Head of title: Geological Survey of Canada. The Atlantic-type continental margin of eastern Canada is underlain by a series of Mesozoic-Cenozoic sedimentary basins separated by basement highs or areas of thinner sediments. Regional and/or salt tectonics have structured the Mesozoic sequence, which is masked by a less-deformed wedge of prograding uppermost Cretaceous and Cenozoic sediments.

"The Geology of the Continental Margin of Eastern Canada" will be the second volume in the Geology of Canada Series and one of the 28 volumes in the Decade of North American Geology.

The Atlantic‐type continental margins off eastern Canada exhibit both rifted and transform tectonic styles and range in age from Jurassic to Tertiary. The plate motions responsible for these margins involved the separation of four major plates from North America: the African plate in the Jurassic, the Iberian plate in the Cretaceous, and the European and Greenland plates in the late Cretaceous and early by: Written in the publication presents interpretations of then-new data bearing on the geology and geophysics of continental margins.

The oldest rocks are preserved in the stable Archean crustal blocks of which the largest include the Superior, Slave, Hearne and North Atlantic cratons. These blocks are also the repository for much of Canada’s gold, copper, iron, zinc and diamonds. Canada’s eastern continental margin extends over some 40 degrees of latitude from Georges Bank to Ellesmere Island.
