Description - The Great Rift Valleys of Pangea in Eastern North America by Peter M. LeTourneau

The breakup of the Pangean supercontinent in the Triassic-Jurassic age left great rift basins containing a record of the physical and biological conditions which precipitated a major extinction event at the time. These basins collectively form a rift province called the Central Atlantic Margin (CAM), which spans more than 45 degrees of palaeolatitude and records over 35 million years of Earth history. Leading experts LeTourneau and Olsen present a detailed review of the rift province's geology, palaeobiology, and geophysics. This data is very important for investigators interested in climate and biotic change and important to topics as diverse as extensional tectonics, astronomical forcing of climate, the evolution of early mammals, and the appearance and diversification of dinosaurs. Volume one covers structural geology, tectonics and colcanisms of CAM.
