...-age remnant ocean basin at the western termination of the OuachitaMarathon suture zone. Tectonic and sedimentary recycling along subduction zones separating Gondwanan (upper plate) and Laurentian (lower plate) blocks likely contributed to the Laurentia-dominated distribution of age provinces observed...

There is little reflection of this collision in the tectonic history of the Delaware and Val Verde basins, but much of the basin fill was from this southerly source. Cooling and contraction controlled...
