Tectonic Evolution of the Southern Lincoln Massif, Central Vermont: A Preliminary Model for the Role of 'Rigid' Basement in Taconian Orogenesis

Tectonic Evolution of The Southern Lincoln Massif, Central Vermont: A Preliminary Model For The Role of 'rigid' Basement in Taconian Orogenesis. A retrodeformed cross-section suggests an overall tectonic shortening across the massif of 58 percent, or about 21 km. The marked similarities, however, between the eastern and western rift-elastic cover sequences, coupled with structural evidence, argue that the strain represents primarily flattening and internal imbrication of a single lithologic package, rather than juxtaposition of two very discrete packages.
