... of Embry (1990) in which northern Alaska lay within the foreland fold and thrust belt of the Franklinian mobile belt prior to the opening of the Canada Basin. The sequences that are inferred to have been the long-lived source region for Ellesmerian and lower Beaufortian strata were uplifted by Paleozoic...

Abstract Two first-order depositional provinces are distinguished — a southeastern shelf, which encompasses nearly all of the Arctic Platform and a large part of the Franklinian mobile belt, and a northwestern deep water basin. The latter, in turn, is divisible into a southeastern sedimentary...
