Question

what helped provide support for the plate tectonics theory in the 1960's?

1 Answer

  • The thing that helped support the theory of tectonic plates was¬†matches between minerals and fossils from tests done on different continents. The reason why is because all the continents were once connected, but at some point they split into pieces, thus forming the continents that we know of today. Them splitting also¬†created the tectonic plates.
