Revised World maps and introduction
Abstract We review the highlights of the 1988 symposium on Palaeozoic Biogeography and Palaeogeography, and present a revised set of 20 Palaeozoic base maps that incorporate much of the new dataExpand
Late Cretaceous to Miocene sea‐level estimates from the New Jersey and Delaware coastal plain coreholes: an error analysis
Sea level has been estimated for the last 108 million years through backstripping of corehole data from the New Jersey and Delaware Coastal Plains. Inherent errors due to thismethod of calculatingExpand

  • 1 November 2004
Forty‐six miniature plate tectonic reconstructions are presented that can be assembled into a “flipbook” that illustrates the movement of the continents since the Late Precambrian, 750 m.yr. ago. SixExpand
The longest voyage: Tectonic, magmatic, and paleoclimatic evolution of the Indian plate during its northward flight from Gondwana to Asia
Abstract The tectonic evolution of the Indian plate, which started in Late Jurassic about 167 million years ago (~ 167 Ma) with the breakup of Gondwana, presents an exceptional and intricate caseExpand
A hierarchical tectonic model of the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean region
Abstract A quantitative computer graphic methodology (hierarchical tectonic analysis) has been used to model the tectonic evolution of the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean region. This method employs aExpand
Plate tectonic reconstructions of the Cretaceous and Cenozoic ocean basins
Abstract In this paper we present nine reconstructions for the Mesozoic and Cenozoic, based on previously published sea-floor spreading isochrons ∗ . The purpose of this study was 1. (1) to determineExpand
Phanerozoic Paleoclimate: An Atlas of Lithologic Indicators of Climate
This publication combines the interpretations of two major sets of data. One is the geophysical data that is used to interpret the position of the tectonic plates through geologic time. The other isExpand
Phanerozoic Paleogeographic and Paleoclimatic Modeling Maps
Abstract The paleoclimatic maps were generated by the INTERGRAPH using PALEOCLIMATE and PALEOMAP software. The outlines of paleogeography contained in the recently generated PhanerozoicExpand
Gondwanan palaeogeography and pal˦oclimatology
Abstract Lithological indicators of climate, such as coals, evaporites, bauxites, and tillites,can be used to map the past position of the major climatic zones (Humid Tropics, Dry Subtropics, WarmExpand
Apparent polar wander paths for the major continents (200 Ma to the present day): a palaeomagnetic reference frame for global plate tectonic reconstructions
SUMMARY Synthetic apparent polar wander (APW) paths for North America, South America, Eurasia, India, Central Africa, Australia and Antarctica for the last 200 Myr are proposed. Computation of theseExpand
