Deep Time Maps™ provides paleogeographic maps of the ancient world. The maps show the varied landscapes of the ancient Earth through hundreds of millions of years of geologic time including distribution of ancient shallow seas, deep ocean basins, mountain ranges, coastal plains, and continental interiors. Tectonic features shown include subduction zones, island arcs, mid-ocean ridges and accreting terranes. Latest geologic data from the scientific literature are used to compile and construct the ancient Earth.

Walk into the time of the Western Interior Seaway 136 Million years ago to 60 million years ago. This animation traces the history of North America’s Western Interior Cretaceous Seaway from its inception in northwest Canada through its greatest extent from Alaska to the Gulf of Mexico during the Turonian to Campanian (subdivisions of Cretaceous time, 94 – 77 Ma), to its demise in the Maastrichtian (Ca. 67 Ma).
