Continental growth during a 1.9-Ga superplume event
Kent Condie 2002 Journal of Geodynamics v34 p249-264

This paper, published in the Journal of Geodynamics, suggests that a global superplume event at 1.9 Ga was responsible for the addition of new juvenile continental crust to cratons. This growth was in the form of new arc systems which were accreted to cratons during supercontinent formation.
