The configuration of the Pangea supercontinent has been a topic of intense debate for almost half a century, a controversy that stems from discrepancies between the geology-based Pangea A and the paleomagneticallybased Pangea B. Recent paleomagnetic compilations aimed at resolving this controversy have identified the poor quality of paleomagnetic data from Gondwana for late Permian times as a major obstacle. Specifically, the vast majority of Gondwanan poles come from sedimentary rocks that are… CONTINUE READING
