tell me 2 ways the theory of continental drift was supported age of rocks, magnetic reversal, found the same fossils
t or f oceanic crust is younger at a ridge and older near the trench true
where do convection currents take place asthenosphere
what do scientist think move the tectonic plates convection currents
what two types of plate collision form mountain ranges continental and oceanic
why do you think fossils are sometimes found on the top of mountians there was on ocean there
