Sequences are defined as “rock-stratigraphic units of higher rank than group, megagroup or supergroup, traceable over major areas of continent and bounded by unconformities of interregional scope.”.

Decade of North American Geology GSA Decade of North American Geology Published between andthe Decade of North American Geology offers a comprehensive look at the geology of North America. These valuable resources include many large maps, transects, and more.

The Geology of North America Volume A (): The Geology of North America—An. The continent-ocean transition can be very sharp, with the HVLC formed on the seaward side of a rifted and thinned continental margin. The temporal relationships with the LIP are unknown but the spatial relationships evident on seismic sections would argue for syn-rift formation (i.e., a syn-LIP or post-LIP history; e.g., Mohriack et al., The Phanerozoic history of North America can be divided into three broad phases:During the first phase, which lasted from the Late Precambrian to the Triassic, Pangea was under construction.

The Phanerozoic history of North America can be divided into three broad phases: During the first phase, which lasted from the Late Precambrian to the Triassic, Pangea was under construction. The western continental margin was either a divergent (“passive”) margin, facing the paleo-Pacific Ocean (Panthalassa) or a backarc basin bordering that ocean, while the eastern margin.

The North American Continent-Ocean Transects Program is a study of the struc- ture and Phanerozoic evolution of the transitional region of the North American hemisphere between its craton (Figure 1, zone 1) and bordering oceanic lithosphere (Figure 1, zone 5~.
