Climatically-related sedimentary facies and faunal distributions have been combined with palaeomagnetic data to make provisional reconstructions of the early Cambrian world. Laurentia, Baltica and Siberia appear to have formed a continental group which rifted apart from each other prior to 600 Ma. The consolidation of much of Gondwana probably occurred (in the Pan-African orogeny) well before the Cambrian, though the assembly of several east Asian terranes is still speculative. The… Expand
