Project IGCP-628 - the Geological Map of Gondwana - nears completion. A workshop
to review the remaining issues and discuss the path to completion was held at
the State University of Rio de Janiero (UFRJ) March 19-21.
In addition to the resident project team, the workshop was attended by Victor
Ramos from Argentina, David McCarthy from the UK, Giancarlo Scardia from Brazil
and Colin Reeves. The fit of the southernmost parts of South America against
southern Africa and Antarctica remains the most difficult issue with various
competing lines of evidence still failing to find consensus. A new project to
focus on these issues is being formulated. The picture shows Colin with some of
the project team in the Gondwana GIS laboratory at UFRJ at the end of the
meeting, with team leader Professor Renata Schmitt on the left.
