Closure of the Proterozoic Mozambique Ocean was instigated by a late Tonian plate reorganization event
Communications Earth & Environment
AbstractPlate reorganization events involve fundamental changes in lithospheric plate-motions and can influence the lithosphere-mantle system as well as both ocean and atmospheric circulation through bathymetric and topographic changes. Here, we compile published data to interpret the geological record of the Neoproterozoic Arabian-Nubian Shield and integrate this with a full-plate tectonic reconstruction. Our model reveals a plate reorganization event in the late Tonian period about 720doi:10.1038/s43247-021-00149-z fatcat:7vszcr4nkfhjbifbbufwwyrp3y
