Abstract

"... The results of the published palaeomagnetic analyses for North America, Africa and Australia strongly suggest that the cratons which comprise the individual continents retained their relationships for much of Precambrian time and that the younger, intervening mobile belts and major sutures did not result from convergence of previously widely separated microcontinents| their origin is ensialic. The implication is that tectonic styles have changed through geological time". (Extrait du texte des AA.).
