    Continental drift describes one of the earliest ways geologists thought continents moved over time. Today, the theory of continental drift has been replaced by the science of plate tectonics. The theory of continental drift is most associated with the scientist Alfred Wegener. 2. What was Alfred Wegener’s hypothesis for continental drift, and why was his idea not accepted?

These are set apart by three first‐order tectonic boundaries, the Grenville Front (GF), Allochthon Boundary Thrust (ABT), and Monocyclic Belt Boundary Zone (MBBZ).

The belts are subdivided into terranes based on internal lithological character. The GF separates the Archean to Proterozoic foreland northwest of the orogen from reworked equivalents to the by: Early Mesoproterozoic tectonic history of the southwestern Grenville Province, Ontario: Constraints from geochemistry and geochronology of high-grade gneisses Author(s) Trond Slagstad.

The major units are the Grenville Front Tectonic Zone, the Central Gneiss Belt, the Central Metasedi.
