During the early [[Jurassic]], the [[supercontinent]] [[Pangaea]] broke up into the northern supercontinent [[Laurasia]] and the southern supercontinent [[Gondwana]]; the Gulf of Mexico opened in the new rift between North America and what is now Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. The Jurassic North Atlantic Ocean was relatively narrow, while the South Atlantic did not open until the following [[Cretaceous]] Period, when Gondwana itself rifted apart. The [[Tethys]] Sea closed, and the Neotethys basin appeared. Climates were warm, with no evidence of [[glaciation]]. As in the Triassic, there was apparently no land near either pole, and no extensive ice caps existed.
