About this book The chapters in Paleontology and Geology of the Martinsburg, Shawangunk, Onondaga, and Hornerstown Formations (Northeastern United States) with Some Field Guides will cover the paleontology and geology of some important rock formations (Paleozoic and Paleogene) in the northeastern United States.

The Middle Silurian Shawangunk Formation near New Paltz, New York, is an important ridge-maker that extends toward the southwest into Pennsylvania. Recently discovered rare trace fossils in the Shawangunk will be discussed along with the depositional environment of the conglomerate.

In the original Lenape, the word is tri-syllabic, Sha-wan-gun, although in an occasional 18th-century deed it is written with a fourth syllable.

The Shawangunk Preserve is a acre Deep Ecology Learning Center and Preserve located in the Adirondack Foothills of central New York. The purpose of the Preserve is to perpetually preserve and protect the natural ecosystems of the lands included in the Preserve from hunting, trapping, logging, recreational vehicles or any major alteration.

Abstract. The Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area (DEWA) contains a rich geologic and cultural history within acre boundary. Following the b. ridge-making Shawangunk-Kittatinny Formation of Early Silurian age. This formation is part of an extensive sheet of coarse sand that spread westward from the Appalachians after the Taconic orogeny.

Along the northwest side of the Appalachian Great Valley, this formation forms a wall-like ridge in which the strata dip to the NW (Figure 4). We drove 44 55 through the Shawangunk Mountains, stopping to hike at Minnewaska State Park. The drive was windy but relaxing. Great views with lots of pull over areas to get out and stretch and take pics.5/5(39).

The main description of the Shawangunk formation is contained in the chapter by Bradford Willard on the water gaps and wind gaps of the region and, therefore, the discussion here is brief.

Lithologic characteristics.-The Shawangunk deposits are readily distinguishable from those of any of the other formations of the region.

Of particular interest is the divergence in strike between these beds and beds in the Shawangunk Formation immediately to the north.

/ THE SHAWANGUNK FORMATION (UPPER ORDOVICIAN. TO MIDDLE SILURIAN) IN EASTERN. The ridge-forming bedrock, Shawangunk Conglomerate, is resistant to erosion but has been faulted and jointed through plate tectonics. Glaciations wore away bedrock around the conglomerate, shaping cliffs, scooping out mountaintop "sky lakes," and forming waterfalls and ice caves.

The Middle Silurian Shawangunk Formation near New Paltz, New York, is an important ridge-maker that extends toward the southwest into Pennsylvania. Recently discovered rare trace fossils in the Shawangunk will be discussed along with the depositional environment of the conglomerate.
