    The Great Basin of Utah and Nevada in south-western USA is a vast, arid landscape with hot summers and snowy winters. Its tectonic framework, a Basin-and-Range extension formed during Neogene times, was superimposed on Palaeozoic-Mesozoic sedimentary rocks. Analysis of well core and cuttings from the Black Warrior Basin in Mississippi reveals the presence of a Middle Ordovician (Whiterockian) erosional unconformity interpreted to be equivalent to the well-known Knox-Beekmantown unconformity in eastern North America. The unconformity occurs at the top of a peritidal dolostone unit known informally as the upper dolostone, whose stratigraphic.

    Ordovician Period - Ordovician Period - Regional extinctions within the Ordovician: In addition to this mass extinction, smaller-scale or background extinctions occurred during the Ordovician Period. Most of these are poorly understood, but one that has been studied occurred in the eastern United States during the early Late Ordovician Epoch. The Ordovician reefs of the Yijianfang and Lianglitag formations in the Bachu area were cited by Webby as being problematical receptaculitacean Calathium microbial reefs of the third stage and algal microbial reefs of the lower Caradocian, et al.() biostratigraphically dated the formations and recognized three reef‐building episodes of the Lianglitag FormationCited by: 5.

The Black Warrior basin of Mississippi and Alabama is a potentially large oil and gas province with numerous possible reservoir units. Oil and gas have been, or presently are, produced from the Cambro-Ordovician, Ordovician, Mississippian, and Pennsylvanian in the Black Warrior basin.

The Ordovician radiation, or the great Ordovician biodiversification event (GOBE), was an evolutionary radiation of animal life throughout the Ordovician period, 40 million years after the Cambrian explosion, whereby the distinctive Cambrian fauna fizzled out to be replaced with a Paleozoic fauna rich in suspension feeder and pelagic animals.

It followed a series of Cambrian–Ordovician. the Great Basin and Appalachians, and in South America, in the Argentinean Precordillera. In Kazakhstan/Siberia work is still hampered by lack of funding support, but we now have active support biodiversity patterns in all the main taxonomic groups through Ordovician time.

The depositional setting of the Great Basin region during the Early Ordovician is interpreted to have been a carbonate ramp with mixed siliciclastic and carbonate sedimentation that today comprises a 1–2 km thick succession known as the Pogonip Group (Ross et al., ).In the Shingle Pass section the Pogonip Group from base to top is composed of the House Formation, Parker Spring Formation Cited by: (shelved 1 time as great-basin) avg rating — 4, ratings — published   The Michigan Basin is one of the world’s important sedimentary basins that contains significant quantities of evaporites.
