Find your Pangaea home!

#1  Postby Calilasseia » Jul 03, 2018 3:00 pm

Here's a fun website - type in your home town or city, and find out where it was located on past continents in past geological epochs!

Will probably only work for major cities, so pick the nearest one to you, and see if it's on the list. But it might work for some smaller towns, especially in the US and Europe.

Enjoy!

Not even close. At the end Cretaceous the sea dividing the western and eastern halves of North America extended well into the Dakotas as is evidenced by the Fox Hills sandstone and Pierre Shale formations which represent near shore and offshore sedimentary environmental conditions respectively. These marine deposits abutt the terrestrial Hell Creek formation. This inland sea extended almost to present day Hudson Bay to the north. After a first trial fail of this magnitude I have little faith any of the rest of this is worth the time.
