        Proterozoic Tectonic Evolution of the Grenville Orogen in North America, Issue Richard P. Tollo Geological Society of America, Jan 1, - Science - pages.   The book focuses on geological history as the critical factor in determining the present biodiversity and landscapes of Amazonia. The different driving mechanisms for landscape evolution are explored by reviewing the history of the Amazonian Craton, the associated sedimentary basins, and the role of mountain uplift and climate change.

The Mesozoic-Cenozoic tectonic evolution of the Circum-Arctic region is based on constraints imposed by (1) relative motion histories of the three major plates (North America, Greenland, and Eurasia) and a number of smaller pieces, and (2) distribution and age of sutures, accretionary prisms, volcanic arcs, fold-thrust belts, stretched.

The geological history of Earth follows the major events in Earth's past based on the geological time scale, a system of chronological measurement based on the study of the planet's rock layers (stratigraphy).Earth formed about billion years ago by accretion from the solar nebula, a disk-shaped mass of dust and gas left over from the formation of the Sun, which also created the rest of.

North America - North America - Tectonic evolution: North America is an ancient continent in several respects. It contains some of the oldest rocks on the Earth, its interior has been stable for the longest period of time, and it was the first continent to achieve approximately its present size and shape.

Although its known geologic history spans almost 4 billion years, two ages stand out as. At this time, North America was bisected by a shallow Central Cretaceous Seaway.

The Proterozoic bedrocks of much of the continent today are hidden by thick limestones accumulated during this interval. Elsewhere in the world, Africa and India rifted away from Gondwana. Still, North America remained firmly attached to Laurasia in the east and west.
