Geologists from Australia and China modeled the movement of tectonic plates and found that a new supercontinent will appear on Earth in the future. At that point, the continents will merge and the Pacific Ocean will close, said the study, which was published in the journal National Science Review.

According to the scientists' findings, the change will cause Australia to collide with Eurasia and move toward the Americas. Then, all the continents will unite into one huge supercontinent, which will be called Amasia. From oceans there will remain only the Indian and Atlantic.

From research it follows that these changes will occur in 200-300 million years. Connecting the continents could happen in two ways: through the ocean, which was formed during the separation of the previous supercontinent, that is, introversively, or through the remains of the superocean, which surrounded it - extraversively.

All these changes, according to the researchers, will lead to a drastic change in the Earth's climate. Sea levels will be lower, and the vast interior of the supercontinent will become arid with high daily temperature variations.
