English: Map of world geologic provinces
   Extended continental crust
Age of Oceanic crust:
   0–20 Ma
   20–65 Ma
   >65 Ma
Important note: These geologic province map depicts only features approximately 150 km across and greater due to the fact that the resolution of the maps should be consistent with the resolution of the seismic refraction data. For example, the young uplifted blocks of the Variscan Orogen in Central and Western Europe such as the Rhenish Massif or the Massif Central are not depicted as ‘orogens’ but as part of the ‘extended continental crust’ in the western half of Europe.

Deutsch: Karte der geologischen Provinzen der Erde.
   Gedehnte kontinentale Kruste
Alter der ozeanischen Kruste:
   0–20 Ma
   20–65 Ma
   >65 Ma
Hinweis: Diese Karte führt nur Einheiten, deren Ausbissfläche einen Durchmesser von mindestens 150 km besitzt. Beispielsweise sind die jung herausgehobenen Schollen des Variszischen Orogens in Mittel- und Westeuropa, wie z.B. die Rheinische Masse oder das französische Zentralmassiv, nicht als „phanerozoische Orogene“, sondern als Teil der „gedehnten kontinentalen Kruste“ in der Westhälfte Europas dargestellt.
