Dec 6 - Piece of Africa Found Under Alabama
 

 
image

quarter of a billion years ago Africa slammed into North America and left a scar that can be seen today with special instruments.

Continental breakups are proving to be just as destructive as some human separations. Geologists say they have found a fragment of Africa embedded in the southeastern U.S., a remnant of the rift that occurred between the two continents some 250 million years ago.

Scientists have known for some time of the presence of a strange band of magnetic rock that stretches from Alabama through Georgia and offshore to the North Carolina coast, but its origin has been debated. The ribbon of rock is buried about 9 to 12 miles below the surface.

According to a new study published in the journal Geological Society of America, the fissure, known as the Brunswick Magnetic Anomaly, was created hundreds of millions of years ago when the crusts of Africa and North America were yanked apart like stitches in a piece of cloth.



"There was an attempt to rip away Florida and southern Georgia," geologist Robert Hatcher, of the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, told Discovery. "So you have a failed rift there Ö There are pieces of crust that started in Africa."

Crustal rocks keep records of Earthís magnetic field. The magnetism is stored by minerals, particularly strongly magnetic minerals like magnetite. Scientists can discover important information about plate tectonics, the large-scale motion of Earthís outermost shell, by determining the source of distinct striped magnetic anomalies Ė kind of like studying the fingerprints left behind at a crime scene.

Scientists have attributed the Brunswick Magnetic Anomaly to a belt of 200 million-year-old volcanic rocks that were formed around the time the Atlantic Ocean was shaped. The location of the magnetic anomaly is thought to mark the point where North America separated from the rest of the supercontinent Pangaea.

Pangaea is believed to have been created millions of years ago after Earthís tectonic plates collided, drifted apart, and then smashed into each other again before going their separate ways for good.

The lead author of the study, Elias Parker Jr. of the University of Georgia, says there might be a larger portion of Africa left behind in the southeast U.S. than already detected.

"This is just the start to understanding the structure of the Southeast U.S.," Parker told Discovery. "What I'm trying to do is come up with a simple explanation for this."

Another theory about the origin of the Brunswick Magnetic Anomaly says that the rift is much older and could mark the original collision zone between the two tectonic plates.

This doesn’t make sense. If they were once pieced together wouldn’t that make the whole n and s a piece of Africa?

What? Isnt it common knowledge that the countries were once combined? What is that like 6th grade GEO?

Sh*t, if Africa still want Florida they can have it for free.

I know what I said n*gga....about everything, not necessarily about OP, but you can include that too.


So let me ask you something. Do you think we’re being told everything in our history books coming up as a youth?

Let me guess you you believe everything your told

I dont believe we are fully capable of knowing everything that happened in the past. Which is why we continue to find new things daily..that doesnt mean we were lied to

Ah..ur a Knicks fan..nvm fam you got it

Is withholding evidence the same as lying?

Ur confusing withholding with being ignorant to the fact..which is the point of my initial post..what about OP makes you think we were lied to here? When you urself (after being made a fool) said you knew the countries were once connected

Bruh, this sh*t confused me as well, the way it was written.

First they say Africa and N. America slammed into each other. Then they say they ripped apart. Then later in the article they say Pangea started when continents drifted together, then apart, then slammed into each other?
