An understanding of regional orogenic, climatic, and eustatic processes is critical to interbasinal correlation of Paleozoic strata in eastern North America. Tectonic activity associated with the culmination of Appalachian orogenic events has been shown to have regional influence on paleostructure and sediment dispersal in the Appalachian foreland basin and adjacent intracratonic Illinois and Michigan Basins. The culmination of the Acadian orogeny at the end of the Devonian represents the beginning of a period of general tectonic quiescence extending throughout the early and middle Mississippian in eastern North America. Early Mississippian strata in the Michigan Basin are distinctive and mark...
