1. Introduction [2] The separation between Greenland and Canada has remained largely unsolved because of an insufficient understanding of the crustal nature in Baffin Bay and Davis Strait and the tectonic relationship of both areas to the Labrador Sea. In order to address this problem, the German research vessel Maria S. Merian carried out a geophysical survey in Davis Strait and southern Cited by: Pre-Rift. The Scotian Basin is located offshore Nova Scotia where it extends for km from the Yarmouth Arch / United States border in the southwest to the Avalon Uplift on the Grand Banks of Newfoundland in the northeast ().With an average breadth of km, the total area of the basin is approximately , km of the basin lies on the present-day continental .

The Avalon Terrane in Maritime Canada extends from Cape Breton Island through northern Nova Scotia (Antigonish and Cobequid highlands) to southern New Brunswick. The terrane contains abundant late Proterozoic volcanic rocks (∼– m.y. old).Cited by:

The southern Chile Trench, caused by the subduction of the South American plate, also forms part of the western border. The eastern edge of the Scotia plate is the East Scotia Ridge, a divergent boundary which is spreading at a rate of 60 mm/yr in the northern part of the East Scotia Ridge to 70 mm/yr in the southern portion.

To explain this, in a paleogeographic map published in (before the “rebirth” of the continental-drift theory about ), Dunbar inserted a land barrier to separate the Cambrian sea of Nova Scotia from that of New Bruns.

The Scotia Plate (Spanish: Placa Scotia) is a tectonic plate on the edge of the South Atlantic and Southern Ocean. Thought to have formed during the early Eocene with the opening of the Drake Passage that separates South America from Antarctica, [2] it is a minor plate whose movement is largely controlled by the two major plates that surround it: the South American Plate Type: Minor.

The trench-pulling effect of the north dipping subduction, which developed along the new continental margin caused rifting, creating the back-arc basin as well as transfer of plates from Gondwana to Laurasia. The present authors applied this model to the southern margin of Laurussia during Paleozoic by: Most of the existing plate tectonic reconstructions (e.g., Klitgord and Schouten, ) show a single salt basin between Nova Scotia and Morocco during the Late Triassic.

On the basis of the regional seismic data sets presented in this paper, the Late Triassic to Early Jurassic salt basins of Nova Scotia and Morocco were separated by a regional. The White Rock Formation in the Yarmouth area of the Meguma terrane of southern Nova Scotia consists mainly of mafic tuffaceous rocks with less abundant mafic flows, epiclastic and clastic sedimentary rocks, and minor intermediate and felsic crystal by: It separates the Meguma Terrane of southern Nova Scotia from the Avalon Terrane to the north.

These terranes are distinct tectonic and lithological entities in the Appalachian Orogen. Two areas at either end of this fault system have been examined in detail to determine the sense and history of offset along by: The Sydney Basin covers a large offshore area south of Newfoundland, with a well-exposed outcrop belt on Cape Breton Island.

The geological history of the poorly known offshore area is interpreted using an industry seismic grid and Lithoprobe line   I picked it up because I have family now living on South Mountain in Nova Scotia, and this case from the s brought notoriety to the area. The book gives an interesting history of the place and of the dissident Puritan families who settled there in the hills in the 18th century, remained insular, and, for generations, poor and poorly educated/5.

A revised plate reconstruction of minimum closure (i.e., at final separation), shows similar regional scale transitions along both the Nova Scotian and Moroccan margins.

The southern transition off Nova Scotia occurs at a significant change in the character of the ECMA and the southern limit of the Morocco Salt Basin.
