Geology of the Appalachian-Caledonian Orogen...

Full Title: Geology of the Appalachian-Caledonian Orogen in Canada and Greenland

Editor: Harold Williams

Published as part of the Decade of North American Geology (DNAG) Geology of North America series, this volume focuses on the highly populated Canadian Appalachian region. The chapter on the East Greenland Caledonides stands alone and there is no attempt to integrate the geological accounts of the two far removed regions. Rocks of the Canadian Appalachian region are described under four broad temporal divisions: lower Paleozoic and older, middle Paleozoic, upper Paleozoic, and Mesozoic. The rocks of these temporal divisions define geographic zones, belts, basins, and graben, respectively. The area is of special interest because so many modern concepts of mountain building are based on Appalachian rocks and structures.
