Reconstructions of the Central and North Atlantic Using New Information from Satellite Altimetry (Paleoceanographic Mapping Project Progress Report No. 16-1186)
MetadataShow full item record
This series of maps illustrates the tectonic evolution of the Central and North Atlantic for anomaly times A13, A25, A34, M16, and M25 (Figures 1-11). In addition to modeling the relative motions of the five major blocks of continental lithosphere (Europe, Greenland, North America, Africa, Iberia) an attempt was made to reconstruct the tectonic evolution of more complex areas such as northwest Africa, the western Mediterranean, the Norwegian Sea, and the Caribbean.
