North Sea Chalk The North Sea'basin is a large epicontinental basin which contains sediments ranging from Cretaceous to Recent age. Within this area the Central Graben is a major NW-SE trending area of rifting and subsidence which was active through Mesozoic times (see Fig. 5). In contrast, the North American Jurassic record is the poorest of the Mesozoic, with few outcrops at the surface. [9] Though the epicontinental Sundance Sea left marine deposits in parts of the northern plains of the United States and Canada during the late Jurassic, most exposed sediments from this period are continental, such as the alluvial.

The Western Interior Seaway (also called the Cretaceous Seaway, the Niobraran Sea, the North American Inland Sea, and the Western Interior Sea) was a large inland sea that existed during the mid- to late Cretaceous period as well as the very early Paleogene, splitting the continent of North America into two landmasses, Laramidia to the west and Appalachia to the east.

The Jurassic (/ dʒ ʊ ˈ r æ s. s ɪ k / juu-RASS-ik; from the Jura Mountains) is a geologic period and system that spanned 56 million years from the end of the Triassic Period million years ago to the beginning of the Cretaceous Period Mya.

The Jurassic constitutes the middle period of the Mesozoic Era, also known as the Age of start.

The Yellow Sea is a distinct epicontinental sea, characterized by a flat and broad seafloor (Figure ). The western part of the sea includes deltas of the Huanghe River; off the Jiangsu coast with the shallow seafloor (about 50 m) gently sloping eastward.

The eastern part forms numerous islands, estuaries, and tidal flats. Both before and after inclusion of Laurussia in Pangea, the continent was a site of extensive epicontinental, marine, black-shale deposition, but from Pennsylvanian to Jurassic time when North America was an integral part of Pangea, the pattern of black-shale deposition was one of long-term decline.

The Northern North Sea province is dominated by the Viking Graben, which continues into the Sogn Graben towards the north (Fig. ).These grabens are flanked by the East Shetland Basin and the Tampen Spur to the west, and the Horda Platform to the east (Figs. and ).These are Jurassic-Cretaceous features, and the main crustal thinning took place in the late Middle to Late Jurassic.Blakey, Ron C.,Paleogeography and Paleotectonics of the Western Interior Seaway, Jurassic-Cretaceous of North America: AAPG Search and Discovery Article # (Available on-line at ) Global Animation Sample.The Acadian orogeny occurred near the beginning of a major period of mountain building in earth's history lasting for million years.
