... The Penobscot orogeny in the Appalachians, the Grampian orogeny in the British Isles, and the Finnmarkian orogeny in the Scandinavian Caledonides are Late Cambrian–Early Ordovician events that characterize terranes having similar pre- and post-deformation features. Together they record a major...

... of the Kalak nappe complex were emplaced in late Cambrian/early Ordovician times during the Finnmarkian orogenic stage—probably the analogue of the Grampian stage of the British Caledonian. The tectonic-metamorphic events of the Finnmarkian stage were broadly coeval with the emplacement of basic and alkaline...
