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, Colorado Plateau, SW North America, and Mesozoic terrane accretion. Older Mediterranean, Central and Southern Asia views are also available. Reconstructions by geologist Ron Blakey (formerly Northern Arizona University) and Colorado Plateau Geosystems, Inc.
