[MIS08-P03] Pangea and East Asia: With or Without you

*Daniel Pastor-Galán1 (1.Center for North East Asian Studies, Tohoku University)

Keywords:Pangea, East Asian Tectonics, Supercontinents

Pangea, the latest supercontinent, amalgamated during the Paleozoic after the colisions of Gondwana, Laurentia, Baltica and several microplates. Meanwhile an intense tectonic activity accoumpaned a series of cratons and microplates that were located in the interface between the Panthalassa and Tethyan oceans as well as along the acretionary orogens of Altaids and Terra Australis. Most of research has forgotten the role of all these areas into the supercontinent tenure and evolution, however understanding them is crucial to our understanding of the supercontinent cycle and Pangean tectonics.
