  Palaeos Earth: Geography: Pangea
More specifically Pangea was assembled by the collisions of three main blocks, Gondwana, Euramerica, and Siberia, during Permo-Carboniferous time, around 350 to 260 million years ago.
Pangea was essentially complete by the Kungurian Age (late early Permian).
The hot arid conditions that persisted over much of the supercontinent for all this time favoured reptiles over therapsids and mammals; hence all the large-bodied (and most small-bodied) ecological niches were filled by eureptilia, especially archosaurs, with amphibians continuing only in rivers and ponds, and synapsids becoming progressively smaller and less diverse, and finally nocturnal.

 Pangea: ICEM99 paper
Discussions which I have had throughout the waste management community since the Pangea concept was launched have made clear that there is a widespread appreciation of the advantages of shared disposal and that many insiders feel that the time is ripe to have an open debate on the issue.
Finally, since Pangea is a private initiative with no direct involvement of the Australian government, it is appropriate to mention the reactions to the project to date and the current status.
Pangea was developed, accordingly, with a strong focus on the long-term safety of repositories and on the security of weapons source material.

 What Was Pangea?
Pangea's Triassic period not only saw the first turtles and mammals, but it gave birth to creatures that would come to rule the world for the next 150 million years: dinosaurs.
By the end of this period 65 mya, the continents were crawling towards their present-day positions, and the reign of the mighty dinosaurs came to a sudden end with the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction event.
Though Pangea was not the first supercontinent it was certainly the most interesting in terms of evolutionary life.

 Pangea - an international repository
But because we had planned for the Pangea concept to be presented in a more orderly manner where all of the affected parties, including governments, potential clients and interested environmental groups would have been provided with appropriate briefings prior to a planned media launch.
Needless to say, Pangea will be a risky concept and therefore it is appropriate that those organizations which support Pangea now and in its future development phases should be rewarded if we are successful in proportion to the risks they have taken.
Pangea has been supported by BNFL and Nagra and by Golder Associates, who provided the support which enabled the original concept to be progressed.

Pangea came together 250 million years ago, changing climates and affecting all the organisms on and around it.
When Pangea was assembling, many coastal areas and shallow pools on shorelines disappeared, and arid deserts formed where lush environments had once been.
Due to the enormity of Pangea, there were large parts of the interior that "could no longer be cooled or warmed by steadying, maritime influences" which would result in summer weather over 100 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and extremely cold temperatures during the night (Ward, 1994).

Plate tectonics and volcanism are very closely related, and all due to the fact that the Earth still contains a lot of heat which is trying to escape to the surface.
Plate tectonics seems to have been happening for at least the past 3 billion or so years of the Earth's history, with the continental fragments of crust sometimes moving apart from each other (as oceanic crust is created to fill in the space), and at other times with the continental pieces of crust colliding.
At at least one time all the oceanic fragments mashed together to form one super continent, and geologists have named this "Pangea".
