Amasia, the next supercontinent, will form in 300 million years

6 October 2022

The ground beneath our feet is constantly shifting. In around three-hundred million years, all the landmasses we’re familiar with today will have merged to form a supercontinent some are already calling Amasia. So fas as geologists can tell, there have possibly been six such supercontinent formations in the past.

The three most recent supercontinents were Pangea, Gondwana, and Pannotia. Geologists think there were other supercontinents before these three, which are called Nuna (or Columbia), Rodinia, and Ur.

The formation of Amasia is going to involve a lot of tectonic activity between now and then. Too bad no one here today will be around it see it.
