Abstract

Over 70% of the North American Cordillera is made up of 'suspect terranes'. Many of these geological provinces are certainly allochthonous to the North American continent and seem to have been swept from far reaches of the Pacific Ocean before collision and accretion into the Cordilleran margin mostly in Mesozoic to early Cenozoic time. ?? 1980 Nature Publishing Group.
