    The Huronian sequence is ab m thick in the Espanola-Sudbury area. Current stratigraphic usage is shown in Figure 2. This excursion will give us the opportunity to examine the Mississagi, Bruce, Espanola, Serpent, Gowganda, and Lorraine formation. Part of the Huronian succession is cyclical. • Stratigraphic sequence breakdown and depositional environment in wells The stratigraphic sequence breakdown was determined in except on Banquereau C21, Thebaud I93 and Venture B For these three wells, the stratigraphic breakdown was performed by correlation with nearby wells (Figure 1; PL. and ).

    environments in the broad, theoretical sense, describing them in terms of strandline, paludal, nearshore, marine, or fluvial depositional settings, but specific facies and subfacies were seldom described. Even in studies assoc­ iating stratigraphic units with specific depositional environments, criteria for their recognition were not included. deposition, and are superbly exposed in a complex of canyons and cliffs stretching from the Wasatch Plateau in central Utah to the eastern Book Cliffs in western Colorado (Fig. 1). The exceptional quality of the Wasatch Plateau outcrop has given rise to a plethora of stratigraphic studies and serves as a .

    Sequence stratigraphy is a phrase used to indicate a method for describing the depositional environment of a sequence of rocks. The terms stratigraphic unit, genetic unit, or genetic increment of strata (GIS) are used to describe the presence of a sedimentary structure. Transitional Environments: Depositional environments that are influenced both by sea water, fresh, water, and often subaerial exposure. Effectively includes everything terrestrial along a coast and the shallowest portion of the marine shelf. These intergrade, but for simplicity we recognize four major transitional environments.

The depositional environment of the Mississagi Formation has been ascribed variously to fluvial, shallow-water, fluvial-deltaic and marine envi- ronments. The first detailed investigation of the formation (McDowell ), undertaken in the El- liot Lake - Blind River area, indicated deposition in a fluvial environment.

The Mississagi Formation is a thick (up to km) Proterozoic arenite sequence that forms part of the Huronian (lower Aphebian) succession of the north shore of Lake Huron, Ontario. The Mississagi Formation is a thick (up to km) Proterozoic arenite sequence that forms part of the Huronian (lower Aphebian) succession of the north shore of Lake Huron, formation is characterized by planar and to a lesser extent trough cross-stratified medium to coarse feldspathic arenites, with only minor amounts of argillite and by: Sedimentary rocks that cap the oceanic Cretaceous to Holocene Kerguelen Plateau are a direct analogue for the depositional environments, sediment source rocks, and drowning events that define the stratigraphy of the Mesoarchean successions studied here.
