  The definitions of mapped time slices were presented by Golonka and Kiessling ().Recently also, the simple stratigraphic “Late Devonian” slice was applied by Golonka (b).The paleoenvironments and lithofacies (Fig. 5, Fig. 6, Fig. 7, Fig. 8, Fig. 9, Fig. 10) represent the whole Late Devonian are displayed on the Ma base maps.

Cenozoic uplift and exhumation of the East Greenland margin (Bonow et al., ) has exposed a series of east-west–extended fault blocks, defined largely by eastward-dipping faults developed during multiple rift phases since the Devonian (Surlyk, ; Price et al., ; Whitham et al., ; Lundin and Dore, ).The record of Carboniferous–Eocene sedimentation preserved within these.   The new geological map of East Greenland The new geological map of East Greenland Brooks, Kent The ‘Caledonian Orogeny’ conjures up pictures of the Scottish Highlands: the Moine Thrust, the Dalradian metasediments and massive granites. However, although the Caledonian was first investigated and mapped in Scotland, hence the name, there is much more to it.   A defining stage in vertebrate evolution was the origin of tetrapods, the limbed vertebrates, some m years ago. Remarkable discoveries in East Greenland .

A new species of thelodont in the genus Amaltheolepis characterizes a narrow stratigraphic interval in the Pragian, Lower Devonian, and was proposed by V. Karatajute-Talimaa as useful for correlations of lagoonal facies. Vertebrates that predominate in the shallow water, and those in the deep water environments were characterized, and.

Hambrey (Cambridge) compared the Vendian successions around the Arctic-North Atlantic region, concentrating on East Greenland and Svalbard, and discussed the stratigraphic and sedimentological evidence. The Pennsylvanian to Triassic was generally a time of thermal subsidence and formation of a broad sag basin (e.g., Rønnevik et al., ; Gudlaugsson, Faleide, & Johansen, ), although some Permian to Triassic extension is known from onshore East Greenland (Surlyk, ) and has been proposed for the Loppa High (Glørstad-Clark, Faleide.

North America Placement. The Earth’s landmasses are more dynamic than one may think. The outer layer of the Earth’s crust is actually broken into a series of tectonic plates that move independently from one another.

The movements of these plates are responsible for building the Earth’s tallest mountains and deepest trenches. In his memoir " Some New Investigations of the Devonian Stratigraphy and Tectonics of East Greenland," H.

Biitler (Medd. om Grönland,No. 2,35 pp.) shows that the Old Red Sandstone of East Greenland is an orogenic sediment.

East-west movements within the Caledonian belt of folding repeatedly elevated, folded and disrupted the. In East Greenland, however, strongly tilted and folded Early-Middle Devonian strata are cut by an unconformity that separate them from much less deformed Late Devonian deposits (Hartz, ), in.

Some new investigations of the. Devonian stratigraphy and the teconics of East. East Greenland tetrapods are Devonian in age, Geology, 27, Outcrops of the Eleonore Bay Basin are cut by the “western fault zone,” a major normal fault zone that bounds the Devonian basin of North-East Greenland (Fig.

13; Larsen and Bengaard, ). Based on evidence from the Devonian succession, sinistral strike-slip movements in the order of 10–20 km along the western fault zone were estimated.

DEVONIAN ROCKS were discovered in east Greenland in by A. Nathorst, and termed the Cape Graah formation. The fish remains found were determined by S. Woodward () as Upper Devonian. Lauge Koch () ascertained that the Devonian conglomerates and sandstones rest with angular unconformity on Caledonian-folded formations, and.

Special Publication of the International Association of Sedimentologists, 17, January The East Greenland Caledonides, which make up an ∼km-long stretch of North-East Greenland, were formed by the collision of Laurentia and Baltica in mid-Silurian time.

The East Greenland Basins are bounded to the east and west by north-south striking faults, which are cut by northwest-southeast faults. This fault pattern creates a series of diamond-shaped fault blocks which subsided progressively from south to north. This subsidence pattern may be explained by a gradual re lease of east-west strain.

The temporal resolution of the new stratigraphic framework for North-East and North Greenland permits a detailed comparison of the subsidence histories along the Laurentian margin from western Newfoundland to the NE tip of Greenland, a distance of over km.

Attempts to determine the subsidence history of the Laurentian margins were. Rift Basin between Norway and Greenland and the North Greenland - Svalbard Basin between these two terranes, Both are included in the Middle Carboniferous to Tertiary Wandel Sea Basin (HAKANSSON & STEMMERIKHAKANSSON & PEDERSENHAKANSSON et al.

Westerly, leeside shedding of lime mud from these carbonate banks by storm-induced currents resulted in even further infilling of the basin.

One stratigraphic marker bed in the lower Thumb Mountain Formation and two markers in the upper Thumb Mountain Formation (Fig. 2) are locally down-dropped and indicate widespread collapse in the central part of the Polaris deposit.
