Royal Holloway Research Uses PaleoGIS

Reconstruction of India, Australia and Antarctica's breakup from Gondwana

Reconstruction of India, Australia and Antarctica’s Breakup from Gondwana

We are pleased to share with you a reconstruction animation created using PaleoGIS by Dr. Lloyd White of Royal Holloway, University of London’s Department of Earth Sciences (Royal Holloway). Dr. White included this reconstruction in his presentation at the The Roberts Conference: Passive Margins 2016 (Roberts Conference), held at Royal Holloway April 6–8. The conference explores the role of mechanisms such as “depth-dependant and differential stretching through the lithosphere, polyphase deformation, magmatic activity, and the interplay between structure and sedimentation in rift and passive margin development.” (See Event Details at GlobalEventsList.elselvier.com)

Dr. White’s presentation focused on the tectonic evolution of Gondwana and geological record of breakup along the Indian, Australian and Antarctic passive margins.

The plate model illustrated in the reconstruction was developed by Dr. White and follows work presented in White et al., (2013) “A reassessment of paleogeographic reconstructions of eastern Gondwana: Bringing geology back into the equation” published in Gondwana Research. The model was also presented by Dr. White at this year’s Roberts Conference at Royal Holloway.

PaleoGIS Now Supports FROGTECH Plate Model

FROGTECH Joins Family of PaleoGIS Supported Plate Models
PaleoGIS software application or app, for ESRI ArcGIS, now supports FROGTECH plate model, FROGNet

We are pleased to announce that FROGTECH has joined The Rothwell Group’s family of plate model vendor partners. The company’s rigid plate model, FROGNet, is now fully supported by PaleoGIS. FROGTECH will demonstrate and review the geological development of the plate model at the 2014 PaleoGIS & PaleoClimate User Conference on November 5 in Houston, Texas.

FROGTECH is a world leader in geophysical processing, structural and tectonic interpretations, basin analysis and resource-related geological science. The FROGNet Rigid Plate Reconstruction Model offers the insight into over 15 years of global mapping of tectonostratigraphic provinces and basement terranes.

The partnership with FROGTECH is directly in line with Rothwell’s strategy of being the industry standard plate tectonics reconstruction modeling platform. PaleoGIS supports the leading commercial and academic plate models available on the market today. Many of these partners rely on PaleoGIS to develop their proprietary content.

The Rothwell Group is a software engineering and process optimization company. For the petrochemical and mineral industries, the company has developed PaleoGIS, plate tectonics reconstruction software, and PaleoClimate, quick-cycle climate modeling software. These are screening tools that enable geologists and GIS professionals to predict high potential analogues with lower risk and cost, as well as understand basin and play formation with greater accuracy. The products are installed at the majority of the largest and fastest growing global oil and gas and mineral exploration companies.
