Available paleomagnetic data of Cretaceous redbed formations from Indochina and South China blocks are compiled and their tectonic significance is reviewed in a common reference frame of the Eurasian coeval paleopoles. The important factors that play a vital role in determining the tectonic significance of a paleomagnetic result have been taken into consideration and discussed. Review of the Cretaceous paleomagnetic data from the South China block further confirms the ...
Recent revisions to the early Paleozoic time scale have been used to recalibrate ages assigned to stratigraphically dated paleomagnetic poles of that era. In particular, a value of 545 Ma has been used for the base of the Cambrian. Selected poles have then been used to derive apparent polar.
This extensively illustrated volume
brings together for the first time the
results of research on Arabian continental
vertebrates discovered in the
United Arab Emirates, the Sultanate
of Oman, and the Republic of Yemen.
Eminent scientists from Arabia, Europe,
and the United States provide
up-to-date information on Arabian
paleontology as well as on Arabian
stratigraphical, geological, isotopic,
and paleomagnetic topics. The book
presents new fossil records· from
Arabia and Pakistan and discusses the
closing of the ancient Middle East
