Abstract (type = abstract)
This thesis presents geochronological, structural and geophysical evidence of a complex tectonic history of northeastern North America in a geologic window from the Permian to Recent times, spanning the beginning of rifting of supercontinent Pangea until the current passive margin stage. 40Ar/39Ar geochronology on mafic and felsic sheet intrusions from New England suggests a high sensitivity of the method to a fine crystalline texture, excess argon from Paleozoic crustal rocks, and argon loss from subsequent thermal events. Before the widely recognized ~201 Ma Central Atlantic Magmatic Province, magmatic events occurred at ~271 Ma, ~247 Ma and ~220 Ma. The combination of these and previously published ages with structural data of sheet intrusions and faults allowed dating and characterization of the stress/strain state that resulted from the interaction of magmatism and crustal deformation. Consequently, the data suggest a shift from NW-SE extension before and during rifting, to NE-SW extension and strike-slip regimes after rifting. Seismic-reflection data, well-log data and recent seismic activity provide evidence of such late deformation; however, channel fills of glacial origin could create artifacts in the geophysical data that obscure the true deformation.
