Figure 5. Theoretical Mesozoic paleolatitude histories of ODP Sites 801 and BON-8A based on the combined polar wander paths for the Pacific plate of Sager and Pringle (1988) for 60-100 Ma and Larson and Sager (1992) for 100-155 Ma. Great circle distances are measured at 5-Ma intervals on the combined polar wander path to the present-day site locations and then converted to paleolatitudes to construct these histories. The paleolatitudes of 155-165 Ma for ODP Site 801 are based on measured remanent inclinations in Jurassic core samples from that site.
