It is part of a natural cycle, scientists say, where the tectonic plates come together in a supercontinent, which then breaks again.
The last time it happened, a supercontinent known as 'Pangea' Established about 310 million years ago, before breaking up 180 million years ago.

The future continent may take some shapes: Novopangea, Pangea Ultima, Aurica and Amasia.
In the Amaziah scenario, for example, a collision would see North and South America together – and the Arctic Ocean disappeared as Asia joins the Americans, all caused by Earth's 'Tectonic Plates' Moving.
The researchers say that they believe that Novopangaee is the most likely.
The researchers write, if we consider that the present day conditions remain, so that the Atlantic continues to open and the Pacific keeps closing, we have a scenario where the next supercontinent forms in the antipodes of Pangea.
The Americas would collide with the north-drifting Antarctica, and then in the already merging Africa-Eurasia.
The supercontinent that would then form is called Novopangea, or Novopangaea.
