    Silurian Period - Silurian Period - Silurian geology: Silurian formations widely scattered around the world display a wealth of natural beauty. Niagara Falls and the km (7-mile) Niagara Gorge on the Canadian-U.S. border are products of erosion that continue to be sculpted by rushing waters undercutting the soft shale beneath a ledge of more-resistant Silurian dolomite. Paleontology and geology. The Precambrian: Some of the oldest rocks in North America are exposed in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Among these are lightly metamorphosed sedimentary rocks that contain some of the oldest fossil evidence of complex life, including filamentous algae.. The Paleozoic: Paleozoic rocks are well represented in Michigan. This part of North America lay near the equator in.

Here, evaporites are found in deposits of Ordovician through Mississippian age rocks; however, most of the thick evaporite accumulations occur in Silurian and Devonian intervals. Ordovician material from the Platteville Formation (Sandbian) of southern Wisconsin and Big Hill Formation (Katian) of northern Michigan is described that provides novel information about the.

In the Southern Peninsula of Michigan the known thickness of Upper Ordovician rocks ranges from feet in western Michigan to feet in eastern Michigan, ear the outcrop area in the Northern Peninsula the thickness of the Upper Ordovician rocks is feet.

The Silurian (/ s ɪ ˈ lj ʊər. ən, s aɪ-/ sih-LYOOR-ee-ən, sy-) is a geologic period and system spanning million years from the end of the Ordovician Period, at million years ago (), to the beginning of the Devonian Period, Mya.

The Silurian is the shortest period of the Paleozoic with other geologic periods, the rock beds that define the period's start and end. Northern Peninsula is underlain by rocks of Precambrian and Cambrian age. In contrast, underlying rocks of the eastern Northern Peninsula and the entire Southern Peninsula are younger (Ordovician to Pennsylvanian) in age.

In addition to this broad split, Michigan geology also is characterized by a major horizontal break-bedrock geology vs. Exception: The Niagaran escarpment, the boundary between soft Ordovician.

THE MICHIGAN BASIN The Michigan basin is a relatively shallow intracratonic basin which includes the Southern Peninsula, the Northern Peninsula, and portions of Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Ontario, Canada which are contiguous to Michigan. After about 60 million years, warm, shallow seas came down again from the Arctic and covered Michigan during the Silurian period.

At this time the land would have been in a subtropical climate that gave rise to large coral reefs across the state. Fossil findings show that the largest and oldest reef extends through the center of the Upper.

These periods are the Cambrian, Ordovician, Silurian, Devonian, Mississippian, Pennsylvanian, and the Permian. The general structure of the basin is shown below. As the map sequence below shows, the Michigan basin began to form about million years ago, during the early Ordovician.
