Paleomagnetic data confirm geological evidence for tropical paleolatitudes for deposition of the Catskill Delta and related Old Red deposits in Europe. A tectonic model constrained by paleomagnetic data suggests that the Catskill deposits are the product of the Acadian orogeny of the Northern Appalachians as a complex continent-continent collision between Armorica (Hercynian Europe), Laurentia (cratonic North America) and possibly Gondwana, with the Traveler terrane (central New England and New Brunswick) rotated and compressed in between.
