    The Upper Ordovician–Lower Silurian stratigraphic succession exposed on Anticosti Island did not record the major Taconian compression observed in the nearby Appalachians. It consists mostly of storm-deposited sediments on a carbonate ramp in a shallow epeiric sea ( Cited by: Catalogues of the Silurian fossils of the island of Anticosti [electronic resource]: with descriptions of some new genera and species / (Montreal: Dawson Bros., ), by E.

I spent a week of exploring the town of Port Menier at one end of the island, and fly fishing for salmon at the Jupiter Lodge.

Strata of the Anticosti Basin record the development of a storm-dominated tropical carbonate ramp. These strata host the well-known Hirnantian positive carbon isotope excursion, which at-tains maximum values of ~‰ in carbonate carbon of the Laframboise Member.

New fossils found from Anticosti Island in Quebec, Canada. Methods: New fossils of poorly understood echinoderm (relatives of sea stars) fossils discovered from Upper Ordovician ( million years ago) rocks were analyzed and compared with middle Silurian ( million years ago) to better understand biogeographic and evolutionary trends.

Reefs of the Lower Silurian Chicotte Formation are the largest and most faunally diverse known on Anticosti Island, Quebec. They reach up to 25 m in thickness and m in diameter and are present predominantly at two intervals, forming a lower and upper reef cluster.

Remnants of bioherms are represented on the present-day wave-cut terrace as 60 to m diameter, subcircular erosional Cited by: Located in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Québec, Anticosti Island is over km long and has a maximum width of 56 km, for a total surface area of km 2.

The topography is relatively flat and the mean elevation is only m. The bedrock is formed of limestone from the Silurian and Ordovician eras.
