- ‘However, and very importantly, the distance from a palaeomagnetic pole and the sampled area of the continent, as reflected by palaeomagnetic inclination, provides a direct estimate of the palaeolatitude of the continent.’
- ‘Of the lower plants, lycopods and horse-tails are rare whilst liverworts are abundant, particularly when compared to Cretaceous floras from lower palaeolatitudes.’
- ‘Thus the sedimentological data indicating palaeolatitudes confirm the palaeomagnetic conclusions, in particular in the positioning of the South Pole under the Antarctic part of Gondwana.’
- ‘Fifth, much emphasis has been placed on paleomagnetic data indicating low depositional paleolatitudes.’
- ‘Palaeomagnetic data indicate that the palaeolatitude of the Atacama has been close to that of the present day since the late Jurassic.’
