This paper summarizes the outcrop and subsurface expressions of the Ordovician Taconic unconformity and the overlying Silurian molasse in the Green Pond syncline (GPS), an elongate belt of down-faulted Lower and Middle Paleozoic rocks in the New Jersey (NJ) Highlands and bordering the New York (NY) Hudson Highlands on the west (Figure 1).

The Taconic Mountains or Taconic Range (/ t ə ˈ k ɒ n ɪ k /) are a range of the Appalachian Mountains, running along the eastern border of New York State and adjacent New England from northwest Connecticut to western Massachusetts, north to central western Vermont.A physiographic region of the larger New England province, the range includes notable summits, including its high point, 3, Parent range: Appalachian Mountains.

The counties through which the Taconic rocks pass are Westchester, Columbia, Rensselaer, and Washington ; and after pass ing out of the State they are found stretching through the whole length of Vermont, and into Canada as far north as Quebec.

It is, however, in Massachusetts, in the county of Berkshire, that we find Lower Silurian." 5. Geology was first studied by Ancient Greek philosophers.

Taconic orogeny, first of three mountain-building events forming the Appalachian Mountains in eastern North America, the Acadian and Alleghenian orogenies being the second and third events, respectively.

Originally viewed as a single event, the Taconic orogeny is now known to consist of at least three episodes. The first took place in the Early Ordovician Epoch near Maine and Newfoundland.

The Silurian fauna, of lower diversity than the Ordovician fauna, is representative of the Distomodus staurognathoides and Pterospathodus amorphogna-thoides zones.
