      The structure of the Appalachian/Caledonian orogen is described and a new model for its evolution proposed. Data from a seismic profile6 across the Møre Gneiss Region (often called the northwestern basal gneisses of southern Norway) show evidence of P-wave velocity reversal at a depth of about 14 km.

Appalachian orogenic belt, an old mountain range that extends for more than 3, km (1, miles) along the eastern margin of North America from Alabama in the southern United States to Newfoundland, Canada, in the north.

The geosynclinal theory of mountain building was first worked out in the Appalachians by James Dana and James Hall in the late 19th century; today a plate tectonic. Miogeoclines and suspect terranes of the Caledonian–Appalachian Orogen: tectonic patterns in the North Atlantic region.

The second hypothesis is preferred here, implying that the structure and composition of the old orogen played a major role in the Neoproterozoic and Paleozoic evolution: lithospheric inheritance ‘steered’ Caledonian Orogeny. Two different hypotheses also dominate the interpretations of the Caledonide Orogen in the North Atlantic Region.

Westward, the internal margin of the orogen is hidden beneath the thick Mesozoic-Cenozoic deposits of the Mauritania-Senegal coastal basin. Southward, the prolongation of the chain seems to be the Rokelides belt of Sierra Leone (6). A classic example is the U.S. Atlantic margin, where opening of the North Atlantic Ocean began with a continental rifting episode within the late Paleozoic Appalachian-Caledonian orogen (Ziegler, ).

The association between the positions of continental breakup and older orogenic belts is usually attributed to weakening of the lithosphere due.

In North America, Avalonia did not extend south of New England (Cocks et al. ), so the major Palaeozoic orogenic events south of Long Island Sound are related to the convergence of Laurentia and Gondwana, and intervening terranes, and are, therefore, also excluded from the Caledonides.

The Caledonian orogeny was a mountain-building era recorded in the northern parts of Ireland and Britain, the Scandinavian Mountains, Svalbard, eastern Greenland and parts of north-central Europe.

The Caledonian orogeny encompasses events that occurred from the Ordovician to Early Devonian, roughly – million years ago ().It was caused by the closure of the Iapetus Ocean when the. The classical Appalachian, Caledonian, Hercynian, and Mauritanide orogens are now only segments of a once-continuous Paleozoic mountain belt which has been fragmented during Mesozoic-Cenozoic formation of the North Atlantic Ocean.

These segments are major parts of the countries surrounding the North Atlantic - most of which are members of NATO.
