Sediment is solid material that is moved and deposited in a new location. Sediment can consist of rocks and minerals, as well as the remains of plants and animals. It can be as small as a grain of sand or as large as a boulder. Sediment moves from one place to another through the process of n is the removal and transportation of rock or soil. The Petitcodiac River / p ɛ t i ˈ k oʊ d i. æ k / (), known informally as the Chocolate River, is a river in south-eastern New Brunswick, river has a meander length of 79 kilometres (49 miles) and is located in Westmorland, Albert, and Kings counties, draining a watershed area of about 2, square kilometres ( sq mi). The watershed features valleys, ridges, and rolling hills. Study Sites. Sediment samples were collected during a field trip in from 23 lakes situated in the Mazurskie and Suwalskie Lakelands (Fig. 1).The lakes were selected on the basis of two main criteria: (1) lack of significant local sources of pollution in the lake surroundings and (2) similar morphometric features, i.e., a small surface area and relatively great depth. PENNSYLVANIAN DELTAIC SEDIMENTATION IN GRAND LEDGE, MICHIGAN Jeffrey R. Martin, M.S. Western Michigan University, Pennsylvanian outcrops along the Michigan Basin's southern / margin are composed of fluvial-deltaic and marine shelf sediments. Constructive deltaic facies include point-bar sandstones displaying.

This paper deals with the deposits of the Cumberland sub-basin of northern Nova Scotia and southern New Brunswick (Fig. 1B), which lay in the western part, and judging from regional paleoflow data.

Phase two, which included the final assembly of Pangea, extended through the Pennsylvanian and Permian, and continued into the Triassic. Most of the cratonic basins became inactive as new stresses were imposed on the continent related to Pangean assembly. The greater Appalachian foreland basin developed adjacent to the Appalachian orogen.

Near Saint John in southern New Brunswick (Fig. 2A), compression was manifest as a series of small, elongate, fault-bounded depocentres (Rast et al., ) that contain relatively thin Lower Pennsylvanian successions, some showing evidence of syndepositional faulting (Plint, ).

Deposition in the coastal region is related to the development of the Baltimore Canyon Trough, which took place during the postrift phase of the opening of the Atlantic Ocean.

The coastal plain is composed of unconsolidated and semi-consolidated sediments of Cretaceous and Cenozoic age. Sediments. Geochemistry Middle Pennsylvanian age coal beds from new outcrop exposures located along the northwest margin of the Eastern Kentucky Coal Field were sampled and analysed.

As noted above, a phase of extension in the Carboniferous triggered the development of Sverdrup Basin in the Canadian Arctic, on the northern margin of the continent.

Carbonate and evaporite sedimentation dominated in this basin, together with a belt of marginal clastics, until the Permian, after which, sedimentation became predominantly. Ronald C.

Northeasterly source directions are also indicated for the basal Pennsylvanian sediments of the Michigan Basin and adjacent portions of the Appalachian Basin.

Hence, excluding the western shelf area of the Eastern Interior Basin, the craton in the north-central. to the northeast. Pennsylvanian sedimentation took place in an elongate basin, aligned northeast to south­ west, receiving sediments from all directions except the west and southwest.

A rapidly subsiding geosyn­ clinal trough to the southeast graded into an epicon­ tinental shelf to the northwest (Figure ). During Pennsylvanian time, the central Colorado basin was an elongate, narrow, northwest-southeast- oriented feature.

The Pennsylvanian basin fill is as thick as 3, m (10, ft) (Mallory, ; DeVoto, ). Fault zones are thought to have formed the eastern margin of the basin. These faults were active during Laramide (early.

Sedimentary petrology was used in this provenance study to map regional mineral associations and to indicate the composition and tectonic states of their source areas. Quantitative estimates of tourmaline roundness and varieties of quartz were the primary basis for recognizing two regional mineral associations.

The statistical significance of quartz varieties and tourmaline roundness was. Equivalent units are well exposed along the western coast of Cape Breton Island, but the thickest and best exposures occur in the Cumberland Basin of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, exposed along the shores of Chignecto Bay, the inner, northern arm of the Bay of Fundy (Fig.

The Paleozoic spread of plants, beginning in the Ordovician and reaching a phase of accelerated diversity and dispersal in the Early Devonian, was a critical episode in Earth hist. This basin defines a large and complex tectonic depression of Late Paleozoic age, encompassing most of eastern New Brunswick, northern Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and the offshore area that.

The geology of Massachusetts includes numerous units of volcanic, intrusive igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks formed within the last billion years. The oldest formations are gneiss rocks in the Berkshires, which were metamorphosed from older rocks during the Proterozoic Grenville orogeny as the proto-North American continent Laurentia collided against proto-South America.

Introduction. Interest in the interactions between vegetation and fluvial dynamics has grown considerably in the past decades (Gurnell et al., ) and the effects of vegetation are increasingly being incorporated into fluvial studies (Gibling et al., ; Fielding et al., ; Gibling & Davies, ).Recent advances have occurred in the study of landforms and sedimentary processes.

These muddy sediments were derived from erosion of an uplift in the northern Appalachian region. This shale and some sandstone accumulated to thicknesses totaling over m in the Michigan Basin. So, just how thick are the Devonian sediments. The map below shows the thicknesses of sediments (in feet) deposited during the Devonian.

Pennsylvanian-Permian strata in Oklahoma were deposited in environments which ranged from deep marine to alluvial fan.
