Abstrakt

The hypothesized existence of a Neoproterozoic supercontinent called Rodinia is based on a series of geological and paleomagnetic observations, with details about the configuration and evolution of this supercontinent still a matter for debate. Regrettably, we found that the comment by Piper (this volume) lacks scientific objectiveness. The 'Palaeopangaea' that he promotes is, in our view, based on incorrect application of paleomagnetic data, and is not supported by geological evidence.
