Regional Paleogeographic Views of Earth History
This site presents a series of paleogeographic and plate-tectonic reconstructions that illustrate the broad patterns of the Earth's structural history. Reconstructions of North America, the Mediterranean, Central and Southern Asia, and global views are organized by both geographic region and time period and may be viewed by either category. There is also a Time Slice feature which gives a brief summary of the given time period and links to each of the three regional maps of that period.
