Paleomap Project Climate History

Scotese Christopher, PALEOMAP Project

The goal of the Climate History segment of the Paleomap Project is to illustrate climate change during the past 1100 million years. An array of colorful paleoclimatic maps for important time periods is provided. Each map displays reconstructed positions of modern continental coastlines, dominant regional climates and the datapoints used in map construction. The maps are arranged in order of ascending age and supply a short discussion of important concepts and geologic events.
