Résumé(disponible en anglais seulement)
This field trip guidebook presents a synthesis of the lower to middle Paleozoic stratigraphic architecture and paleogeographic scenarios for the sedimentary basins in southern Québec. The field trip will provide an opportunity to examine the Upper Ordovician Utica Shale and Lorraine Group flysch that were deposited in the Taconian foreland basin of southern Quebec. Cores presenting some aspects of the lateral variability of the internal facies architecture of the Utica will be examined during the first day whereas visits to key outcrops located in the Québec City area are planned during the second day to look at the overall Upper Ordovician stratigraphic architecture and primary facies distribution.
