The North American Plate from the Arctic Archipelago to the Romanzof Mountains

  • D. K. Norris
  • C. J. Yorath

Abstract

The part of the North American plate under consideration lies north of latitude 68°N and extends from the Coppermine Arch at longitude 120°W to the Romanzof Uplift at longitude 142°W. It embraces portions of Canada’s continental shelf, the Cordilleran Foldbelt, and the Interior Platform of mainland Canada and Banks Island of the Arctic Archipelago. The project area includes segments of several physiographic (after Bostock, 1970) and tectonic (after Norris, D. K., 1973) elements shown in Figs. 1 and 2, respectively.
