...). The area of the Rheinisches Schiefergebirge in the Early Devonian was located at a low latitude south of the equator at the southern margin of the Old Red Continent ( Scotese and McKerrow, 1990 ). The Caledonian orogen was undergoing erosion, and vast quantities of siliciclastic material were transported...

... Red Continent, and the collision itself was responsible for the Acadian orogeny, not for the earlier Taconic orogeny as postulated previously. The Carboniferous collision of Gondwana with the Old Red Continent subsequently formed Pangaea and produced the Appalachian-Hercynian orogeny. *Permanent...

... was delivered from the east as eolian dust from the “Old Red Continent.” By the early Frasnian, the west Alberta arch was submerged, and by middle to late Frasnian time the Peace River arch was largely covered. During the late middle Frasnian a pronounced rise in MS signatures can be tied directly to deposition...

... by dextral transpression along the Moldanubian Thrust. This orocline was formed when central parts of the Variscan belt were accommodated in an embayment of the southern margin of the Old Red Continent. The Variscan basement NE of the Elbe Fault Zone is largely concealed under Permo-Mesozoic rocks...

Abstract The Devonian carbonate complexes in the Rhenish Trough of the Variscan Geosyncliue (central Europe) range in age from Eifelian to middle Frasnian and occur at: (1) The outer shelf (southeast margin of the Old Red Continent) in the western part as a broad shelf- lagoon facies overlying...

Devonian strata of the ‘Old Red Sandstone continent’, and their documented earlier Devonian history in Gondwana, is a stratigraphic anomaly requiring explanation in terms of palaeogeographic reconstructions for the Devonian Period (see Discussion). Of added interest is the fact that in four widely...

... on other criteria. Abstract East Greenland's Old Red Sandstone basin formed in the interior of a mega-continent created by the Caledonian collision of Baltica and Laurentia. The basin has been regarded as a typical late- to post-orogenic extensional basin, formed in a collapsing orogen. Cross-cutting...

It is proposed that the unusual sediment geometries preserved are intimately related to the timing of land plant colonization of the Old Red Sandstone continent. Channels were extremely broad with low relief and flow over interfluvial...

These findings suggest that the growth of individual continents is significantly affected by the accretion of older microcontinental blocks, and that the extent of early continental crust therefore may be greater than generally estimated.
