Plate Tectonic Animations

Chris Scotese, University of Texas, Arlington


This site contains a variety of plate tectonic animations, paleogeographic reconstructions, and paleoclimate animations. Each animation is viewable from the web page, and has accompanying text that explains the events portrayed. Examples include the formation of the ocean basins, the assembly and breakup of Pangaea, and the collision of India and Asia.
