The Appalachians are a Paleozoic orogen that formed in a complete Wilson cycle along the eastern Laurentian margin following the breakup of supercontinent Rodinia and the coalescence of all of the continents to form supercontinent Pangea.

Geological Survey (USGS) to document and improve understanding of the geologic framework and petroleum systems of the Appalachian basin. This product (U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Map ) consists of a geologic map of the Southern Appalachian Mountains overlain on a shaded-relief background.

The map area includes parts of southern Virginia, eastern West Virginia and Tennessee, western North and South Carolina, northern Georgia and northeastern Alabama. The Appalachian orogen (Fig.

Appalachian orogenic belt, an old mountain range that extends for more than 3, km (1, miles) along the eastern margin of North America from Alabama in the southern United. The Southern Appalachian Mountains includes the Blue Ridge province and parts of four other physiographic provinces.

The Blue Ridge physiographic province is a high, mountainous area. The Appalachian chapters synthesize the geologic development of the orogen by tectonostratigraphic intervals (pre-orogenic, Taconic, Acadian, Alleghanian, and post-Alleghanian), and also treat Paleozoic paleontologic control, regional geophysics, thermal history of the crystalline terranes, parts of the orogen buried beneath the Atlantic and eastern Gulf coastal plains.

A look at rocks exposed in today's Appalachian Mountains reveals elongate belts of folded and thrust faulted marine sedimentary rocks, volcanic rocks and slivers of ancient ocean floor. The central and southern Appalachians extend from the New York promontory, located near the center and at the narrowest part of the orogen, to Alabama in the south (e.g., Hatcher and.
