The geological exploration of the sub-Antarctic island of South Georgia: a review and bibliography, 1871-2015

The earliest geological explorations of South Georgia in the late 19th and early 20th centuries were generally piecemeal and opportunistic, often being undertaken by expeditions with a primary focus

Mathematical modelling reveals potential acceleration of the supercontinent cycle

The supercontinent cycle has been the focus of researchers for many years, but the parameters of its cyclicity remain a central debate; thus, prediction of the occurrence of the next supercontinent

Resolution of the Faint Young Sun Paradox via the Expanding Earth and Radiation Balance Equilibrium Hypothesis

We present a plausible solution to the now forty seven year old paleoclimatology riddle 1 of the so-called Faint Young Sun Paradox via the combined hypothesis of the conservation of the 2 state of

A historical account of how continental drift and plate tectonics provided the framework for our current understanding of palaeogeography

Abstract Palaeogeography is the cartographic representation of the past distribution of geographic features such as deep oceans, shallow seas, lowlands, rivers, lakes and mountain belts on

Mesozoic marine reptile palaeobiogeography in response to drifting plates

Present true polar wander in the frame of the Geotectonic Reference System

The Mesozoic-Cenozoic evolution of the Earth’s lithosphere reveals a fundamental hemispherical symmetry inherent in global tectonics. The symmetry is documented by the concurrent regular growth of

Die Entstehung der Kontinente und Ozeane

THE fourth edition of Wegener's “Entstehung der Kontinente und Ozeane” is greatly enlarged and improved. For example, of the previous illustrations 12 are omitted, but the total number is increased

Understanding the Earth: the contribution of Marie Tharp

Abstract Marie Tharp worked all her life as a geoscientist, and for the most part for the recognition and benefit of her male colleagues. She was employed to assist researchers at Columbia

Plate tectonic modelling: review and perspectives

Abstract Since the 1970s, numerous global plate tectonic models have been proposed to reconstruct the Earth's evolution through deep time. The reconstructions have proven immensely useful for the

Do Norwegian Textbooks for Compulsory Education Promote Geological System Thinking

Geology is one of many topics in the Norwegian curricula for Natural Science and Geography in compulsory education. System thinking is a strategy to promote conceptual development. The purpose of
