Age, spreading rates, and spreading asymmetry of the world's ocean crust
We present four companion digital models of the age, age uncertainty, spreading rates, and spreading asymmetries of the world's ocean basins as geographic and Mercator grids with 2 arc minExpand
Global continental and ocean basin reconstructions since 200 Ma
Global plate motion models provide a spatial and temporal framework for geological data and have been effective tools for exploring processes occurring at the earth's surface. However, publishedExpand
Phanerozoic polar wander, palaeogeography and dynamics
Abstract A significant number of new palaeomagnetic poles have become available since the last time a compilation was made (assembled in 2005, published in 2008) to indicate to us that a new andExpand
Long-Term Sea-Level Fluctuations Driven by Ocean Basin Dynamics
A mantle convection model is used to suggest that New Jersey subsided by 105 to 180 meters in the past 70 million years because of North America's westward passage over the subducted Farallon plate, which reconciles New Jersey margin–based sea-level estimates with ocean basin reconstructions.

The tectonic history of the Tasman Sea: A puzzle with 13 pieces
We present a new model for the tectonic evolution of the Tasman Sea based on dense satellite altimetry data and a new shipboard data set. We utilized a combined set of revised magnetic anomaly andExpand
Global plate motion frames: Toward a unified model
[1] Plate tectonics constitutes our primary framework for understanding how the Earth works over geological timescales. High-resolution mapping of relative plate motions based on marine geophysicalExpand
Palaeocene–Recent plate boundaries in the NE Atlantic and the formation of the Jan Mayen microcontinent
Abstract: Breakup and sea-floor spreading between Greenland and Eurasia established a series of new plate boundaries in the North Atlantic region since the Late Palaeocene. A conventional kinematicExpand
EMAG2: A 2-arc min resolution Earth Magnetic Anomaly Grid compiled from satellite, airborne, and marine magnetic measurements
[1] A global Earth Magnetic Anomaly Grid (EMAG2) has been compiled from satellite, ship, and airborne magnetic measurements. EMAG2 is a significant update of our previous candidate grid for the WorldExpand
Breakup and early seafloor spreading between India and Antarctica
SUMMARY We present a tectonic interpretation of the breakup and early seafloor spreading between India and Antarctica based on improved coverage of potential field and seismic data off the eastExpand
The African Plate: A history of oceanic crust accretion and subduction since the Jurassic
We present a model for the Jurassic to Present evolution of plate boundaries and oceanic crust of the African plate based on updated interpretation of magnetic, gravity and other geological andExpand
