High-resolution Neogene and Quaternary estimates of Nubia-Eurasia-North America Plate motion

DeMets, Dennis Charles; Iaffaldano, Giampiero; Merkouriev, S.

Description

Reconstructions of the history of convergence between the Nubia and Eurasia plates constitute an important part of a broader framework for understanding deformation in the Mediterranean region and the closing of the Mediterranean Basin. Herein, we combine high-resolution reconstructions of Eurasia-North America and Nubia-North America Plate motions to determine rotations that describe Nubia-Eurasia Plate motion at ~1 Myr intervals for the past 20 Myr. We apply trans-dimensional hierarchical...[Show more]
