Alfred Wegener is G.
Transcript of Alfred Wegener is G.
on seperated continents matched very closely
together. The Appalachian Mountains in North
America matched with the Scottish Highlands.
He also found that fossils found in certain places
indicated that there was a climate different from
the climate today. Alfred created the theory of
continental drift. He claimed that all of the continents
were once joined together to form a single mass
called Pangea and it had split. He wasn't the first
to suggest Pangea, but he was the first to present
evidence. He was drafted into the German army in 1914. Alfred was released after being injured. He died one or two days later after returning from a rescue mission from Greenland. After he had finished school he studied physics, astronomy and meteorology at the Friedrich Wilhelms University and earned his Ph.D. in astronomy under the direction of Julius Bauschinger in 1905. His main interest was in Meteorology. Created By: Mindy & Richard Nguyen
