About 140 million years ago, Greater Adria’which later got shoved beneath southern Europe’was a Greenland-size’landmass (submerged portions in gray-green) south of the continent.

Forget the legendary lost continent of Atlantis. Geologists have reconstructed, time slice by time slice, a nearly quarter-of-a-billion-year-long history of a vanished landmass that now lies submerged, not beneath an ocean somewhere, but largely below southern Europe.

The researchers’ analysis represents ‘a huge amount of work,’ says Laurent Jolivet, a geologist at Sorbonne University in Paris who was not involved in the new study.
