Zusammenfassung

Es wird die Paläogeographie von sechs Paläogloben aufgezeigt, nämlich die Verteilung der sialischen Festlandschollen und der simischen Schollen der Tiefseeböden auf diesen Modellgloben, in Übereinstimmung mit sehr vielen Meßdaten in den Listen paläomagnetischer Richtungen und Pol-Lagen bis Ende 1963 von E.Irving. Je sechs Aufnahmen von den Modellgloben des Karbons (69%), des Perms (72%), der Trias (75%), des Jura (78%), der Kreide (84%) und des Eozäns (92%) für in Klammern angegebene Durchmesserverhältnisse, bezogen auf den heutigen Globus, zeigen diese Übereinstimmung. Für den genannten Zeitbereich von rund 300 Millionen Jahren wurden ungefähr 350 mittlere Deklinationen und Inklinationen an über die ganze Erde verstreuten Meßorten ausIrvings Listen entnommen und unmittelbar oder nach weiterer Mittelbildung zur Konstruktion von mehr als 125 Polgroßkreisen mit je zwei Polen und je zwei Äquatorpunkten verwendet. Diese Pole und Äquatorpunkte stimmen gut überein mit der gewählten Verteilung der Paläokontinente und dem gewählten Expansionsmaß der Erde.

Abstract

The palaeogeography of the expanding Earth from the Carboniferous to the Tertiary period as evidenced by palaeomagnetic data: The purpose of this article is to show that the geography on six modelglobes, e. g. the distribution of the sialic continental blocks and of the simic ocean floors on these model globes, is in agreement with most of the data given by E.Irving in his lists of palaeomagnetic directions and pole positions until the end of 1963. This is shown in thirty-six photographs of Earth model globes for the Carboniferous, Permian, Triassic, Jurassic, Cretaceous, and Eocene periods, the globes having diameters equal to 69%, 72%, 75%, 78%, 84%, and 92% respectively of the present diameter of the Earth. For the time in question about 350 mean declinations and inclinations at sites scattered over the whole Earth were taken from these lists and used in plotting about 125 great circles on the six globes, each great circle having two poles and two equatorial points. These poles and equatorial points are in complete agreement with the chosen distribution of the ancient continents and with the chosen proportions of the Earth's expansion.

Résumé

La paléographie de la terre gonflante, depuis le Carbonifère jusqu'au Tertiaire d'après des mesurages paléomagnétiques: Cet article donne la paléographie de six paléoglobes et montre que la distribution des glaçons du sial et du sima s'accordent avec un grand nombre des données dans les listes de E.Irving qui s'occupent des directions paléomagnétiques et de la situation des pôles jusqu'en 1963. Trente-six photos des globes du Carbonifère (69%), du Permien (72%), du Trias (75%), du Jurassique (78%), du Crétacé (84%) et de l'Eocène (92%) montrent cet accord. Les diamètres entre parenthèse se réfèrent au globe de nos jours. Pour cette période de 300 millions d'ans les listes d'Irving fournissaient environ 350 déclinaisons et inclinaisons, les sites se trouvant dans le monde entier. Leurs moyennes servaient à construire plus de 125 cercles à deux pôles et à deux points équatoriaux chacun. Ces pôles et points équatoriaux s'accordent bien avec la distribution choisie des paléocontinents et avec les proportions choisies de l'expansion de la terre.

Краткое

содержание На основании палеома гнитных измерений по Ирвингу, проводившихся как на континентальн ых глыбах (сиалическа я оболочка), так и на океанических глубинах (сима), было ус тановлено 6 палеопери одов. Установленные палеопериоды на земн ой поверхности имели следующие размеры: карбон 69%, перм 72%, триас 75%, юра 79%, мел 84%, эоцен 92%.
