...Rolf V. Ackermann; Roy W. Schlische; Paul E. Olsen Abstract A chaotic mudstone unit within the lower Blomidon Formation (Late Triassic) has been traced for 35 km in the Mesozoic Fundy rift basin of Nova Scotia. This unit is characterized by highly disrupted bedding that is commonly cut by small...

... ( Wade and MacLean, 1990 ; Leleu et al. , 2009 ). The Wolfville Formation comprises alluvial facies and generally fines upward into the Blomidon Formation aeolian sediments ( Fig. 1 ), only found along the northern boundary of the basin. Is this facies present due to local deposition within the Minas...
