Most plate tectonic models for the opening of the Gulf of Mexico focus on the fit of different crustal blocks, regional faults, the areal extent of abnormal oceanic crust, transitional crust, and continental crust, as well as on today's geophysical data, but only a few include paleogeographic data. High quality paleogeographic maps are available for the northern part of the Gulf of Mexico, but the same type of information for the southern part is difficult to obtain. However, information from many published sources has been used to compile a series of maps of the entire country of Mexico, including...
