Record #161349:

Arctic-Alaska rotation hypothesis revisited / J.F. Sweeney.

Title: Arctic-Alaska rotation hypothesis revisited / J.F. Sweeney.
Author(s): Sweeney, J. F.
Date: 2002.
Publisher: Bad Durkheim, Germany: POLLICHIA-Museum
In: Proceedings of the 4th International POLLICHIA Symposium 24-26 June 2001 : Perspectives of Modern Polar Research and 175th Anniversary of Georg von Neumayer. (2002.),
Abstract: Suggests that differences in pre-Mississippian rocks across restored boundary between Alaska and Canada can be explained if Arctic-Alaska terrane is placed near Ellesmere Island and Greenland in early Paleozoic time. In late Silurian to Devonian, may have been one of many terranes docking with northernmost Ellesmere Island. In late Devonian to early Mississippian time, it may have been sinistrally displaced 1,500 km or more along polar margin of Laurentia when Siberia collided with what is now northeastern North America.
