Over at PT "Kris" was asked:
|The Atlantic Ocean is ~150,000,000 inches wide. The spreading rate has been measured by GPS (like a car navigator) at ~1 inch per year. There are multiple other lines of evidence that confirm this spreading rate. How old is the Atlantic ocean? |
and "Kris" replied:
It’s as old as when the name “Atlantic” was first applied.
The water in the Atlantic Ocean is of variable age, depending on how it is measured.
The area or volume of the water in the Atlantic Ocean is also of variable size and age. Plate tectonics, tidal fluctuations, river runoff, weather, and all that jazz ya know.
Did I miss anything? It’s late and I’m sleepy. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
