Welcome to my home page. This site portrays my work on the Supercontinent cycle and the global glaciation. In brief, the hypothesis proposes that the revolution of the solar system around the galactic center results in a Supercontinent cycle on the surface of the Earth. Formation of every Supercontinent causes a global glaciation; breakup of the Supercontinental crust thaws the ice age and floods the continental regions .
Even though the Earth was formed around 4500 million years ago (Ma), Supercontinent cycle appears to be initiated only around 2800 Ma. It appears that the Earth underwent six complete Supercontinent cycles from the breakup of the first Supercontinent and the present is in the middle of the seventh cycle. Further details of the hypothesis can be found at the following links and other related pages on this site.
Pause: Towards the Unification of Earth Sciences
11th March, 2001
This is the revised version of the initial hypothesis posted on 1st August, 2000 as Plate Tectonics and the Global Climate. This article discusses about the cause of global glaciation or the snowball Earth event and its similarities with the ancient stories of global deluge. It appears that the period of Supercontinental breakup was described as the global deluge in the stories of ancient cultures. This article also attempts to draw an unified picture of the Earth Sciences.
Origin and Continuation of Plate Tectonics
18th August, 2002
This article explains the cause of the Plate Tectoonics as the revolution of the solar system around the galactic center. Tides resulting from the gravitational attraction of the galactic center breaks and reassembles the continental crust in every two cycles of the solar system. Inner core nucleation began with the beginning of the Supercontinent cyle around 2800 Ma.
Histroy from the Ancient Texts and It's Relevance to the Science
18th August, 2002
This article extracts the descriptions of the global deluge from Vedic, Hebrew and Zoroastrian cultures and explains the relevance of those stories to the Science. Seven Manvantara cycles, seven Earths and seven Karshvars are nothing but the seven Supercontinents formed on the surface of the Earth.
