Tectonic evolution of the Southern Ocean between Antarctica, South America and Africa over the past 84Ma

Abstract:

An improved method has been developed for carrying out 2-plate reconstructions, in which fracture zone locations are fitted to synthetic flowlines and magnetic anomaly picks are rotated and fitted to great circles representing other, not necessarily conjugate, anomaly isochrons. This enables the determination of finite rotation poles for regions with sparse data coverage, or where much of one or both plates has been subducted. Misfits and partial derivatives are calculated for each type o...
