      Nova Scotia Dinosaur bones found in Bay of Fundy cliffs Experts find some of Canada's oldest dinosaur bones embedded in red sandstone on the northern shore of Nova Scotia. A Plate Tectonics Flip Book Around million years ago, Pangaea began to break up. The breakup resulted in two landmasses: Laurasia, the northern group of continents, and Gondwanaland, the southern group of continents; Gondwanaland included South America, Antarctica, Australia, Africa, and . Southern Nova Scotia is the only piece of Meguma terrane anywhere on the planet. The Avalon terrane is bigger and very fragmented. Pieces of it are recognized from Connecticut all the way to Newfoundland and across the Atlantic Ocean into the UK and as far as Poland (the Atlantic Ocean didn’t exist yet when the Avalon terrane docked on to the.

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 Cited by: changes wrought by plate tectonics. The Cambrian fossils of Nova Scotia are distinctly different from those farther northwest.

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.

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:   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. Southern Nova Scotia or the South Shore is a region of Nova Scotia, area has no formal identity and is variously defined by geographic, county and other political boundaries.

Statistics Canada, defines Southern Nova Scotia as an economic region, composed of Lunenburg County, Queens County, Shelburne County, Yarmouth County, and Digby es: Lunenburg County, Queens. 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:   Sandra Barr is a faculty member in the Department of Earth and Environmental Science at Acadia University in Wolfville.

Martha Hickman Hild has a PhD in Earth Sciences and is a member of the American 4/4(7). The relief and geophysical characteristics of the sea floor in the Drake Passage-Scotia Sea zone have been studied quite well in general.

The oceanic floor within this zone is usually considered as a collage of small fragments of the continental bridge and of young oceanic plates formed by spreading under the large-scale motions of large lithospheric by: 2.

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.

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: 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.

Study of the tectonic development of the Scotia Sea region started with basic lithological and structural studies of outcrop geology in Tierra del Fuego and the Antarctic Peninsula. To nineteenth- and early twentieth-century geologists, the results of these studies suggested the presence of a submerged orocline running around the margins of the Cited by:   The southern and southwestern parts of Nova Scotia were regionally metamorphosed during the Devonian Acadian Orogeny (around Ma), when a relatively small continental block (the Meguma Terrane [1]) was pushed up against the existing eastern margin of North America.

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 approximatelykm of the basin lies on the present-day continental shelf in water depths.

The Scotia Plate 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, it is a minor plate whose movement is largely controlled by the two major plates that surround it: the South American Plate and Antarctic Plate.
