Continental drift is the movement of continents over the Earth's surface and in their change in position relative to each other. The Continental Drift Controversy, Volume 4: Evolution into Plate Tectonics By Henry R. Mountain Building at Convergent Plate Boundaries. Why are there old and young mountains? Pamela: Alfred put forward the idea of continental drift that once upon a time, long, long, long ago, like order of 225-250 million years ago back in the Permian Period maybe all the continents formed one giant continent called Pangaea.

Plate tectonics is a combination of two earlier ideas, continental drift and sea-floor spreading. Occurs in lithosphere: strong, rigid layer in upper mantle. The edges of these plates, where they move against each other, are sites of intense geologic activity, such as earthquakes, volcanoes, and mountain building.
