Highly active tectonic forces established much of the terrain features found on Earth today. Volcanic activity was extensive throughout the world, which might explain in part why the Earth grew so warm during the Eocene. A band of volcanoes stretching from Colorado to Nevada produced a series of very violent eruptions between 30 million and 26 million years ago. The tall volcanoes of the Cascade Range from northern California to Canada erupted in great profusion one after another. 46 Historical Tectonics TABLE 2 THE DRIFTING OF THE CONTINENTS Age (Millions of Years) Quaternary Pliocene 3 11 Miocene 26 Gondwana Begin spreading near Galápagos Islands Opening of the Gulf of Aden Laurasia Opening of Gulf of California Change of spreading directions in eastern Pacific Birth of Iceland Opening of Red Sea Oligocene 37 Collision of India with Eurasia Eocene 54 Beginning spreading in Arctic Basin Separation of Greenland from Norway Separation of Australia from Antarctica Paleocene 65 Opening of the Labrador Sea Separation of New Zealand from Antarctica Opening of the Bay of Biscay Separation of Africa from Madagascar and South America Major rifting of North America from Eurasia Cretaceous 135 Separation of Africa from India, Australia, New Zealand, and Antarctica Jurassic 180 Beginning separation of North America from Africa Triassic 250 47 Plate Tectonics Figure 34 Columbia River basalt, looking downstream from Palouse Falls, Franklin Whitman counties Washington.

A single great ocean called Panthalassa stretched uninterrupted across the rest of the planet. Over the ensuing time, smaller parcels of land continFigure 29 Major mountain ranges resulting from continental collisions. These collisions crumpled the crust and pushed up huge masses of rocks into several mountain belts throughout many parts of the world (Fig. The sediments in the Tethys Sea separating Gondwana and Laurasia were squeezed and uplifted into various mountain belts, including the Ouachitas and Appalachians of North America and the ancestral Hercynian Mountains of southern Europe.

Calculations of the Earth’s heat flow suggested the continents were formed from the mantle below. Therefore, if continental drift occurred, uneven patterns of heat flow would exist, and no such anomaly was found. This placed severe restrictions on continental drift, for the continents were much thicker and therefore anchored securely in place. Studies of deep earthquakes at the ocean-continent boundaries, especially around the Pacific, demonstrated the deep structure of the continents with their roots well embedded in the upper mantle.
