A geologic time scale 2004 by F. M Gradstein( Book )

28 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 977 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The latest research methods, including isotope geochronology, geomathematics & orbital turning, have been utilised to produce this new stratigraphic framework for the Precambrian & Phanerozoic periods
Atlas of Mesozoic and Cenozoic coastlines by A. Gilbert Smith( )

6 editions published between 1994 and 2004 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Phanerozoic paleocontinental world maps by A. Gilbert Smith( )

7 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1980, this book shows the positions of the major continental areas during the past 560 million years as four series of computer-drawn maps. The maps have been drawn for the present day, 10 and 20 million years ago, then at 20-million-year intervals back to 240 million years, and finally at 40-million-year intervals to 560 million years ago. All the maps are based on quantitative geophysical or topographic information: paleomagnetic pole positions, ocean floor magnetic anomalies, and best fits of the continental margins. Cylindrical equidistant and Lambert equal-area polar projections are used, with a thirty-degree latitude-longitude grid. Many interesting problems in the Earth Sciences are global. These maps provide a framework on which a wide variety of data may be plotted. Problems in fields as widely separated as palenontology, stratigraphy, geochemistry and tectonics may usefully be displayed on these maps
Mesozoic and Cenozoic paleocontinental maps by A. Gilbert Smith( )

The Phanerozic time-scale; a symposium dedicated to Professor Arthur Holmes by W. B Harland( Book )

Mesozoic and cenozoic paleocontinental maps by A. Gilbert Smith( Book )

15 editions published between 1973 and 1979 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1977, this book shows the positions of the major continental areas during the past 220 million years as four series of computer-drawn maps. The maps have been drawn for the present day, 10 and 20 million years ago, then at 20-million-year intervals back to 220 million years. All the maps are based on quantitative geophysical or topographic information: paleomagnetic pole positions, ocean floor magnetic anomalies, and best fits of the continental margins. Mercator, north polar and south polar sterographic, and Lambert equal-area maps of each selected time interval are provided. Many interesting problems in the Earth Sciences are global; they need to be seen in a proper global setting. The maps provide such a framework on which a very wide range of geological information may be plotted. Problems in fields as widely separated as paleontology, stratigraphy, geochemistry and tectonics may usefully be displayed on these maps
