What continent did north America used to be attached to during pangaea?
south america :)
Gondwana. (Eurasia, South America, and Africa)
Yes, it was during the time of Pangaea.
Pangaea is known as the super continent, a super continent is when all the continents fit together like a jigsaw puzzle. this theory was known by Alfred Wegener. so coming back to question during the mesozoic era Pangaea was no more. all the continents drifted apart during the mesozoic era.
None, Antarctica has only drifted there in the last 200 million years, following the breakup of Pangaea.
All of them. "Pangaea", from the Latin "pan" meaning "all" and Gaea, the mother goddess of Earth, means "all of the Earth"; it was a single supercontinent that included all of the major land masses. The western bulge of South America was probably tucked in just south of the eastern bulge of Europe.
The Appalachians are younger than Pangaea because they were formed during the process in which North America removed itself from Pangaea and into the west.
All the continents were called Pangaea during the time of the dinosaurs.
according to scientist the answer is yes, yes they were connected to form a super continent known as Pangaea research Pangaea on Google or something to find out more
the super continent of gondwana to the south,the continent of siberia to the north ,and early formation of the small continene of euramerica in between
During the early Jurassic, Pangaea split into a northern and southern half. The former was Laurasia, and the latter was called Gondwana. Laurasia began to split into North America and Eurasia during the late Jurassic. South America and Africa didn't split until the Cretaceous.
Pangaea began to break up approximately 200 million years ago. It was once a super continent that became surrounded by Panthalassa which was a single global ocean.
Pangea, also spelled Pangaea, was the name of the supercontinent that existed and started to break apart during the Mesozoic Era.
The continent of North America was referred to as 'The Land of America' in the year 182. There is little else known about what people thought of the continent of North America during this time period.
The original super-continent of Pangaea broke up about 200 million years ago during the Paleozoic era forming the continents of Gondwanaland and Laurasia. Gondwanaland later fragmented into Antarctica, Africa, Australia, India and South America. Similarly, Laurasia broke up into Asia, Europe and North America. The current 7 continents have been more or less in their current positions for the past few million years.
During the Permian era was the unified Pangea. During the Triassic period, North America drifted west, Africa stayed in the same general area and the Poles (north and south) moved. In the Jurassic there was further spitting, with the Cretaceous period South America broke away from Africa and today the splits are even more distinct.
You can tell because if that form of species originated in a certain area and if the fossil is found in a different area or continent you can tell that the species traveled then the land mass or super continent Pangaea separated and that species landed over there Example: If a species of animal originated in Africa and that specie was found in South America you can tell that that specie during the Pangaea time… Read More
When the dinosaurs lived, there was only one enormous continent known as Pangea (some people spell Pangea "Pangaea").
Asia is one continent on its own. There are no two continents which come together which make up the Asian continent. However, during the time the continents were all together, this was known as Pangaea.
Pangaea started to break up during the Triassic Period. It continued to split apart in the Jurassic Period and was almost complete in breaking up in the Cretaceous Period. After that it formed into the landmasses that we see today.
Pangaea was the supercontinent that existed during the Paleozoic and Mesozoic eras about 250 million years ago.
Scientists are not so sure because during the time of the dinosaurs, which lasted millions of years, continental drift has caused the super continent, Pangaea, to move into different landforms
During the Triassic Period, the landmasses formation was a single continent called the Pangaea. Due to the continent size, the inland were far from the oceans. Desert areas were wide and the moisture needed for vegetation are only around the continent's edges.
Dinosaurs first evolved when all the continents were joined together as Pangaea. When the continents split up, they already lived on all of them. At times, land bridges connected continents, such as Asia or Europe to North America, during which times dinosaurs from each continent would spread to the other.
Gondwanaland (also Gondwana) was a super-continent that existed during a long period ending about 200 million years ago, which broke up into India, Arabia, Africa, Australia, South America, and Antarctica. It formed the southern hemisphere portion of Pangaea, the single continental landmass of the Earth at the time. The northern half is referred to as Laurasia, which formed Eurasia, North America, and Greenland.
The super continent that broke apart to form the modern continents was termed Pangaea. It existed during the late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic eras, approximately 300 million years ago.
Roughly where it is now between N America and Europe. Pangea first split east west (in the Triassic) forming Laurasia (northth) and Gondwanaland (south) with an ocean called 'Tethis' in between. In the Cretaceous Laurasia spilt north south to open up the North Atlantic and Greenland moved with the N American continent to its present position.
how were land organisms affected by the breakup of pangaea
Pangaea was a supercontinent that existed during the late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic eras .
Pangaea, the most recent supercontinent, broke up during the Late Triassic period, Mesozoic era, about 200 My BP.
Pangaea began to break apart during the Early to Middle Jurassic period, about 175 million years ago.
Pangaea. it was the super continent that existed during the late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic eras, forming about 300 million years ago. after that the continents were separated and drifted to any directions.
Iceland is a volcanic island that was created 16 to 18 million years ago. The age of Pangea is 400 millon years. So Island did not exist when the continents were still connected in the super continent of Pangea.
The break up of Pangaea changed the climate
Many people believe that Alfred Wegener invented the theory of continental drift. Wegener had been struck by the remarkable fit of the coastlines of South America and Africa. But, unlike the others who had also wondered about this, Wegener sought out many other lines of geologic and paleontologic evidence that these two continents were once joined. While recuperating in a military hospital from an injury suffered as a German soldier during World War, Wegener was… Read More
During the tertiary period, Pangaea broke up into separate continents, with major mountains formed in North America, Europe, and Asia. Earth's climate cooled, and continental glaciers were formed in Antarctica.
During the time of Pangaea, about 250 million years ago, most of Earth's water was collected in a huge ocean called Panthalassa
Pangaea began to break up in the early Mesozoic Era. Pangaea may have actually been the last of four super continents found on Earth.
The name Pangaea appeared in 1928 during a symposium to discuss Alfred Wegener's theory of continental drift.
During the Mesozoic Era
During Mesozoic Era
Paleontologists believe that they did.
Technically, 'America' did not exist during the period categorised as the European Renaissance. However, during the same time period the continent that is now called North America was largely populated by various hunter/gatherer tribes. On the continent now known as South America, a well establish agricultural civilisation existed. (possibly several civilisations?) The level of technologies available at that time is still fiercely debated.
No. Pangaea is thought to have broken up about 240 million years ago during the Triassic Period, while early man only evolved during the last few million years.
When Pangaea was in existence, the main animals were reptiles and amphibians. During this time, birds developed also.
he thought that there was a pangaea, a super continent, and proof was found later of of sea floor spreading and fossils of tropical plants in antarctica. if u need more info its called google look it up!
Africans first set foot in the continent of America during or round about the age of the Egyptian Dynasties. According to recent study, it was deduced that they embarked on commerce voyages to and fro the continent supplying the channels with salt and precious metals.
What is the name of the single giant continent that existed millions of years ago during the time of the dinosaurs?
Pangaea (Pangæa) was the latest of several supercontinents that existed during the prehistoric periods on Earth. It formed about 300 million years ago, then began to rift about 200 million years ago, creating the current continents.
