Abstract: Results of research so far indicate that convection currents likely do not play a major role in continental drift.  However, it is known that moon and sun tidal forces are sufficient to distort the shape of the planet and likely is the energy source for continental drift in the form of tidal forces. This concept outlines those tidal forces at work on the ocean’s ridges, such as the Mid Atlantic Ridge (MAR). Magma entering fissures plus flexure at the ocean’s ridges mechanically generates sufficient movement to force the crust plates away from the ridges.
