Continental drift, modern era. Map of the Earth showing the continents as they are today, 200 million years after the start of the break-up of the ancient supercontinent of Pangea. The Earth's continents move over the surface of the Earth, driven by movements of the fluid mantle below the crust. As the movement of the continents continues, a new supercontinent, called Pangea Ultima, will form in about 250 million years.
