Paleogeographic Reconstructions With Sediment Isopachs
MetadataShow full item record
This atlas displays a series of reconstructions from 1 00 Ma to Present. The data displayed include coastlines and sutures (from coasts25.1995) and sediment isopachs (from isopachs.1 995). In the summer of 1994, Mobil Exploration and Producing Technical Center of Dallas, TX, gave the PLATES Project a global digital set of sediment isopachs. The data are now in PLATES format and have been assigned plate identification numbers but have not yet been assigned ages. Figure 1 (0 Ma) shows how the data have been assigned to plates. Figures 2 through 12 present reconstructions from 100 Ma to Present. The isopachs were colored according to thickness (in kilometers). For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
