Much of the current interest in continental drift arose from the discovery of large divergences between the polar wandering curves determined from the palaeomagnetic directions in different continents. The geological lines of evidence for continental drift, each indecisive yet as a whole striking, were thus supported in a remarkable way by quantitative evidence from an entirely separate branch of geophysics. The palaeomagnetic evidence from Europe and North America is of particular interest as… Expand
