The Appalachians

From studying the sediment deposits at Anticosti Island, to rebuilding the history of one of the most significant mass extinctions (443 million years ago), scientists are piecing together elements that continue to shape this diverse region. Scientists reveal the fractures in this active earthquake zone. The explorations and observations scientists undertake today across the Appalachians will finally make it possible for us to add a few missing pages in the history book of the North American continent.
