Biographies of Scots and Scots Descendants (D) Dick, Thomas
In 1838, this native of Angus wrote Celestian
Scenery which for the first time described the movements of the
earth’s surface that we now call continental drift and plate tectonics.
Dick suggested such things as that the bulge of brazil had once fit into
the west coast of Africa and proposed the then revolutionary idea that the
continents had once been joined.
