Neoproterozoic origin..Although the way in which the Iapetus Ocean evolved and disappeared in the Paleozoic is reasonably well understood, the geodynamics of its origin are less clear. In the Late Neoproterozoic (around 800 million years ago) Baltica, Laurentia, and the cratons that would later become Gondwana together formed the supercontinent RODIN IA. The exact configuration in which the continents were joined is not clear though. It is however clear that intracratonic basins had developed in the northern parts of this supercontinent during the Cryogenian period (850-630 million years ago), a first sign of continental break up (other parts of RODIN IA probably rifted off even earlier)... can we possibly fight it, Sergeant-Major?
