This part of the Grenville Province of Ontario is made up of two tectonic elements: (1) High-grade gneisses that were part of the Ga continental margin and (2) a package of volcanic, plutonic, and sedimentary rocks that are thought.

The book serves as a modern comprehensive statement on the Earth's Precambrian crust, covering the main aspects of distribution, lithiostratigraphy, age, and petrogenesis of Precambrian rocks by continent within the context of the Earth's evolving continental by: The main goal of this book is to provide a modern comprehensive statement on the Earth's Precambrian crust.

It uses geographic and tectonic location, lithostratigraphy, geochronology, and petrogenesis as a basis for considering Precambrian coastal evolution--including the role of plate tectonics.

About this book. Introduction. Progress in Precambrian geology has been exceptionally great, indeed quite striking for geologists of the older generation; only some years ago the Precambrian appeared as an uncertain and even mystic prelude to geologic evolution. Even the very name - Precambrian - means some indi­ visible unit in the.

The geology of Ontario consists of the study of the rock formations in the most populated province of Canada. Ontario has some of the oldest rocks on Earth.

It is made up of ancient Precambrian igneous and metamorphic rock and overlain by younger sedimentary rocks and soils. About 61% of the province is covered by the Canadian Shield. The shield can further be divided into three sections or provinces. 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, marine geology of the North Atlantic.

Gickford. After the period of mountain building, there was a long period of erosion, during which the land was worn down to almost a plain. By the end of the Precambrian, million years ago, the relief and general geology of Madoc and Bancroft were much as we see them today. During the Ordovician period, eastern Ontario was covered in shallow seas.

The geology of the buried Precambrian basement under Manitoulin Island in northern Lake Huron, Ontario, has been re-evaluated on the basis of aeromagnetic data, well cuttings, core samples, and rubidium–strontium and uranium–lead geochronologic data on some of the subsurface by: Geology, Stratigraphic-Pre-Cambrian.
