INTRODUCTION One of the major problems in geology is the role of plate
tectonics in the Precambrian. Although many methods of identifying plate
boundaries and reconstructing plate motions are available for the last 200 m.y. (
Chapter 8), few are applicable to older crustal provinces. Furthermore, in most
Precambrian terranes deformation and metamorphism commonly obliterate
original rock characteristics and partially or completely reset isotopic dating
systems and magnetization ...

... his parents' passion for exploration and the outdoors. At age seventeen, Wilson
became a field assistant to mountaineer Noel Odell and in working for him,
discovered the world of geology. Wilson went on to earn degrees in geology and
physics from the University of Toronto, Cambridge University in England, and
Princeton. At Princeton Wilson met Harry Hess, Maurice Ewing, and other
scientists who would also play a major role in the development of the theory of
plate tectonics.
