Dear MEL Topic Readers,
This map lets you see where your hometown was on the Earth millions of years ago
Are you interested in how the surface of our planet looked like hundreds of million years ago? Even if you aren’t keen on geology, you might have heard about the movement of tectonic plates and the existence of supercontinents. About 750 million years ago, the earliest-known supercontinent began to break apart. The continents later recombined to form Pannotia roughly 600 to 540 million years ago, then finally created Pangaea, which broke apart 200 million years ago.
An American paleontologist recently created an interactive map that shows what Earth looked like in those eras and where a present location used to be then. You can also search it by the time when the first land animals appeared or when dinosaurs became extinct.
You don’t have to study geology to enjoy seeing what happened and when on Earth with this interactive map. https://dinosaurpictures.org/ancient-earth#400
