... that this entire group of ultramafic bodies represents the deep roots of the Talkeetna arc developed on the southern margin of Wrangellia during Early Jurassic–Cretaceous subduction. In this model, bodies such as Red Mountain represent klippen thrust hundreds of kilometers southward over the McHugh Complex and now...

... exception of the Jutland and Peapack klippen in New Jersey, contain Cambrian rocks. We speculate that any missing Cambrian rocks, assuming they ever existed, were removed tectonically from the rest of the sequence, or possibly consumed during subduction once convergence began, during the Early to Middle...

... assemblage), and is defined by post-accretionary faults: the Big Salmon fault to the west and the d'Abbadie fault system to the east. The zone was interpreted as a lithospheric suture or a crustal-scale transpression zone, and as the root zone of klippen lying on the North American craton to the east. We...

... Tectonic models of the Taconian orogeny in western New England must account for the rapid metamorphism of the Taconic klippen after thrusting. The most likely source of heat for this metamorphism is an overlying hot thrust sheet of accretionary wedge material, which overrode the continental...
