orogen, and the Central Plains orogen. The Archean and Proterozoic rocks are truncated to the east by the Grenville Front tectonic zone, a Middle Proterozoic northwest-verging zone of thrusting directed toward the interior of the North American craton, known as Laurentia (Hoffman,and references therein).Cited by: He has published multiple research papers concerned with the petrologic evolution and tectonic significance of Precambrian rocks of the Blue Ridge province, and is the lead editor of two Memoirs concerning the geology of the regional Grenville and Appalachian orogens published by the Geological Society of tion: Associate Dean.

North America is a continent that has grown over time by horizontal attachment of material onto its margins.

Studying the process of continental growth in the geologic past gives insight into fundamental components of plate tectonics, and sheds light onto processes at work at modern plate boundaries, in which mid- and lower-crustal rocks are generally hidden from : Ruth Frances Aronoff.

The Phanerozoic history of North America can be divided into three broad phases: During the first phase, which lasted from the Late Precambrian to the Triassic, Pangea was under construction.

The western continental margin was either a divergent (“passive”) margin, facing the paleo-Pacific Ocean (Panthalassa) or a backarc basin bordering that ocean, while the eastern margin, Cited by: 8.

The 39 papers in this volume offer a system-wide perspective on rocks and processes of the Mesoproterozoic Grenville orogen and Appalachian inliers and. Northwesternmost, the Grenville Front Tectonic Zone (GFTZ) exhibits ductile deformation in gneisses with margin-parallel structures inclined toward the orogen.

At its northwest limit (Grenville Front), steeply southeast-dipping mylonitized rocks abut Archean supracrustal and plutonic rocks overlain by Lower Proterozoic (Huronian) by: 7.

Gneiss Belt; GFTZ, Grenville Front Tectonic Zone Geological setting The Grenville Orogen represents one of the oldest linear orogenic belts stretching from Newfoundland in the north through eastern Canada, the eastern United States to Texas and central Mexico in the south.

The Phanerozoic history of North America, when viewed from the perspective of Pangea, can be divided into three broad phases with gradational time boundaries, as described in the following paragraphs.

During the first phase, which lasted from the late Precambrian to the Pennsylvanian, Pangea was under construction and the North American craton was marked by various, Cited by: 6. Other articles where Grenville Orogen is discussed: North America: billion to million years ago: northwest-directed crustal-scale thrusting in the Grenville orogenic belt.

The belt is exposed principally along the southeastern margin of the Canadian Shield, but inliers occur in the Appalachians, the East Greenland Caledonides, Texas, and Mexico.

Proterozoic Life Acritarchs & Plankton. The Proterozoic includes over half the history of life on this planet, but the available data about Proterozoic organisms are exceedingly sparse.

We usually have a little discussion about plankton at about this point on the Time pages, but we know practically nothing about plankton in the Proterozoic. "The Appalachians constitute one of Earth's major tectonic features and have served as a springboard for innovative geologic thought for more than years.

This volume contains 36 original papers reporting the results of research performed throughout nearly the entire length and breadth of the Appalachian region, including all major provinces and geographical areas. The Grenville orogeny, which occurred between about billion and billion years ago, was another step in the accretion of the North American continent.

Where did the Grenville orogeny occur. The Grenville orogeny was a step in the accretion of Laurentia, adding a belt that stretched from northern Canada far down into the eastern United. Structural, petrological, and geochronological studies of the middle to late Proterozoic Grenville orogen in Ontario, Canada, indicate that a major extensional fault developed synchronously with late thrusting.

This fault zone was initiated during peak metamorphism and extended into the crust to depths of at least 25 kilometers. The temporal and spatial relations.

The ages of the THO and the Grenville Orogen are such that it is actually viable to consider their developments both in terms of plate tectonic and nonplate tectonic processes; this is due to the fact that the age of onset for plate tectonics ranges from as early as Ga [Hopkins et al., ] to as late as Ma ago [Hamilton, ].Cited by: 8.

An orogeny is an event that leads to both structural deformation and compositional differentiation of the Earth's lithosphere (crust and uppermost mantle) at convergent plate orogen or orogenic belt develops when a continental plate crumples and is pushed upwards to form one or more mountain ranges; this involves a series of geological processes collectively called.
