Abstract During the Late Triassic, the Newark rift basin of Eastern North America was in the interior of tropical (2.5–9.5°N) Pangaea. Strikingly cyclical lacustrine rocks comprise most of the 6770 m of continuous core recovered from this basin by the Newark Basin Coring Project. Six of the seven drill cores (each from 800 to 1300 m long) from this project are used to construct a composite lake-level curve that provides a much needed record of long term variations in continental tropical… CONTINUE READING
