So if you are a geologist and have never read "The Evolution of North America", it is time that you did. If you are just an interested non-geologist, you will enjoy the book too/5(8).

Summaries of the major features of the geology of North America and the adjacent oceanic regions are presented. Twenty chapters include concise reviews of current thinking about Precambrian basement, Phanerozoic orogens, cratonic basins, passive-margin geology of the Atlantic and Gulf Coast regions, marine and terrestrial geology of the Caribbean region.

(and in North America) gave rise to the idea of geosynclines—a great down sag of the earth's crust that thereby allowed the accumulation of thousands of feet of sediments.

The transitional region is the part of North America between the craton, little deformed in Phanerozoic time, and the modern ocean basins.

Still, North America remained firmly attached to Laurasia in the east and west. (New York and London: McGraw-Hill Book Co., Inc., ) 19s. THIS account of the geological history of North America is intended for students and.

This book discusses the current state of research on the geology of the area between North and South America, with a focus on the origin of the Car-ibbean Plate. Prevailing understanding is that the Caribbean Plate formed in the Pacific and migrated between the Americas. According to this model, the plate comprises oceanic and volcanic arc rocks.

The geological history of Earth follows the major events in Earth's past based on the geological time scale, a system of chronological measurement based on the study of the planet's rock layers (stratigraphy).Earth formed about billion years ago by accretion from the solar nebula, a disk-shaped mass of dust and gas left over from the formation of the Sun, which also created the.

Trent University Library : North America - North America - Tectonic evolution: North America is an ancient continent in several respects. It contains some of the oldest rocks on the Earth, its interior has been stable for the longest period of time, and it was the first continent to achieve approximately its present size and shape.

Although its known geologic history spans almost 4 billion years, two ages stand. The Geological Evolution of Australia and New Zealand focuses on the stratigraphy of Australia and New Zealand. This compendium covers the stratigraphy, paleogeography, and paleontology of various systems, including the Precambrian, Cambrian, Ordovician, Silurian, Devonian, and Carboniferous systems.

North America - North America - Geologic history: Continents have collided and broken apart repeatedly over geologic time.

When they separate, new ocean basins develop between the diverging pieces through the process of seafloor spreading.

Spreading, which originates at oceanic ridges, is compensated (to conserve surface area on the planet) by subduction—the.
