... arc) and are interpreted as the southern extension of the Skolai arc. We propose that the gabbros represent the initiation of extension through an arc located at the margin of the Alexander terrane (Skolai/Sicker arc system). Extension progressed enough to deposit basalts within a back-arc basin...

... of the inherited zircons and the isotopic signatures of plutons from the central and western Talkeetna Mountains are consistent with assimilation of basement lithologies from the adjacent Wrangellia terrane. In southern Alaska, the Wrangellia terrane is composed of the Paleozoic Skolai arc, the extensive Triassic...

... to a change from an offshore arc system controlled by slab rollback, to one in which the overriding North American plate advanced toward its subduction zone as the Atlantic Ocean opened. The initial propagation of magmatic arcs along the western margin of Laurentia (ca. 400-360 Ma) coincided with the final...

... of the Craig subterrane, thus identifying the oldest known geological tie between Wrangellia and the Alexander terrane. The Late Devonian continental arc extended south (present coordinates) into an oceanic realm, beyond the limits of the Craig subterrane, and generated the Sicker arc system of southern...

... submerged arc crust. There are distinct differences in volcanic stratigraphy and basement composition between Northern and Southern Wrangellia. On Vancouver Island, ∼6 km of high-Ti basalts, with minor amounts of picrites, record an emergent sequence of pillow basalt, pillow breccia and hyaloclastite...

... of the Farewell terrane. Sedimentary facies consist of high- and low-density sediment-gravity-flow deposits and are interpreted to represent a submarine fan depositional system. Sandstone modal composition trends show a relative abundance of lithic volcanic fragments (∼65%) and subordinate occurrences of lithic...
