...-dominated pulses are explained as products of slab-breakoff rather than contemporaneous slab subduction. The four phases of orogenesis associated with accretion of these microcontinents are known as the Taconic, Salinic, Acadian and Neoacadian orogenies, respectively. The Ordovician Taconic orogeny...

...Ian W. Hillenbrand; Michael L. Williams Abstract The Acadian and Neoacadian orogenies are widely recognized, yet poorly understood, tectono-thermal events in the New England Appalachian Mountains (USA). We quantified two phases of Paleozoic crustal thickening using geochemical proxies. Acadian (425...

... orogenic front. Orogenesis continued in the Late Devonian to Carboniferous Neoacadian orogeny. This phase was also associated with amphibolite-facies metamorphism and intrusion of I- and S-type granitoids. Widespread crustal melting and 50–60 km crustal thicknesses may have favored the development...

... England and migrated southward in time. Once thought to be the fourth tectophase of the Acadian orogeny, this event is now called the Neoacadian orogeny. Active deformational loading during the event initially produced the Sunbury black-shale basin, whereas subsequent relaxational phases produced...

Others consider the Acadian orogeny to be largely absent in this region aside from local magmatism and metamorphism ( Hibbard, 2000 ). In either case, metamorphism documented for this Acadian-Neoacadian...
