Summary Of Basin Tectonic History

It is becoming increasingly clear that the latest Paleozoic and Mesozoic tectonic history of eastern North America, including the Newark basin, is much more complicated than is usually thought of for the type Atlantic passive margin (e.g. Malinconico, 2002 Olsen, 1997 Schlische, 2002 Wintsch, 1997 Withjack et al., 1995, 1998). It has long been realized that regional extension relatively quickly followed the late Paleozoic compressive and oblique assembly of Pangea. However, the discovery of...

Ministop f Discordant contact between Palisade sill and Lockatong Formation

Latitude 40 51.063N, longitude 073 5.672'W. This exposure shows the contact between the Palisade sill and Lockatong Formation jumping first up several meters and then back down (Figure 43). The more mud-rich intervals appear to behave as if brittle, with essentially no assimilation into the sill, while the tan arkose appears to have flowed at the sill contact, with considerable chaotic mixing into the sill. Proceed south along Henry Hudson Drive. 51.4 mi. At the middle of the sharp right turn...

Stop e Concordant contact between Palisade sill and Lockatong Formation

Latitude 40 51.253'N, longitude 073 57.587'W. This comprises what is probably the most spectacular exposure anywhere in the basin of the Palisade sill with the underlying sedimentary rock (Figure 42). The contact is exposed for more than 50 m along strike, and reveals the intimate structure of the Lockatong-sill contact. The sill itself is part of a series of probably once-continuous sills and plutons that extended over almost the entire Newark basin, making this component of the CAMP one of...

Triassic And Jurassic Continental Communities And The Triassicjurassic Boundary

The superb time control and resolution provided by the astronomically-calibrated paleomagnetic polarity timescale makes the Newark Supergroup, particularly the Newark basin, one of the best venues for examining tropical continental floral and faunal change across the Triassic-Jurassic boundary Kent and Olsen, 1999 Olsen and Kent, 1999 . Its one deficit, as cited by Benton 1994 , has been a lack of osteological remains of tetrapods, but this is rapidly being remedied Carter et al., 2001 Olsen et...

Tectonostratigraphic Sequences Of The Newark Basin And Their Depositional Environments And Paleontology

There is no compelling evidence for TS I in the Newark basin, although there are hints on the NB-1 seismic line that a pre-TS II package may be present adjacent to the border fault system Schlische, 2002 . All of the Stockton Formation below the Cutaloosa Member appears to belong in TS II Figures 4 . This is based on magnetostratigraphic and lithological correlation between the upper Stockton Formation and the Newfound Formation Taylorsville basin that appears to reveal a small hiatus at the...
