|The three central chapters of this work constitute an explanatory comment of the jointed Central North Atlantic reconstruction maps. In the first chapter, the model is situated relatively to other works devoted to the evolution of the Atlantic ocean, the data used and the methods followed are exposed. In th fifth chapter, we discuss some of the several implications of the model. The main characteristic of this approach is that it aims to integrate from the beginningthe major plate system constituted by: the North American, Eurasian and African plates. For each geological period, results of the detailed regional studies are referred to the evolution of the whole system and evaluated according to it. [NOT CONTROLLED OCR]
