North American Precambrian Craton Part A

1,041 views

Published on

Slide show presentation of Precambrian tectonic history of the North American craton up to the end of the Cambrian Period. Slide show the reconstruction of cratonic blocks being assembled to produce the continent, accompanied by audio text and soundtrack music. Part A is the first part of a four part series to include the Phanerozoic tectonic hisotyr (Part B), British Columbia (Part C), and Alaskan (Part D) tectonics.
