Reconstructing plate-motion changes in the presence of finite-rotations noise

Iaffaldano, Giampiero; Bodin, T.; Sambridge, Malcolm


Understanding lithospheric plate motions is of paramount importance to geodynamicists. Much effort is going into kinematic reconstructions featuring progressively finer temporal resolution. However, the challenge of precisely identifying ocean-floor magnetic lineations, and uncertainties in geomagnetic reversal timescales result in substantial finite-rotations noise. Unless some type of temporal smoothing is applied, the scenario arising at the native temporal resolution is puzzling, as plate...[Show more]
