Maps of the Callovian and Tithonian Paleogeography of the Caribbean, Atlantic, and Tethyan Realms: Facies and Environments
Caroline Wilhem

Data originator: Caroline Wilhem
doi: 10.1130/2014.DMCH017
Year: 2014
Area: Callovian and Tithonian paleogeography of the Caribbean, Atlantic, and Tethyan realms
Scale: 1:20,000,000
Resolution:

Projection: Longitude/Latitude (WGS 1984)
Parameters: The tectonic reconstructions for the Callovian and Tithonian used within the present work are derivative from the 600–0 Ma Neftex Geodynamic Earth Model (© Neftex Petroleum Consultants Ltd.), which is based on the integration of dynamic plate boundaries, plate buoyancy factor, ocean spreading rates, subduction rates, past synthetic isochrones and global geometric constraints, as well as pluridisciplinary field and laboratory geological data.
Units: kilometers
Precision:
Description: Callovian and Tithonian facies and environments were compiled and added to a plate tectonics model that constrains their arrangements.
