Abstract:
[From Global Earth History home page by Ron Blakey, "http://jan.ucc.nau.edu/~rcb7/globaltext.html"] This presentation uses a series of paleogeographic and plate-tectonic reconstructions to show the broad patterns of Phanerozoic Earth history. Organization is by region and in geologic order from oldest to youngest for each region. The Time Slice link shows all maps and globes of all regions by geologic time (the Periods). Options available from the menu are: - Paleogeographic globes, "http://jan.ucc.nau.edu/~rcb7/paleogeographic.html"; - Tectonics, Sedimentation, Paleogeography of North Atlantic Region, "http://jan.ucc.nau.edu/~rcb7/nat.html"; - Tectonics and Paleogeography of Mediterranean Region, "http://jan.ucc.nau.edu/~rcb7/paleogeographic_alps.html"; - Tectonics and Paleogeography of Central and Southern Asia, "http://jan.ucc.nau.edu/~rcb7/paleogeographic_asia.html"; and - Time Slice, "http://jan.ucc.nau.edu/~rcb7/global_history.html", all maps and globes of all regions by geologic time, and a brief narrative for each time interval.
