Plate tectonic evolution of the Arctic region (English)
Theories about how plate tectonics work have existed since the early 1900s, but have not been solidified until more modern times. Since the beginning theories as well as methods have evolved and given new insight of how the Earth works. How it is in constant change and its continents move along its surface. The evolution of the Arctic region have been relatively unknown for some time, but the evolution of new technology and climate change have made parts of the region more accessible for scientific research. This has made understanding of the evolution of the region over time easier. Methods have been developed to either reinforce or disprove others. Theories of how supercontinents have evolved for billions of years and the Arctic regions place in them have been developed. More local areas are also used for proof of different types of interactions between continents like collision and separation to reconstruct where and when these areas have been situated in comparison to different parts of the Earth. This study makes an attempt to show what scientists have come up with within this field and what methods they have used to make their interpretations.
