THE PALEOZOIC AND MESOZOIC ROCKS; A DISCUSSION TO ACCOMPANY THE GEOLOGIC MAP OF THE UNITED STATES By PHILIP B. KING and HELEN M. BEIKMAN ABSTRACT This report deals with the Paleozoic and Mesozoic rocks that are exposed within the area covered by the Geologic Map of the United States and treats them in terms of the map legend.

The Late Paleozoic Alleghanian orogeny along the east coast of North America was the result of a similar mountain building event. If reconstructing the orogeny in North America, Africa would be at top of the landsat image, forming the bulk of the mountains, but sitting on top of the edge of North America. Page - J sec. 34, and there are outcrops of a bed which is reported to be about 8 feet thick in an old test pit near the center of the NE.

The Pilgrim Dolomite is divisible into two main parts: cyclically interbedded dolomitic strata 2- to inch ( cm) thick in the lower part, mainly dolomitic quartz sandstone and sandy dolomite in the upper part. The Red Lion Formation is composed mainly of dolomite;Cited by: 2.

Cross-formational flow associated with the salt-dissolution edge of the Prairie Evaporite Formation has resulted in dissolution features within Devonian formations.
