Jurassic to Recent tectonic evolution of North America: A preliminary model using GPlates software
GeoFile 2014-11 uses the paleo-GIS program GPlates, to develop a paleogeographic model for much of the North American Cordillera between 200 Ma and the present. It is the preliminary release of ongoing work to produce a model that best incorporates land geology, paleomagnetic data, and geometric constraints on volcanic arc geometry from detailed mantle tomography.
