The Appalachians are a Paleozoic orogen that formed in a complete Wilson cycle along the eastern Laurentian margin following the breakup of supercontinent Rodinia and the coalescence of all of the continents to form supercontinent Pangea.

The Appalachian Wilson cycle. Geologic cross section D–D′ is the second in a series of cross sections constructed by the U.S. Geological Survey to document and improve understanding of the geologic framework and petroleum systems of the Appalachian basin.

Cross section. Geologic cross section C-C' is the third in a series of cross sections constructed by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to document and improve understanding of the geologic framework and petroleum systems of the Appalachian basin.

This product (U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Map ) consists of a geologic map of the Southern Appalachian Mountains overlain on a shaded-relief background.

The map area includes parts of southern Virginia, eastern West Virginia and Tennessee, western North and South Carolina, northern Georgia and northeastern Alabama.

The Appalachian orogen (Fig. 1, Fig. 2) formed along the eastern margin of the North American craton (Laurentia) as the result of a complex series of Paleozoic tectonic events (), including collisions with exotic terranes, Africa (Gondwana), and Europe (Baltica).This orogen Cited by: Geological Outcrop Maps in the Appalachian Orogen Vermont, S.

The Blue Ridge physiographic province is a high, mountainous area. The Appalachian chapters synthesize the geologic development of the orogen by tectonostratigraphic intervals (pre-orogenic, Taconic, Acadian, Alleghanian, and post-Alleghanian), and also treat Paleozoic paleontologic control, regional geophysics, thermal history of the crystalline terranes, parts of the orogen buried beneath the Atlantic and eastern Gulf coastal plains.

A discussion of North American geology can also include other continental plates including the Cocos and Juan de Fuca plates being subducted beneath western North America.

A portion of. 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.
