Novopangea is a possible future supercontinent, postulated by Roy Livermore (now at the University of Cambridge) in the late 1990s. It assumes closure of the Pacific, docking of Australia with eastern Asia, and northward motion of Antarctica.

The development of the three hypothetical supercontinents: Amasia, Novopangea, and Pangaea Ultima, was illustrated in a 2007 New Scientist article.1
