The Hettangian is a poorly understood 3 million year time interval following the Triassic-Jurassic mass extinction during which the biosphere struggled to rebuild its diversity. Hettangian ammonite faunas are examined from the two key areas of the terranes of British Columbia, Taseko Lakes and the Queen Charlotte Islands (QCI). In total, 90 different species or taxonomic groups are described Author: Louise M. Longridge.

    In the northern Philippines, allochthonous terranes originate primarily within the arc system, have been translated along it by strike-slip faults, and were emplaced by cessation of that slip. The authors suggest that in the Philippines some originally vertical strike-slip boundaries may have evolved into shallow-dipping sutures marked by fold and thrust systems.

      Allochthonous terranes? Basically a larger scale version of the same thing, with island arcs and microcontinents once spread across half the planet getting welded together above a subduction zone. Allochthonous conjures up all of the things that I find most fascinating about geology.

Considering the allochthonous character of the nappe pile and the strong deformation associated to the Variscan collision, there are problems to identify the original tectonic setting of the terranes and thence, it is difficult to reconstruct the paleogeographic context during the Variscan and pre-Variscan times in by: north, and a polyphase-deformed terrane, the allochthonous Falls River slice, to the south.

The Mindoro Suture, which separates the Mindoro and North Palawan blocks, is a complex structural boundary comprising slices of diverse lithologies separated by steeply dipping, anastomosing faults.
