User: Wegener named the supercontinent Pangaea, which means _____.

Weegy: 'All land' to my estimation. Breaking down the word in Greek, 'Pan' meaning 'all' and 'gae' could be an archaic root word for 'geo' meaning 'geology'?land. 'All lands'.

User: Glossopteris is an ancient, extinct species of

Weegy: It is a plant. Glossopteris (Greek glossa (???ssa), meaning "tongue", because the leaves were tongue-shaped) is the largest and best-known genus of the extinct order of seed ferns known as Glossopteridales (

User: The process by which lithospheric plates move apart creating spaces that are filled with hot magma is called _____.

Weegy: seafloor spreading
IfNotSo|Points 7291|

User: Mantle convection is a circulation of the heat emitted by the earth's _____.

User: The person who suggested that the continents were once a supercontinent, called Pangaea, but slowly drifted apart was

Weegy: does it have to be in a certain part of the world? I mean like in asia or something? I'm doing the research now, won't be long, ok?
seashell321|Points 960|

User: The process of heat transfer thought to be responsible for the movement of the lithospheric plates on the surface of the earth is

Weegy: This process is called subduction.
nothinganon|Points 774|

User: The plate tectonic theory can best be described as _____.

Weegy: The outermost part of the Earth's interior is made up of two layers: the lithosphere and the asthenosphere. Above is the lithosphere, consisting of the crust and the rigid uppermost part of the mantle. [ Below the lithosphere lies the asthenosphere. Although solid, the asthenosphere has relatively low viscosity and shear strength and can flow like a liquid on geological time scales. The deeper mantle below the asthenosphere is more rigid again due to the higher pressure. The lithosphere is broken up into what are called tectonic plates. In the case of Earth, there are eight major and many minor plates (see list below). The lithospheric plates ride on the asthenosphere. These plates move in relation to one another at one of three types of plate boundaries: convergent, or collisional boundaries; divergent boundaries, also called spreading centers; and transform boundaries. Earthquakes, volcanic activity, mountain-building, and oceanic trench formation occur along plate boundaries. The lateral movement of the plates is typically at speeds of 50?100 mm annually. ]
tegler|Points 15|

User: The plate tectonic theory can best be described as _____. earth's natural process by which its lithospheric plates slowly move about because of movement in the asthenosphere a process by which the asthenosphere is heated and creates convection cells a dynamic process of the earth's interior by which the inner core produces a magnetic field an idea that the continents used to resemble a supercontinent, Pangaea, but have now drifted apart

Weegy: a)earth's natural process by which its lithospheric plates slowly move about because of movement in the asthenosphere
pathwise|Points 1257|

User: The layer of the earth where mantle convection occurs and on which the earth's crust rests is the _____.

User: The layer of the earth that forms the earth's plates is the

Weegy: The layer of the Earth which makes up the plates is called the lithosphere.
jeifunk|Points 7249|

User: A transform boundary occurs where two tectonic plates _____.

Weegy: Plate tectonics is a scientific theory that describes the large-scale motions of Earth's lithosphere. The theory builds on the concepts of continental drift, developed during the first decades of the 20th century. [ It was accepted by the geoscientific community after the concepts of seafloor spreading were developed in the late 1950s and early 1960s. ]
Fanboy|Points 2521|
