Plate tectonic evolution from 1 Billion years ago to the present

Take a look at this video the Earth‘s plate tectonic evolution from 1 billion years ago to the present.



“We have created the first continuous plate model with evolving plate boundaries spanning 1 Ga to the present-day, that includes a revised and improved model for the Neoproterozoic–Cambrian (1000–520 Ma) that connects with models of the Phanerozoic, thereby opening up pre-Gondwana times for quantitative analysis and further regional refinements. In this contribution, we first summarise methodological approaches to full-plate modelling and review the existing full-plate models in order to select appropriate models that produce a single continuous model.”
