ES0806  Observe an animation of the breakup of Pangaea.

This animation shows how the locations of continents and islands have changed
over the past 150 million years. Reconstructions are based on data from ocean
drilling projects and other research. To generate the maps, scientists analyzed
data and calculated the positions of nearly 200 separate blocks of continental
and oceanic crust.
