Abstract

This chapter describes and presents a newly compiled map illustrating the paleogeography of Laurentia during the earliest Ordovician, a time when the great American carbonate bank was at one of its greatest extents and a period for which the most is understood. The map depicts the known or postulated extent of the inner detrital belt, the great American carbonate bank and the more problematic (commonly structurally relocated) outer detrital belt. The period on which the map is based and discussed in the accompanying text is based on the Early Ordovician (early Ibexian) (early Tremadocian) Stonehenge transgression.
