This publication explains the use and methods of paleomagnetism to map the move of significant parts of the Earth's floor via time. Written for a geological viewers, the preliminary chapters give you the easy necessities for knowing the worth and importance of paleomagnetic effects. The later chapters are targeted in bringing jointly the tremendous quantities of accessible paleomagnetic information and analyses. this data is built-in with the paleogeography and tectonic hobbies of the blocks and put in context with present tectonic hypotheses. a substantial percentage of the current continents are thought of - that's the land components which are now chanced on round the Atlantic and Indian Oceans and in Asia. additionally provided is an intensive catalogue of paleomagnetic effects for all significant continents and the displaced components that they include.
