.... The first domain to arrive at Laurentia was Carolinia, which accreted in the Middle Ordovician during the Cherokee orogeny. Salinic accretion of Ganderia occurred shortly thereafter and was followed by the Acadian accretion of Avalonia. The Acadian orogeny was immediately followed by Middle Devonian – Early...

... al., 2016 ). The Cherokee orogeny (ca. 430 Ma) has also been proposed as an additional orogenic event in the region, although compelling evidence in the EBR is lacking ( Hibbard et al., 2010 , 2012 ). Regional metamorphism in the EBR during the Taconic orogeny reached upper amphibolite facies...

..., such as the Ouachitas. If the Cherokee or Chattanooga shales are not entirely satisfactory as source beds for the oil at El Dorado, Kansas, at least their proximity to the pool favors them. That the generation of oil is not contingent on, and perhaps not even favored by, intensive orogeny, development of high...

Since these coarse deposits overlie fine clay shale of early Pennsylvanian age, it appears that a moderately strong uplift of the ridge occurred in early Pennsylvanian, perhaps late Cherokee time—long after the first uplift of the ridge. © 1926 American Association...

It is regarded as post-Mississippian inasmuch as Middle Pennsylvanian (Cherokee) beds lie on the eroded and truncated Mississippian beds. Nemaha...
