Proterozoic East Gondwana: Supercontinent Assembly and by Masaru Yoshida, B. F. Windley, S. Dasgupta

By Masaru Yoshida, B. F. Windley, S. Dasgupta

This quantity as a complete specializes in past due Mesoproterozoic to early Cambrian occasions regarding Gondwanaland meeting. the nineteen papers offer a accomplished evaluation together with complicated wisdom and new facts from all serious components of east Gondwanaland. the hot wisdom of the evolution of East Gondwana which was once considered as a vital part of Mesoproterozoic super-continent Rodinia is the main topic of the amount, that's strengthened by means of highlighting this radical and new realizing of the evolution of East Gondwana. This quantity is of use as either a textual content and reference booklet for Earth technological know-how postgraduates, and of allure around the world to expert geologists with an curiosity in Rodinia and Gondwana.

780Ma, and is now fragmented by the separation of western North America and eastern Australia. However, Wingate et al (1998) found that the Gairdiner Dyke Swarm in Australia has a U-Th-Pb baddeleyite-zircon age of 827±6Ma, c. 40Ma too early. Finally, the opening of the lapetus Ocean was marked by the emplacement of the 616 Ma Egersund Dyke Swarm in S W Norway (Bingen et al 1998), and of the 700km long, plume-generated, radiating 590Ma Grenville Dyke Swarm in Canada (Seymour &Kumarapelil995). Ophiolites and the ocean floor Proterozoic ophiolites are not common, but neither are ophiolites common in the Himalayas (collisional orogen) or Japan (accretionary orogen).
