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
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
Earth geography from 500 to 400 million years ago: a faunal and palaeomagnetic review
Very different palaeogeographical reconstructions have been produced by a combination of palaeomagnetic and faunal data, which are re-evaluated on a global basis for the period from 500 to 400 Ma,Expand
Continental break-up and collision in the Neoproterozoic and Palaeozoic — A tale of Baltica and Laurentia
During the Neoproterozoic and Palaeozoic the two continents of Baltica and Laurentia witnessed the break-up of one supercontinent, Rodinia, and the formation of another, but less long-lived, Pangea.Expand
A new scheme for the opening of the South Atlantic Ocean and the dissection of an Aptian salt basin
SUMMARY We present a revised model for the opening of the South Atlantic Ocean founded on a remapping of the continent–ocean boundaries and Aptian salt basins, the chronology of magmatic activity inExpand
Baltica from the late Precambrian to mid-Palaeozoic times: The gain and loss of a terrane's identity
Abstract The old terrane of Baltica occupies the mass of northern Europe eastwards to the Urals and lies mostly to the north of the Trans-European Suture Zone. The core, the East European Craton, isExpand
The making and unmaking of a supercontinent: Rodinia revisited
Abstract During the Neoproterozoic, a supercontinent commonly referred to as Rodinia, supposedly formed at ca. 1100 Ma and broke apart at around 800–700 Ma. However, continental fits (e.g., LaurentiaExpand
Siberia, the wandering northern terrane, and its changing geography through the Palaeozoic
The old terrane of Siberia occupied a very substantial area in the centre of today's political Siberia and also adjacent areas of Mongolia, eastern Kazakhstan, and northwestern China. Siberia'sExpand
Plume Generation Zones at the margins of Large Low Shear Velocity Provinces on the core–mantle boundary
Abstract Large Igneous Province (LIP) eruption sites of the past 300 My lie vertically above 1% slow shear wave velocity (Vs) contours bounding the African and Pacific Large Low Shear VelocityExpand
