    The Silurian, named after the Silures tribe of Wales, begins during the recovery from the two-phased mass extinction that accompanied the pair of major glacial and interglacial events of the early and middle part of the Hirnantian Stage of latest Ordovician. The Global Boundary Stratotype Sections and Points (GSSPs) for the four Silurian series—Llandovery, Wenlock, Ludlow, and Pridoli. The Silurian Shawangunk Formation is a mapped bedrock unit in eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New is named for the Shawangunk Ridge for which it is the dominant rock type. The division of the Shawangunk between the Tuscarora Formation and Clinton Group has not been conclusively determined. The shift of nomenclature currently has the divide between Hawk Mountain and Lehigh Gap.

    The rocks, which are shown in a few quarries and outcrops, are of Upper Silurian age. Silurian strata exist beneath the entire Southern Peninsula, but they are covered by younger Paleozoic deposits and Pleistocene drift. Stratigraphy and correlation of these strata must be deciphered by the study of cuttings and rock cores from deep wells. The rocks of the Salina stage are thickest in New York and Pennsylvania, thinning to the westward. In the Shawangunk Mountains of eastern New York the Salina is represented by thick conglomerates of quartz pebbles, which were formerly referred to the Oneida, but are now known to contain, in interstratified shales, the remarkable Eurypterida of.

Field stratigraphic analysis of the Early and medial Silurian strata of Ontario, New York and Pennsylvania permits recognition of six major sequences, reflecting 3rd-order cycles, in the Niagaran.

The changing patterns and episodic nature of diastrophism, sedimentation, and volcanism from Late Ordovician through Early Devonian time in Australia, New Guinea, and New Zealand is presented with the aid of a correlation chart and two paleogeographic-lithofacies maps for late Llandovery and Ludlow-Pridoli times; such analysis proved impractical for the early Llandovery and Wenlock owing to.

This paper is a comprehensive compilation of information relevant to the correlation of the Chinese Silurian rocks by means both of fossils and physical data available through The number of units reflects the large area of China underlain by Silurian rocks, and the varied environmental regimes affecting their deposition.

The oldest, Tortotubus protuberans, which was discovered in early Silurian-age rocks of New York state, Scotland, and Gotland in Sweden, likely fed on detritus.

Silurian-age decomposers, such as fungi and bacteria, are thought to have helped to stock the soil with nutrients capable of. This event is the Caledonian orogeny, a spate of mountain building that stretched from New York State through conjoined Europe and Greenland to Norway.

At the end of the Silurian, sea levels dropped again, leaving telltale basins of evaporites in a basin extending from Michigan to West Virginia, and the new mountain ranges were rapidly eroded. Correlation of the Silurian and Devonian rocks in New York State (Map Chart Ser., 24).

Silurian Period, in geologic time, the third period of the Paleozoic Era. It began million years ago and ended million years ago, extending from the close of the Ordovician Period to the beginning of the Devonian Period.

During the Silurian, continental elevations were generally much. These and the time-stratigraphic units have been utilized in constructing a correlation chart of the North American Silurian rocks.

Analysis of the distribution of the North American Silurian rocks, their faunas, and their compositional and textural aspects has revealed certain broad patterns.
