Summary
Abstract: The PALEOMAP project produces paleogreographic maps illustrating the
Earth's plate tectonic, paleogeographic, climatic, oceanographic and
biogeographic development from the Precambrian to the Modern World
and beyond.

A series of digital data sets has been produced consisting of plate
tectonic data, climatically sensitive lithofacies, and biogeographic
data. Software has been devloped to plot ... View entire text
