Geosphere, October 2015, v. 11, p. 1530-1564, doi:10.1130/GES01165.1, Animation 1 - Arctic plate model from 180 Ma to Present, shown holding North America fixed, created by J. Toro in GPlates by modifying the global model of Seton et al. (2012). The yellow star tracks the location of the Iceland hotspot. Yellow lines are the mid-ocean ridges relevant to the Arctic and some shelf edges. Magnetic anomalies and subduction zones are shown as lines of the color of the plate to which they are attached in the model. Color key: Dark Blue—Kamchatka, Rocky Mountains, Canadian Arctic Islands; Dark Green—Laurentia, Central Ellesmere, South Anyui zone; Dark Grey—Eurasia, Yukon-Tanana, Chukchi Cap; Light Blue—Lower Yukon, Svalbard, Western Europe, Sakhalin; Light Green—Brooks Range; Orange—Prikolyma, North Slope, Seward Peninsula, Baffin Island, Peninsular terrane, Alexander terrane; Pink—Greenland, Lomonosov Ridge, Western Ellesmere, Northwind Ridge; Red—Kolyma-Omolon terrane, Kokukuk arc; Yellow—Chukotka, Eastern Ellesmere. Some of the light grey area are continental shelves.
