The Global Paleogeographical Reconstruction of the Triassic and the Paleoposiont of India

Giancarlo Scalera
Year: 1999
Following the production of a series of three paleogeographical reconstructions for the Paleocene, Cretaceous and Jurassic, a further reconstruction has been made here for the Triassic period, with the assistance of paleomagnetic data. The data provided by mutual fragment positions and paleomagnetic vectors, are best reconciled if the data is treated in an expanding Earth framework, and gives credence to the view that this represents the real evolution of the Earth. In particular a new solution of the case of Indian paleoposition is given which could constitute the key to the reinterpretation of the Eurasia paleogeography throughout geological time.
