At a Glance

We live on a restless planet; the continents are long-lived and constantly moving while the oceans are ephemeral, being created and destroyed throughout the 4.5 billion years of Earth History. These Plate Tectonic processes are epitomized by the Mediterranean area, a sea born out of the closure of a great ocean – Tethys. Today the remnants of this ocean are the Mediterranean, Black and Caspian Seas. It is the northward -movement of the African plate into European plate – particularly over the last 180 million years – that has shaped the Mediterranean as we know it today and throughout recent geological and historical times.
