New book: Ancient Supercontinents and the Paleogeography of Earth

Published: 21 October 2021

Sten-Åke Elming, professor of exploration geophysics at Luleå University of Technology, participates as author and editor in a recently published book on ancient supercontinents and the paleogeography of the earth.

The first part of the book comprises an updated overview of the Precambrian supercontinents and their cyclicity and serves as a bridge to the subsequent chapters. It also offers a short overview of the geological history of the Earth and tectonic processes taking place before the onset of modern-type plate tectonics.

Ancient Supercontinents and the Paleogeography of Earth

Since paleomagnetism is the only quantitative tool to reconstruct global paleogeographies, a few examples are shown on how it works in practice in supercontinent research.
