Phanerozoic Equal-Area World Maps

Abstract

Nine pairs of Lambert equal-area maps of the world are presented. Six pairs show the probable distributions of major continents and oceans at the present day and during the "Tertiary" (Eocene), "Cretaceous," "Jurassic," "Triassic," and "Permian" periods. The remaining three pairs of maps show the probable latitudinal distributions of major continental and oceanic regions during the "Lower Carboniferous (Mississippian)," "Lower Devonian," and "Cambrian/Lower Ordovician" periods. All maps are centered on the equator or inferred paleoequator. Each pair shows two views of the world from diametrically opposite equatorial points. The maps are essentially the same reassemblies as those drawn as Mercator and polar stereographic projections.
