  • Supercontinents: A Formal Analysis

    This essay on supercontinents was a tough piece to write about, but it was fun and I enjoyed writing about it. I had to think scientifically, but I also had to consider the audience on writing this paper. I had to go back and ask myself multiple times if the audience would understand this and be interested in reading this. I had to ask if this was too confusing, and if it was, what could I do to make it clearer and easier for the audience understand. This was probably the toughest essay out of all the ones that I’ve had to write about so far because I had to combine the flow of facts with the consideration of the audience. I had to find out how the supercontinents were made, what it took to make them, and what were the aftereffects of them,…

  • Write An Essay On Gondwana And Its Effects On Supercontinents

Eventually, there will be different arrangements in an extensive history…

  • Essay On Wegener's Theory Of Continental Drift

    Dear US Geological Survey, I think that you should accept Alfred Wegener’s Theory of Continental Drift. There is a large amount of realistic evidence to prove that this theory did occur. Wegener’s theory is that all seven continents were once joined into a supercontinent called Pangaea. He believes that after continents were in that supercontinent, they gradually moved apart over more than a hundred years ago and will continue to move in the future. This Theory of Continental Drift is supported…

  • Rift Valley Essay

    Coal reserves have been found in Antarctica, 500km from the South Pole. Due to the current climate of Antarctica only feasible explanation behind this discovery is that there has been a change in latitude throughout the continent.
