PaleoMap Synthesis Meeting

July 27, 2011

Funded by NSF, the purpose of the workshop was to discuss the creation of a dynamic internet resource that integrates paleogeographic mapping with online earth science databases. Such a comprehensive description of the plate tectonic, paleogeographic, paleoclimatic, and paleobiological development of the Earth is a fundamental requirement of any attempt to understand the evolution of earth systems and would be widely used by earth science educators at all levels and earth science researchers of nearly every persuasion.
