The Scientific Case for EXPANSION TECTONICS

By simply changing our preconceived assumptions about the physical size and characteristics of the ancient Earth, the Expansion Tectonic small Earth crustal assemblages presented here represent a paradigm shift in how we visualise and understand the way the ancient supercontinents, modern continents, and modern oceans, have all originated and evolved through time.  

Expansion Tectonic small Earth models tell a completely different story about the origin of Earth’s supercontinents, continents, and oceans: one that shows a very simple, evolving, predictable, easily understood, and holistic process involving a progressively changing Earth surface area and surface curvature through time.


The benefits of Expansion Tectonic small Earth modelling studies to modem science are discussed in detail in each of my publications. From this published research the benefits to science can be summarised as:


In order to create small Earth models I simply remove from the Earth what was not previously there—intruded seafloor volcanic lava and eroded sediments—to end up with a Pangaean Earth comprising an assemblage of continental crustal components, and ultimately to a primitive Earth comprising an assemblage of equally primitive crustal components. I then simply displayed published physical data on the Expansion Tectonic small Earth models created and each of these model studies is shown to complement each other and fully substantiate an Expansion Tectonic Earth process.
