What will the next Pangea be called?

Pangaea Proxima (also called Pangaea Ultima, Neopangaea, and Pangaea II) is a possible future supercontinent configuration. Consistent with the supercontinent cycle, Pangaea Proxima could occur within the next 300 million years.

Will Pangaea form again?

The answer is yes. Pangea wasn’t the first supercontinent to form during Earth’s 4.5-billion-year geologic history, and it won’t be the last. Next came Rodinia, which dominated the planet between 1.2 billion and 750 million years ago.

What year will Pangea reform?

For now it appears that in 250 million years, the Earth’s continents will be merged again into one giant landmass…just as they were 250 million years before now. From Pangea, to present, to Pangea Ultima!

How will continents look in the future?

Pangea broke apart about 200 million years ago, its pieces drifting away on the tectonic plates — but not permanently. The continents will reunite again in the deep future. The planet could end up being 3 degrees Celsius warmer if the continents all converge around the equator in the Aurica scenario.

Did humans live on Pangea?

Pangea existed 335,000,000 years ago, so there were definitely no humans (or even primates) on Pangea. There were some temporary land “bridges” which allowed for human migration from Africa to Australia, among other places.

What is Pangaea for kids?
