The geology and graptolite faunas of the Terra Cotta Mountains in south-central Alaska are described. Three new formations of Paleozoic age are named and described; they include graptolitiferous argillaceous rocks, sandstones, and limestones of the Dillinger Terrane.

The structure and tectonics of the mapped area arc also discussed. Ninety-five species of Ordovician and Silurian graptolites. The rocks in the Salina basin area that occupy the stratigraphic interval of the Simpson group of Oklahoma, between the Arbuckle and the Viola, consist of the St.

Peter sandstone and its correlatives, and the overlying Platteville, as restricted by Kay at outcrops in eastern Iowa (, p. In our present interpretation as trace fossils they originated by the spiral displacement of a steeply inclined J- shaped burrow. Therefore one has to break the rock to see the typical spreite structure.

Similar forms occur in the Lower Silurian (Medina Sandstone) of upstate New York (Sarle, ), where whole beds may be fiddled by by: FIGURE!.-Distribution of Upper Ordovician and Silurian strata in Sequatchie Valley and in the Valley and Ridge in Tennessee and adjacent parts of Georgia and Alabama.

The present paper, which includes the most recent data, should be an up to date and comprehensive review of the Ordovician, Silurian and Devonian sedimentary rocks of.

The Ordovician is a period of geological time, approximately to million years ago. Preceded by the Cambrian and followed by the Silurian, it belongs to the Paleozoic Era. The Ordovician was characterised by widespread epicontinental seas, rapid increase in biodiversity and the Hirnantian mass more.

studied a younger sequence of rocks he called Silurian. The controversy centered on the fact that Murchison considered Sedgwick's Upper Cambrian rocks to belong to his Lower Silurian sequence. It wasn't until that another Englishman, Charles Lapworth, settled the problem by placing the controversial beds in a new system, the Ordovician.

Abstract: A multiproxy study on sedimentary rocks spanning the Ordovician-Silurian boundary has been performed on material from the Röstånga-1 core, with the aims to improve the biostratigraphical and sedimentological framework.

Ordovician-Silurian extinction, global extinction event occurring during the Hirnantian Age ( million to million years ago) of the Ordovician Period and the subsequent Rhuddanian Age ( million to million years ago) of the Silurian Period that eliminated an estimated 85 percent of all Ordovician species.

This extinction interval ranks second in severity to the one that.

Lower Ordovician stratigraphy is briefly reviewed. The names Glenogle Shales, Mount Wilson Quartzite, and Skoki Formation are retained. Coverage of the Beaverfoot Formation is restricted to carbonate rocks and includes both Upper Ordovician and Lower Silurian strata.

The terms Wonah Quartzite and Brisco Formation are considered obsolete. A mi-long restored stratigraphic cross section from Medina County, Ohio, through southwestern and south-central Pennsylvania to Hampshire County, W. Va., provides new details on Cambrian and Ordovician stratigraphy in the central Appalachian basin and the structure of underlying Precambrian basement rocks.

The stratigraphic framework of the Cambrian and Ordovician sequence along this cross section and, to a lesser extent, the structure of the underlying block-faulted base­ ment rocks are the main topics of this paper.

Cross section C-C' is the third in a series of restored stratigraphic cross. Ordovician Period - Ordovician Period - Regional extinctions within the Ordovician: In addition to this mass extinction, smaller-scale or background extinctions occurred during the Ordovician Period.

Most of these are poorly understood, but one that has been studied occurred in the eastern United States during the early Late Ordovician Epoch. Notification of new projects (both national and international) and upcoming events (international symposia, conferences and congresses) relevant to the Ordovician System will ensure that these important gatherings are brought to the attention of potential attendees.

He has published widely on Early Palaeozoic brachiopods of Australia and New Zealand, concentrating on those in the Ordovician, with a focus on trimerellide and lingulate brachiopods.
