New Pangaea Proxima Supercontinent

New Pangaea Proxima Supercontinent

From Year 0 (BCE/CE): 250000000

Predictive models like “Pangaea Proxima” (sometimes called “Next Pangaea” or “NeoPangaea”) suggest the formation of a new supercontinent in about 250 million years, potentially sooner. This model suggests that “ALL” of Earth’s continents might come together to form a single massive landmass. Perhaps even with South America and Africa coming back together!

If this potential continent forms, it will be similar to the ancient supercontinent Pangaea, which existed about 335 to 175 million years ago during the late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic eras. This massive landmass could dramatically alter global climate patterns, biodiversity hotspots, and even human geopolitical landscapes. This model, the Pangaea Proxima model, is but leading model of several about how the continents will rearrange in the distant future.
