Smith, Vine has made contributions on the history of Earth's magnetic field, and with Russell Ross has done studies on rocks from the lower continental crust to determine electrical conductivity. Vine admits that he became interested in geology, quite by accident, while studying for the geography portion of his upcoming "O" Ordinary level exams at the age of The textbook he was reading noted that geologists had no way to confirm that South America and Africa had once been connected, despite their similar coastlines.
