How researchers found Argoland, the lost continent

Dinosaurs were still alive. Argoland then extended into northwestern Australia, over 5,000 kilometers, or five times the distance separating the north and south of France. It’s hard not to notice it a priori. And yet this continent has almost disappeared! If we have assumed the existence of this “land of Argo” for thirty-five years, we have had all the trouble in the world to identify it under the ocean or among the emerging countries. Did it collapse into the bowels of the Earth due to plate tectonics? The answer is no! This ‘lost continent’, recently described in the literature as a ‘hot topic of geological exploration’, is finally being revealed. And it doesn’t really look like we imagined.
