      Continental Drift Theory (CDT) Continental drift refers to the movement of the continents relative to each other. Polar wandering (similar to Continental Drift Theory) Polar wandering is the relative movement of the earth’s crust and upper mantle with respect to the rotational poles of the earth. Seafloor Spreading Theory (SFST). Polar Wandering and Continental Drift by Munyan, Arthur C., Editor and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at

    Continental drift and true polar wander are distinguished. If any true polar wander has occurred, it would appear as a rigid rotation of the lithosphere relative to a fixed spin axis. A mathematical method is proposed to decompose a general displacement field on a sphere into two parts: a part due to a rigid rotation and a remaining part of. Directions of natural remanent magnetization (NRM) have been determined at thirteen sites in two intrusive igneous bodies in the western Sierra Nevada, California.

It all depends on where you stand. Overview. In this activity paper compasses are used to illustrate how layers of rock can preserve a history of Earth’s magnetic field. A “paleomagnetic record” is constructed and interpreted first as a result of polar wandering, then as a result of continental drift.

The idea of continental drift was originally proposed by A L Wegener, Origin of Continents and Oceans (Braunschweig, ) in connection with his analysis of the origin of continents and oceans as a method to help explain anomalous distributive patterns of ancient climate zones [(Koppen-Wegener, Die Klimate der geologischen Vorzeit Borntraeger, Berlin )] The implications of this proposal seriously.

Book Description: This volume consists of papers given by geophysicists, botanists, and astronomers at a symposium on continental drift, held at the annual meeting of the Royal Society of Canada in Charlottetown in June Continental drift and true polar wander are distinguished.

If any true polar wander has occurred, it would appear as a rigid rotation of the lithosphere relative to a fixed spin axis. Polar Wandering, Continental Drift, and the Onset of Quaternary Glaciation drift are too small to permit changes in the configuration of the continents to have played an important role in the onset of Quaternary glaciation.

The possibility remains that vertical movements of land masses, many of which occurred at the end of the Pliocene, may. The book is based upon a symposium held at the 7th INQUA Congress at Boulder, Colorado, in and includes papers by American, Russian, Icelandic, German, English, and Cana-dian specialists.

The editor has prepared an extensive synthesis of the informa-tion. The book is organized in four subject groups: geology, past environments.

American Association of Petroleum Geologists, Tulsa, OK, – In International Geophysics, True Polar Wander. In paleomagnetism it is important to distinguish between the concepts of polar wandering and continental drift. All measurements in paleomagnetism are made with respect to the geographic pole as the frame of reference.

The present analysis suggests that the attempt of the Earth to adjust itself for polar stability is the driving mechanisms of continental drift and sea-floor spreading, and also that the Earth's wobble is rather a quasi-permanent (slow damping) phenomenon and has two components.

Summary. Evidence in the form of 75 yr of ILS data is accumulating which suggests that true polar wander may be currently taking place. It seems likely that true wander of some magnitude must always accompany plate motions, but the extrapolated ILS rate is an order of magnitude larger than the rate of true polar wander deduced from palaeomagnetic data over the past 55 Myr.
