Topographic asymmetry of the South Atlantic from global models of mantle flow and lithospheric stretching

  title={Topographic asymmetry of the South Atlantic from global models of mantle flow and lithospheric stretching},
  • Published 2013
The methodology for building deforming regions into global plate reconstructions builds on the continuously closing plates framework described by Gurnis et al. (2012). Plates are defined within the open-source software GPlates (Boyden et al., 2011) by building polygons from a series of lines defining plate boundaries. The lines can move independently, so that the geometry of plate polygons continually change as a function of reconstruction time. Within this original framework, plate velocities… CONTINUE READING
