Although the Trenton Group of New York State has been studied for more than 150 years, no comprehensive description of its facies patterns has ever been produced. Such a description is presented here. The facies patterns of the Trenton Group reveal that this unit’s deposition was indirectly controlled by the Taconic orogeny then going on in nearby New England.
