Faill (2003) provides an important contribution to our understanding of the geology and evolution of the Triassic-Jurassic basins of the central Atlantic margin that formed during the breakup of Pangea (e.g., Olsen, 1997). In particular, Faill draws attention to the importance of fluvial and alluvial inputs from the southeastern and northwestern margins of the Birdsboro basin (defined by Faill as the inferred continuous depositional basin consisting of the present-day Newark, Gettysburg, Culpeper, and Barboursville basins; Fig. 1) in influencing its stratigraphic architecture. He also highlights the hypothesis that substantial postrift erosion has modified the Birdsboro basin. Furthermore, Faill...
