Origin of the Caribbean Plate (2009)

Where did the Caribbean Plate come from?  Did it originate in the Pacific Ocean, as most geologists believe, or did it develop in situ, as Dr Keith James and Prof. Maria Antonieta Lorente believe? 

The debate opened with a statement of the "in situ heresy" by James and Lorente in the September issue of Geoscientist.  This was followed by a rebuttal from Cardiff University Postrgraduate, Iain Neill, in the November issue.

Subsequent contributions will be published online only (with reminders in the print issue).
