tectonics. Alfred Wegener was the one who dev.   This innovative book uses the story of how a modern science achieved its present shape and focus to introduce the question of the nature of scientific change and its philosophical analysis.

Continental drift was a theory that explained how continents shift position on Earth's surface. Set forth in by Alfred Wegener, a geophysicist and meteorologist, continental drift also explained why look-alike animal and plant fossils, and similar rock formations, are found on different continents and why many of the continents appear to fit together like puzzle pieces into one super.

Dinosaurs, Dunes, and Drifting Continents: The Geology of the Connecticut River Valley/5(5). Continental drift is the theory that THE DRIFTING CONTINENTS book Earth's continents have moved over geologic time relative to each other, thus appearing to have "drifted" across the ocean bed.

The speculation that continents might have 'drifted' was first put forward by Abraham Ortelius in The concept was independently and more fully developed by Alfred Wegener inbut his theory was rejected by many for. This innovative book uses the story of how a modern science achieved its present shape and focus to introduce the question of the nature of scientific change and its philosophical analysis.

Continental drift was a revolutionary scientific theory developed in the years by Alfred Wegener (), a German meteorologist, climatologist, and geophysicist, that put forth the hypothesis that the continents had all originally been a part of one enormous landmass or supercontinent about million years ago before breaking apart and drifting to their current locations.

Alfred Wegener died in on an expedition on the Greenland icecap. For the most part the continental drift idea was put to rest for a few decades, until technological advances presented even more evidence that the continents moved and gave scientists the tools to develop a mechanism for Wegener’s drifting continents.

Summary. Drifting Continents This section describes a theory of how the continents came to be located where they are today. The section also gives evidence for the theory and explains why the theory was not accepted for many years.
