Baltica is a progeny of Rodinia, born from the breakup of the supercontinent in the Neoproterozoic. Within Rodinia, Baltica is generally placed adjacent to NE Laurentia but in a variety of configurations, which vary by up to km along the strike of the Laurentian margin and include both right-way-up and upside-down orientations (current coordinates).
Nena, an acronym for Northern Europe–North America, was the Early Proterozoic amalgamation of Baltica and Laurentia into a single "cratonic landmass", a name first proposed in Since then several similar Proterozoic supercontinents have been proposed, including Nuna and Arctica, that include other Archaean cratons, such as Siberia and East Antarctica.

Introduction: There is widespread and vigorous debate about the relative roles that environmental and biological factors played in driving. Oxygen levels in Earth's early atmosphere had an important influence on the evolution of complex life.
Planavsky et al. analyzed the isotopic signature of chromium in sedimentary rocks from across the globe—a proxy for past oxygen levels. Oxygen levels in the mid-Proterozoic ( billion to million years ago) were very low: less than % of the modern atmosphere.

The Ga boundary is somewhat arbitrary: shift from "Archean" to "Proterozoic"-style crust begins at Ga in southern Africa, but not until in North Ameirca, and after in some other regions.
Lithologies of the Proterozoic: Stromatolites VERY abundant throughout. Some argue that exceedingly low mid-Proterozoic pO 2 was a direct impediment to metazoan evolution prior to the Neoproterozoic Era (Planavsky et al., ), whereas others argue that oxygen levels required by early animals were in place long before their Neoproterozoic appearance (Butterfield, ; Zhang et al., ).
The discovery of a mid-Proterozoic rift basin in the crystalline basement rocks under the Bellefontaine Outlier area, Ohio has had a number of consequences on our understanding of Precambrian tectonics and stratigraphy of western Ohio and the north- central North American midcontinent.

Three 7 ½' quadrangles in this area have been mapped under the Arizona STATEMAP program (Chino Valley North, Paulden, and Wineglass Ranch), three more are drafted but not yet released pending incorporation of geochronologic, geochemical, and other data (Jerome Canyon, Chino Valley South, and Prescott Valley North), and two more will be mapped.

reworks the till and other poorly sorted material into thick deposits of well sorted glacio-fluvial sediment called outwash or stratified drift. All of these sediment types can be found in several different glacial morphological features on the planet today (e.g., eskers, drumlins, moraines etc).
We can’t really. Unequivocal evidence for the Proterozoic reconstruction of Australia‐Antarctica and Laurentia remains elusive, although various authors have interpreted sedimentary and igneous events in terms of initial (Neoproterozoic) rifting, and final (Neoproterozoic/Cambrian) drifting.
The synchronous rifting and drifting reflect the tectonics of a late Neoproterozoic Pangea (East Gondwanaland and.The Proterozoic framework of southern Laurentia is well known, but the origin and assembly of lithotectonic belts, and their relation to other cratons in Rodinia remain controversial.
More enigmatic is the composition, age and origin of Archean-Proterozoic crust in East Antarctica because of nearly complete ice cover.A km wide early Proterozoic orogenic belt in Arizona and adjacent areas is divided into lithotectonic blocks by northeast- and north-trending shear zones.
Structural and U-Pb zircon studies suggest that these blocks may have experienced different tectonic histories prior to their juxtaposition by thrust and strike-slip movements on shear zones.
