The following web sites may be of interest to anyone interested in palaeogeogeography. I'll add more links soon.
|The Paleogeographic Atlas Project
Professors Alfred M. Ziegler & David B. Rowley
The University of Chicago
|With almost 30 years of experience this is where the science of palaeogeography began. Although much of the emphasis over the last 10 years has been towards phytogeography the methodologies derived by the project still need to be considered by anyone seriously interested in reconstructing past geography.|
Check out the following papers in particular:
Ziegler, A. M., D. B. Rowley, et al. (1985). "Paleogeographic interpretation: with an example from the Mid-Cretaceous." Annual Review of Earth and Planetary Sciences 13: 385-425.
Ziegler, A. M. and D. B. Rowley (1998). The vanishing record of epeiric seas, with emphasis on the Late Cretaceous 'Hudson Seaway'. Tectonic boundary conditions for climate reconstructions. T. J. Crowley and K. C. Burke. Oxford: 147-165.

Professor Christopher R.Scotese
The University of Texas, Arlington
|Probably the most well known and widely used work in Industry and Academia, the Paleomap group began it's life back in Chicago when Chris was a post-doc with Fred Ziegler. Created in collaboration with Malcolm Ross the group's rotation software, PALEOGIS, is still the standard to compare with.|
