Developments in the Appalachian-Caledonian-Variscan Orogen

Title: New Developments in the Appalachian-Caledonian-Variscan Orogen

Editors: Yvette D. Kuiper, J. Brendan Murphy, R. Damian Nance, Robin A. Strachan, and Margaret D. Thompson

New analytical and field techniques, as well as increased international communication and collaboration, have resulted in significant new geological discoveries within the Appalachian-Caledonian-Variscan orogen. Cross-Atlantic correlations are more tightly constrained and the database that helps us understand the origins of Gondwanan terranes continues to grow. Special Paper 554 provides a comprehensive overview of our current understanding of the evolution of this orogen. It takes the reader along a clockwise path around the North Atlantic Ocean from the U.S. and Canadian Appalachians, to the Caledonides of Spitsbergen, Scandinavia, Scotland and Ireland, and thence south to the Variscides of Morocco.
