From this data, they put together a projected positioning of continents in our distant future.
Evans and his team predict that the Americas and Asia will join in 50 to 200 million years, with an average of about 100 million years from now.
(So, get ready and pack up your bags for the big move.)
Their results show up online on February 8, 2012, within the journal Nature. Their paper is entitled 'Supercontinent cycles and the calculation of absolute palaeolongitude in deep time' (Nature 482,208-211(09 February 2012)doi:10.1038/nature10800).
Read more about their study in the February 9, 2012 Fox News article 'How Earth's next supercontinent (Amasia?) will form.'
The article, which is associated with its figures on the resulting land masses, state: 'A prediction of the future supercontinent, Amasia, named for its fusing the Americas and Asia by closure of the Arctic Ocean and Caribbean Sea."
And, "Predicted convergence directions are shown with red arrows. Amasia will be located 90° away from the geographic center of the last supercontinent Pangaea -- near present-day Africa.'
Page two concludes with a neighborly look at our future.
