The timing of events leading to the earliest connection between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans at Drake Passage is controversial but important, because gateway opening probably had a profound effect on global circulation and climate. A rigorous new analysis of marine geophysical data demonstrates a major change in the motion of the South American and Antarctic plates at about 50 Ma, from N–S to WNW–ESE, accompanied by an eightfold increase in separation rate. This would have led to crustal… CONTINUE READING
