Pangaea or Pangea is the name given to the supercontinent that existed during the Paleozoic and Mesozoic eras, before the process of plate tectonics separated each of the component continents into their current configuration.
The name was coined by Alfred Wegener, chief proponent of Continental Drift in 1915.
