As the fountains closed, the ocean floor sank, forming new and much deeper ocean basins (such as foot deep Mariana Trench), permitting the continents to drain and emerge from the waters. Today's oceans eloquently testify to God's creative power, His judgement at the Flood, and His provision today. _____ 1. Engel, L. The continents and oceans move with the movement of these plates. The present shape and arrangement of the continents and ocean basins could be attained because of continuous relative movement of different plates of the second Pangaea since carboniferous period. Plate tectonic theory is bases on the evidences of: (i) Sea- floor spreading, and.

•Currently, the Pacific Ocean basin is shrinking as other ocean basins expand. •Destruction of sea floor occurs in subduction zones. •Seismicity is the frequency, magnitude and distribution of earthquakes. Earthquakes are concentrated along oceanic ridges, transform faults, trenches and island arcs. •Tectonism refers to theFile Size: 2MB.

  Oceanography- Origin of Ocean basin Episode - 3. प्लेट विवर्तनिकी और पृथ्वी की बड़ी छोटी प्लेटें-PLATE TECTONIC AND. Abstract. The obvious question to ask about the sea floor is how deep it is and why. The overall depth distribution first became known through the voyage of H. M. S. Challenger (Fig. ). We see that there are two most common depths: a shallow one near sea level (shelf seas), and a deep one between 1 and 5 km (normal deep ocean).Author: Eugen Seibold, Wolfgang H. Berger.

Since its inception modern geology has been faced with an important group of problems: explaining parallel formations that are separated by great distances of sea; accounting for isolated life forms in widely separated areas (such as lemurs in Madagascar and India); explaining pre-pleistocene glaciations, and similar problems/5(7).

A n ancient trans-Pacific ridge from the Marianas Islands to Chile started to disappear m illion years ago. Its trace is now evident only in a belt of atolls and guyots which have subsided 1–2 km. N o indications of older generations of oceanic ridges are found.

The continents and ocean basins are the fundamental relief features of the earth. This is why they are also called as first order relief features. The origin of these reliefs is associated with endogenetic forces which in turn are responsible for gigantic movements of lithospheric plates on the earth’s crust.

Julius Kaljuvee, Ivan Reinwald, and Estonian pioneering ideas on meteorite impacts and cosmic neocatastrophism in the early 20th centuryCited by: A few scientists have attempted to solve the problems of the origin of the continents and ocean basins on the basis of fundamental principles of geom­etry.

The pantagonal dodecahedral hypothesis (dodeca is a Greek word which means twelve) of Elie de Beaumont is considered to be the first attempt in this field but the tetrahedral hypothesis of Lowthian Green is most significant of all the hypotheses based on.

Among the supporters of Wegener’s hypothesis of the origin of continents and oceans were paleobiogeographers like Edgar Dacqué and Edgar Irmscher, who pointed out, in a number of publications between andthat Wegener has solved an important problem which the other two candidate theories could not address.

KENNEDY ONE of the unexpected discoveries in earth science in the previous century was that of a fundamental difference between continents and ocean basins. Ocean basins are not merely the low lying parts of the Earth's surface flooded by salt water but are great.

He searched the scientific literature for geological and paleontological evidence that would buttress his theory, and he was able to point to many closely related fossil organisms and similar rock strata that occurred on widely separated.

Continents and ocean basins being fundamental relief features of the globe are considered as ‘relief feature of the first order’. There are different views, concepts, hypothesis and theories regarding the origin of the continents and ocean basins have been put forth by the scientists from time to time.
