This memoir represents the proceedings of the Pangea Conference, an international symposium held in Calgary in August of 1993. The sixty-four papers in the Memoir (which encompasses nearly 1,000 pages) have been divided into seven sections: Global, Regional Paleogeography and Tectonics, Paleoclimates, Resources, Sedimentation, Boundaries and Biostratigraphy. These sections reflect the themes of the working groups of Project Pangea. The papers are a good representation of the main topics of the conference and they illustrate the myriad of geographic, climactic and tectonic changes which characterized Pangea's complex evolution.

This Memoir represents the proceedings of the Pangea Conference, an international symposium held in Calgary, Canada, August 15-19, 1993. ... The technical sessions covered a broad range of topics, including global geology, supercontinents, paleogeographic reconstructions, sequence stratigraphy, clastic, carbonate and evaporite sedimentology, collision and break-up tectonics, paleoclimates, biostratigraphy, boundaries and extinctions, and petroleum, coal and phosphate resources. Taken together these varied presentations painted a vivid picture of the earth as it evolved from Carboniferous through to the Jurassic. During this 200 m.y. span Pangea was assembled through major continental collisions and then was progressively torn asunder by rifting and seafloor spreading. Global change was the watchword during the birth, growth and destruction of the last supercontinent.
