    Continental Drift and Sea Floor Spreading Theories Created By: Mr. Kreeger – A free PowerPoint PPT presentation (displayed as a Flash slide show) on - id: 56a3c5-MzkzM   Continental drift and seafloor spreading go hand in hand according to current theory. There is a sort of "which came first chicken or egg" aspect to the theory, in the sense that there is a question as to whether continental migration causes the sea floor to open from tension, or whether sea floor spreading caused by magma upwelling pushes the crust apart and moves the ://?qid=AAAyFWm.

    The book discusses the important physical and chemical properties of the crust and upper mantle in terms of models for crustal origin and evolution. The text also describes sea-floor spreading; magma associations; plate tectonics and continental drift. The phanerozoic orogenic systems and the precambrian crustal development are also :// Continental Drift Continental drift Continental drift A continental drift ‘flip book’ Sea‐floor spreading and continental drift Iranian Geology and Continental Drift in the Middle East Continental drift, paleoclimatology, and the evolution and biogeography of birds

    Continental drift is the horizontal relative movement of discrete continental plates (Wegener, ).. Plate tectonics is the horizontal relative movement of several discrete and mostly rigid surface-plate segments (Hess, ).. Seafloor spreading is the horizontal divergent plate motion observed at mid-ocean ridges (MORs) (Hess, ).. Subduction is the descent of oceanic lithosphere Sea floor spreading is where new oceanic crust is formed through volcanic activity and then moves away from the ridge. Subduction is when one tectonic plate moves under another tectonic ://
