... ). The quarry cuts through the Westphalian-aged Rhode Island Formation of the Narragansett Bay Group and exposes subgreenschist-facies coal, shale, mudstone, and sandstone (Lyons and Chase 1976). The slabs bearing the trace fossils and raindrop imprints consist of dark-gray, parallel-laminated shales...

... the Ediacara biota. Several aspects of their argument are relevant here; most importantly, Xenophyophores are unlikely to be represented in the Ediacaran Period as they are a group of recently evolved Foraminifera. Nilpenia is larger than known giant foraminifera and shows no evidence of chambers. Thin...

... Bay Formation. The features consist of sub-lakefloor buckles, about 50–100 m wide with structural relief of 5+ m, and surface bedrock popups, 10–15 m wide with a general relief of 1–2 m. Deeper bedrock faults are possibly associated with some of the sub-lakefloor buckles. Trends of the popups...

... evidence of early to middle Holocene low-level erosion in the Lake Erie and Georgian Bay basins is tentatively attributed to wave effects on water surfaces below outlet thresholds ( Lewis, 1999 ; Blasco, 2001 ). This hypothesis of past hydrologic closure is particularly timely, given the current...
