What is Plate Wizard?

Plate Wizard | Robertson 2013
What is Plate Wizard?
 Deformable global plate model for the
Phanerozoic, data constrained for the
Cenozoic and Mesozoic
 Accurately reconstructs and predicts past
positions and geometries of rigid and
deformable plates
 User friendly ArcMap toolbar to accurately
reconstruct geo-referenced datasets
(lines, points, polygons) to their palaeolocations
 Models deformation at extensional plate
boundaries of the Atlantic, Southern
Australian and Western Indian Ocean to
restore extended continental crust to its
pre-rift geometry

Summary of updates for Plate Wizard 4
 Plate Wizard 4 rigid model compatibility with PaleoGIS
 Upper Palaeozoic rigid model - data constrained to the Silurian (440 Ma) - End 2013
 Update to the rigid South East Asia model in collaboration with Robert Hall (SEARG,
Royal Holloway, University of London) - End 2013

 Continued development and enhancement of the rigid and deformable plate model
incorporating work from detailed regional studies

Plate Wizard Updates within PaleoGIS by John Watson, Robertson-CGG: 2013/Third Annual PaleoGIS & PaleoClimate Users Conference

  • 1. Plate Wizard updates within the latest release of PaleoGIS John Watson 14-11-2013
  • 2. Project Rationale What is Plate Wizard? 2 Plate Wizard | Robertson 2013
  • 3. What is Plate Wizard?  Deformable global plate model for the Phanerozoic, data constrained for the Cenozoic and Mesozoic  Accurately reconstructs and predicts past positions and geometries of rigid and deformable plates  User friendly ArcMap toolbar to accurately reconstruct geo-referenced datasets (lines, points, polygons) to their palaeolocations  Models deformation at extensional plate boundaries of the Atlantic, Southern Australian and Western Indian Ocean to restore extended continental crust to its pre-rift geometry 3 Plate Wizard | Robertson 2013
  • 4. Rigid and Deformable Plate Model Plate boundary definitions Plate model rotation 4 Plate Wizard | Robertson 2013
  • 5. Plate boundary definitions – geological and geophysical data Structural datasets FAG (mGal) 5 Fieldwork Crustal thickness (m) Plate Wizard | Robertson 2013 Palaeogeographic mapping Magnetic Anomaly (nT)
  • 6. Plate model rotation – Hybrid model for Plate Wizard 4 Plate Wizard 2 and 3  Fixed Hotspot reference frame – 0 to 250 Ma Plate Wizard 3 Plate Wizard 4 (Release date: end 2013)  Fixed Hotspot reference frame – 0 to 120 Ma  Palaeo-mag reference frame – 120 to 440 Ma Plate Wizard 4 6 Plate Wizard | Robertson 2013
  • 7. Plate Wizard in Application Indian Ocean deformable model Reconstructing data with Plate Wizard Plate Wizard as a base for Palaeogeographic Mapping – Merlin+ 7 Plate Wizard | Robertson 2013

  • 10. Reconstructing data with Plate Wizard North Atlantic deformable model with Tellus structural data (in grey) and sediment isopach data (in red) reconstructed with the plate model The data are intersected with the plate polygons and rotated to a chosen time slice with the relevant plates Extensional deformation in Baffin Bay – Appended and DEFORMABLY MODELLED Vs Extensional deformation in Labrador Sea Appended and RIGIDLY MODELLED Time slice – 84 Ma Time slice – 0 Ma 10 Plate Wizard | Robertson 2013 Baffin Bay – Data appended and deformed Labrador Sea – Data not appended and deformed
  • 11. Plate Wizard as a base for Palaeogeographic Mapping MERLIN+: Detailed Global Palaeogeography Palaeo-Earth systems (climate and tides) 11 Plate Wizard | Robertson 2013
  • 12. Summary of updates for Plate Wizard 4  Plate Wizard 4 rigid model compatibility with PaleoGIS  Upper Palaeozoic rigid model - data constrained to the Silurian (440 Ma) - End 2013  Update to the rigid South East Asia model in collaboration with Robert Hall (SEARG, Royal Holloway, University of London) - End 2013  Continued development and enhancement of the rigid and deformable plate model incorporating work from detailed regional studies 12 Plate Wizard | Robertson 2013

Editor's Notes

  1. Example of a Tellus global structure data set in the Baffin Bay area at Present day - these data are intersected with the PWiz plate polygons so can be rotated to a chosen times slice/s with the relevant plate. To give you an example of how this works….You’re looking at the Baffin Bay region between Greenland and Northern Canada. Tellus structural elements and isopach data has been intersected with the global plate model in present day positions.
