  • Abstract The first U-Pb and Hf-Lu isotopic data of detrital zircons from Devonian strata of the Malvinas (Falkland) Islands allow re-evaluation of different hypotheses regarding their location before the breakup of Gondwana. Of the various published hypotheses there are only two that have gained support. Adie's hypothesis involves a rotation of 180 degrees of the islands and a large displacement of Patagonia, independently of South America, whereas Borrello's hypothesis assumes a relative fixed… CONTINUE READING
