Abstract Nova Scotia during the Carboniferous lay at the heart of palaeoequatorial Euramerica in a broadly intermontane palaeoequatorial setting, the Maritimes-West-European province; to the westExpand
The impact of climate change, tectonism and hydrology on the formation of Carboniferous tropical intermontane mires: the Springhill coalfield, Cumberland Basin, Nova Scotia
Abstract Both climate and tectonism are influential in determining basin and mire hydrology. In the rapidly subsiding intermontane basins of Euramerica which formed in response to theExpand
The Pennsylvanian Joggins Formation of Nova Scotia: sedimentological log and stratigraphic framework of the historic fossil cliffs
Carboniferous strata of the famous Joggins fossil cliffs hold a unique place in the history of geology. Made famous by the fossil discoveries of Lyell and Dawson in the mid 1800s, the cliffs continueExpand
Metalliferous coals of the Westphalian A Joggins Formation, Cumberland basin, Nova Scotia, Canada: Petrology, geochemistry, and palynology
Abstract Five coals of Westphalian A (early Middle Pennsylvanian) age were sampled from the Joggins Formation section exposed along Chignecto Bay at Joggins, Nova Scotia. Coal beds along the bay wereExpand
Invertebrate trace fossils and agglutinated foraminifera as indicators of marine influence within the classic Carboniferous section at Joggins, Nova Scotia, Canada
The sea cliffs at Joggins, Nova Scotia, are the most extensive and continuous Carboniferous section in eastern North America. Although the section has been considered to have formed within aExpand
The relationship between coal petrography and depositional environments from selected coal basins in Canada
Abstract This paper reviews current research in Canada relating to the sedimentology of coal-bearing sequences and the petrographic character of contained seams from selected intermontane andExpand
Evaporite tectonics and the late Paleozoic stratigraphic development of the Cumberland basin, Appalachians of Atlantic Canada
The Cumberland basin is part of the large and deep Maritimes Basin of Atlantic Canada, interpreted to have developed at tropical latitudes in a tectonic environment of dextral strike slip. TheExpand
Late Carboniferous and Early Permian drainage patterns in Atlantic Canada
Paleoflow data have been compiled for Late Carboniferous (late Westphalian A) to Early Permian alluvial deposits over a large area of Atlantic Canada. The data, which include more than 36 000 measu...
A fossil lycopsid forest succession in the classic Joggins section of Nova Scotia: Paleoecology of a disturbance-prone Pennsylvanian wetland
Standing lycopsid trees occur at 60 or more horizons within the 1425 m thick coal-bearing interval of the classic Carboniferous section at Joggins, with one of the most consistently productiveExpand
