Evolución del clima a través de la historia de la tierra
In a natural way, the atmosphere –and therefore the climate- evolved together with the continent, the ocean, the interior Earth an all the other planetary components. This co-evolution was often via
SCICEX Investigations of the Arctic Ocean System
Abstract In 1993 the United States Navy and the marine research community embarked on an ambitious program to study the Arctic Ocean using nuclear-powered submarines. The program, termed SC ience IC
Project Atlantis - An Exercise in the Application of Earth Science to a Critical Examination of a Pseudoscience Hypothesis
I ask my first-year physical geology students to write an essay examining the Crustal Displacement hypothesis (Flem-ath and Flem-ath, 1995), a hypothesis that is inconsistent with the accepted

Mantle plume and rift-related volcanism during the evolution of the Rio Grande Rise
The Rio Grande Rise in the western South Atlantic Ocean has been interpreted as either an oceanic plateau related to the Tristan-Gough mantle plume, or a fragment of detached continental crust. Here
Mantle geodynamics and source domain of the East Vietnam Sea opening- induced volcanism in Vietnam and neighboring regions
The spreading of the East Vietnam Sea (EVS, also known as Bien Dong, or the South China Sea), leading to the occurrence of syn-spreading (33-16 Ma) and post-spreading (< 16 to present) volcanism.
Tectonic evolution and geodynamics of the Neo-Tethys Ocean
The Neo-Tethys Ocean was an eastward-gaping triangular oceanic embayment between Laurasia to the north and Gondwana to the south. The Neo-Tethys Ocean was initiated from the Early Permian with
Constraining the Range and Variation of Lithospheric Net Rotation Using Geodynamic Modeling
Lithospheric net rotation (LNR) is the movement of the lithosphere as a solid body with respect to the mantle. Separating the signal of LNR from plate tectonic motion is therefore an important factor
Origin, Accretion, and Reworking of Continents
The continental crust is unique to the Earth in the solar system, and controversies remain regarding its origin, accretion and reworking of continents. The plate tectonics theory has been
The supercontinent cycle
Supercontinents signify self-organization in plate tectonics. Over the past ~2 billion years, three major supercontinents have been identified, with increasing age: Pangaea, Rodinia and Columbia. In


Study of shear-velocity distribution in the upper mantle by mantle Rayleigh waves
Comparison of Rayleigh-wave dispersion computations on 11 models of shear-velocity structure of the continental and oceanic crust-mantle systems permits a detailed explanation of observed mantle
Theory of continental drift : a symposium on the origin and movement of land masses both in inter-continental and intra-continental, as proposed by Alfred Wegener
This publication was written in 1926 during an era of heated discussions on continental drift based on an AAPG Symposium of the same topic. The problem of continental drift raised considerable and
Landslide Patterns on Oceanic Volcanoes and Atolls
Experience during the Pacific war focused the attention of many geologists on the morphology of coral re fs. It appears that concave "bights" in the normally convex outlines of both oceanic volcanoes
