Summary:Since the 1974 meeting on the age of the European continental crust, various new data, including those from a new dating method based on Sm-Nd, have been in obtained. These recent data, using stable isotope geochronology, have been reviewed and are considered to still favour the model of continent formation presented earlier, which envisages Upper Proterozoic ocean sedimentation with magmatism and metamorphism since the end of Proterozoic or Cadomian time.
