      Following the publication of Charles Darwin’s book The Origin of Species after years of intensive field research looking in the fossil record for missing links that would serve as the transitional intermediate precursors needed in the Precambrian rock strata leading-up to the Cambrian Explosion of million years ago to support the gradualism of Darwinian.

by: 8. Cambrian Period - Cambrian Period - Cambrian rocks: Cambrian rocks have a special biological significance, because they are the earliest to contain diverse fossils of animals. These rocks also include the first appearances of most animal phyla that have fossil records. Cambrian evolution produced such an extraordinary array of new body plans that this event has been referred to as the Cambrian.

Sandstone consists of hardened layers of sand. Shale forms from layers of clay or mud. Rocks such as sand­ stone and shale are called clastic rocks. Other sedimentary rocks include carbonate rocks, such as lime stone and dolomite, which are formed of calcium.

Pennsylvania has a great diversity of bedrock that is at or near the surface. In the southeastern part of the state, there are crystalline (igneous and metamorphic) rocks.

They are bordered to the northwest by a 3- to mile-wide band of mostly red sedimentary rocks having multiple intrusions of the igneous rock diabase. When reproducing material from this book, please cite the source as follows: Barnes, J.

Rocks that characterize this region include: limestone, dolomite, slate, shale, sandstone, siltstone, and some scattered basalt. Almost all of the rocks in the Great Valley in Pennsylvania are Ordovician in age and were deposited during a quiet period before the Taconic orogeny.

The oldest Cambrian sedimentary rocks are only million years old. This suggests that a long period of weathering and erosion strongly modified the Precambrian surface after emplacement of the intrusive igneous rocks and eruption of volcanic rocks.

The interval was a time of intense diversification (an increase in the number of species) of marine animal life in what became known as the Ordovician radiation. Lewis Rocks is a series of rocky outcrops called erosional remnants, consisting of quartzite layers and gneiss that date back to the Cambrian age.

A large percentage of the rocky outcrops across Pennsylvania are composed of this material%(12). The passage from Cambrian to Ordovician was gradual, without any marked physical break.

Only where the Upper Cambrian is sandy, as in New York, is there a decided change in the character of sedimentation. In the latter part of the Cambrian a great inland sea had been established over what is now the Mississippi valley and, with frequent fluctuations in depth and modifications in form, it was.

very old rocks in Pennsylvania—the ones that have seen the most his-tory and that have the most to tell us. They can be found near the sur-face in the southeastern part of the state and at great depth anywhere in Pennsylvania.

They are rocks that have been changed from their original forms, usually as a result of in-tense heat, pressure, or both. Pre-Cambrian Rocks of the Western Piedmont of Maryland ANNA I. JONAS. ANNA I.

The Cambrian period, the first in the Paleozoic era, spans the time between and million years ago. During what is termed the Cambrian Explosion, living thiungs developed hard structures.

The presence of these structures greatly enhanced the chance of an organism becoming a fossil. This publication presents a description of wells in New York State and adjacent parts of Pennsylvania. Correlations with surface exposures are established.
