Indo-Australian stratigraphy and the configuration and dispersal of Gondwanaland

Abstract

India and Australia are reassembled in Gondwanaland from stratigraphic evidence with their northern margins facing Tethys and their southern margins within the interior. A similar reconstruction of all Gondwanaland entails insignificant reorientation of constituent continents, and is consistent with a pattern of continental dispersal indicated by the gross geology of the Indian Ocean.
