Summary
"Pairs of paleoclimate and paleolatitude world maps are presented for each phanerozoic system with exception of the quaternary. Continental and oceans are shown in their present cofiguration on a suitable projection with a minimum of distortion. The main "conventional" paleoclimatic indicators: carbonate deposits and reefs, evaporite deposits and red beds, coral and tillites, and ancient wind directions are briefly reviewed and their distribution within the paleolatitude grid is examined. The increasing role of the paleoclimatic tool is emphasized. Finally there is a short discussion of the Phanerozoic crustal movement history which leads to the view that each major shift of the outer shell of the earth resulted in relative movements of individual plates and mountain building, closing of old oceans and the formation of new ones."
