The Tectonic Evolution of Gondwana (convened by IGCP 628)
This symposium will focus on the presentation and discussion of the new Gondwana Geological Map, scale 1:5M. After 3 years of geological compilation, the map integrates the geological data of the major Gondwana fragments and some minor blocks attached to this paleocontinent in the Triassic. The main topics to be addressed are: The consensus configuration of the Gondwana fragments at the end of the Triassic and the beginning of the Jurassic; The position of smaller blocks within the Gondwana configuration (e.g. Falklands, Afghanistan, Avalonia); The removal of younger geological units (Post-Jurassic) and the paleogeological map of these regions; The Gondwana heritage of the African continent; The deliveries and the legacy of the IGCP-628 and the integration with other IGCP related projects.
