Add a review


This volume as a whole focuses on Late Mesoproterozoic to early Cambrian events related to Gondwanaland assembly. The 19 papers provide a comprehensive review including advanced knowledge and new data from all critical areas of east Gondwanaland. The recent knowledge of the evolution of East Gondwana which was regarded as an integral part of Mesoproterozoic super-continent Rodinia is the major theme of the volume, which is reinforced by highlighting this radical and new understanding of the evolution of East Gondwana. This volume is of use as both a text and reference book for Earth Science postgraduates, and of appeal worldwide to professional geologists with an interest in Rodinia and Gondwana.
