Abstract

Description

This atlas presents plate reconstructions from 550 Ma to the present-day derived by the PLATES Project, Institute for Geophysics, The University of Texas at Austin. The atlas was made possible through the scientific contributions of many researchers, from UTIG and from other institutions. Their efforts are highly appreciated by the members of the PLATES research team. The atlas was created using the PaleoGIS (paleogis.com) for ArcGIS plate reconstruction software by The Rothwell Group, L.P., and the GPlates (http://www.gplates.org/) plate reconstruction software.
