Question and answer
list and explain three pieces of evidence to support continental drift
Fossils- - Fossils of some animals are found on different continents separated by thousands of miles and an entire ocean. There is no physical way the animal could have gotten there on its own. [ Matching mountain belts- -Mountain belts on different continents are of the same composition, same age, and same tectonic forces created them. Magnetic striping- -The magnetic strips on the ocean floor,
originating from the mid-ocean ridges. These strips record the latitude of the crustal material and direction the poles are located. This information can be used to trace the crust's origin. This indicates the crust has moved since it was formed. ]
