Building and refining geometrically correct animations of continental movements has given new insight into the geological and tectonic evolution of the southern continents that once formed Gondwana..

The work of refining the model of Gondwana break-up and dispersion is on-going. New, improved data for the magnetic isochrons in the Indian Ocean greatly reduce the level of uncertainty in the paleo-positions of Antarctica and Madagascar against Africa. This, in turn, reduces the uncertainty in the position of India once it was able to move independently of either Antarctica or Madagascar. The most recent model is used in the new animation on the Gondwana page of this website.
