Neoproterozoic sedimentary basins with glacigenic deposits of the East Greenland Caledonides

Abstract:

Two major Neoproterozoic sedimentary basins that probably formed in response to an early pulse of Iapetan rifting along the Laurentian margin are well exposed in the East Greenland Caledonides. The Hekla Sund Basin is exposed at the northern termination of the East Greenland Caledonides, and it is represented by the Rivieradal and Hagen Fjord Groups, which attain a cumulative thickness of 8-11 km. The evolution of this basin reflects deposition during active rifting and a postrift thermal equ...
