Abstract

Early Paleozoic foredeep evolution in the central Appalachian orogen can be described in terms of five stages: (1) Stable Shelf, (2) Initial Uplift of Shelf, (3) Shelf Exposure, (4) Collapse of Peripheral Bulge, and (5) Basin Fill. In addition, strike-parallel variations in central Appalachian foredeep stratigraphy reflect collision along the irregular, early Paleozoic North American continental margin.
