Any Geologists around? When watching videos about Plate Tectonics and Continental Drift, it always shows North America and the Gulf of Mexico,
breaking apart from Pangaea going North West.
I was looking at Google Maps and it looks to me, like the Gulf of Mexico with the Yucatan Peninsula, and the Caribbean Islands, used to be just
South-west of it's current location. Meaning the Plate is moving North-East, not North-West.
Just something i noticed. Probably wrong. Just want to hear from some experts. I tried to save a snapshot of the location from Google Maps but
couldn't. I tried to save it in paint so i could circle it but could not.
Its South of the Gulf of California, and West of Ecuador. Where those two lines would meet. Sorry i couldn't post the screen shot. Like i said,
something i noticed, want to hear from the experts.
