The pre-orogenic assemblages can be separated into a northern belt (the Avalon Platform) and a southern zone (the Meguma Belt). The Avalon Plat­ form is composed of Late Cryptozoic and Early Paleozoic shelf sedimentary rocks and volcanics. In contrast, the Meguma Belt contains an Early to Middle Paleozoic succession which shows evidence of shoaling upwards from deep-sea fans to paralic lithosomes. The Belt extends seaward 200 km toward the present continental slope. The two preorogenic belts…

Geological Development of the Continental Margin of Atlantic Canada

The continental margin of Atlantic Canada was formed by the rifting of continental masses in some areas and by the strike-slip motion between continental blocks in others. These motions imparted

Carbonate–sulphate–redbed facies and cyclic sedimentation of the Windsorian Stage (Middle Carboniferous), Maritime Provinces

After the late Devonian orogeny, thick Carboniferous, mainly continental redbeds, derived from intrabasinal horsts, accumulated in a complex rift-valley system called the Fundy basin. During the

Evidence for diagenetic remanent magnetization in the Maringouin Formation

Samples were obtained at 13 sites in the Maringouin Formation (late Mississippian red sediments) in New Brunswick and subjected to routine thermal demagnetization. After thermal cleaning at 550 °C,
