By the way, this article took far longer than the average. Namely, two days to write and draw. Ouch.

But it is fun to do and I hope I didn't make too many mistakes, most of what is here are questions and more questions. Perhaps geologists are on the verge of some very interesting revelations about tectonic plate dynamics.


FYI..I happen to have a serpentine outcrop on land I own in western North Carolina..and therefore have researched it a bit...am aware there is a vein w/ multiple outcroppings that starts in Georgia, through w. NC, Washington DC, New Hampshire, Nova Scotia, crosses the Atlantic, then pops back up in Wales, then Norway.


Nice job on this, Elaine - I haven't had time to do more than scan it but I hope to read it more closely as the week goes on.

Yes, JB, you are right. When all the continents were united, they crashed into each other and when the new separation occured, it was NOT along the original lines....because the land SINKS behind and in front of mountain building collisions, this means, when tearing apart, the new cracks are along these depressions which are part of the process of the lithosphere collapsing.

The Paleozoic Era ended with the largest mass extinction in Earth's history, the Permian-Triassic Extinction Event. The effects of this catastrophe were so devastating that it took life on land 30M years to recover. There are now indications that the recovery may have been much faster.
