Why did Pangaea break up?



  1. 0 Votes

    It broke up because of plate tectonics. The Earth’s continental plates move as a result of an effect known as continental drift. In a nutshell, the earth’s surface is split up into various pieces that overlap each other in areas, smash into each other in others, sometimes pull apart, and other possible interactions. These plate interactions cause mountains to form, earthquakes, and the break up/reformation of the landmasses. Even today the continents are in motion, it’s just a very slow process, taking millions of years.
