Central Virginia is positioned in the direction of the southern finish of the valuable component of the Appalachian orogen. This orogen extends from Alabama to Newfoundland, alongside the jap margin of North the United States, determine l-IA. The orogen is a domestically identifiable unit of a bigger cellular belt, now disrupted, along with the Caledonides of the British Isles and Scandinavia, and the Mauretanides of West Africa. A usually approved version for the evolution of the Appalachian orogen locations it in the extensive context of the hole and shutting of the past due Precambrian-Paleozoic Iapetus Ocean. the inner components of the orogen seem to be a mosaic of accreted suspect terranes (Williams and Hatcher, 1983).
