Anomaly in Atlantic Ocean first detection of tectonic plate peeling apart

Scientists have identified what they believe could be the first evidence of a tectonic plate peeling into 2 different layers under the Atlantic Ocean. This still hypothetical division incident detected in computer modeling could be the reason behind the birth of a new subduction zone where one tectonic plate ends up being driven under another. This process may also help underlay the foundations of a new supercontinent.
