where is the continental drifing happening?

    Ever since about 200 million years ago when the Earth’s massive supercontinent, Pangaea, split into pieces, there has always continental drifting. The process of plate tectonics continues even today as all of the land massive very gradually move a few inches every year. While it is very unlikely that a noticeable difference can be seen in a lifetime, or even a hundred lifetimes, the continents are always changing. Today, the Atlantic and Indian oceans are growing in width by just a few inches each year. Additionally, the Red Sea has been growing in recent millennia and could someday be one of the earths largest oceans, but there is no telling what the planet will look like in another several million years.
