This volume celebrates the 50th anniversary of Tuzo Wilson's landmark paper 'Did the Atlantic close and then re-open?'. It brings together geologists, geophysicists, and modellers in order to re-assess the legacy of the Wilson Cycle concept and how our understanding of inheritance in continental tectonics has evolved over the past 50 years
