...-verging structures formed during Silurian–Early Devonian backthrusting and normal faulting. The revised structural interpretation has implications for the Salinian orogeny and involves (1) southeast-directed transport of the Taconian crustal wedge of the upper plate, followed by normal faulting...

... extending for a minimum length of 500 km. A working hypothesis is proposed in which stresses applied to the continental margin during the Silurian–earliest Devonian Salinian orogeny were transmitted over a distance of >1400 km in the continental interior, where they induced the normal-fault reactivation...

A subsequent hiatus, representing the Early Silurian, may record thermal uplift associated with the Salinian orogeny. Renewed Late Silurian to Devonian loading and sedimentation resulted from...

... evidence supports the hypothesis that the Gaspé Belt in southern Quebec formed after the collapse of the Taconian orogen in Late Silurian time. This event is ascribed to the Salinian Orogeny. The framework from southern Quebec is incorporated in a regional scenario. The Gaspé Belt experienced a Pridolian...

Subsequent uplift and erosion of these Cordilleran strata during any of several Phanerozoic orogenies in western North America may then have provided Late Archean (and other) zircons to the Sur Series. The Sur Series and Salinian cover units contain three Paleo- and Mesoproterozoic...

The proposed tectonic model involves three distinct events beginning with shallow to moderate burial, followed by fracturing and uplift as a result of normal faulting during...

The Pelona-Orocopia-Rand-Catalina schists, in turn, share a common provenance with forearc sequences of southern California and the associated Salinian and Nacimiento blocks of the central Coast Ranges. This observation is most readily explained if the schists were derived from trench sediments...
