The purpose of this chapter is to offer a succinct review of the Phanerozoic history of the North American continent, in order to provide a framework within which to evaluate the details of the individual chapters that comprise the remainder of the book.

The 'sedimentary cover' refers to the stratified rocks of youngest Proterozoic and Phanerozoic age that rest upon the largely crystalline basement rocks of the continental interior.

This volume presents data and interpretations of the geophysics of the craton and summarizes the craton's tectonic evolution. The fault zones strike generally northwest and northeast, and commonly display mutually offsetting relationships. The oldest faults are in the central part of the North American craton (northern Midcontinent) and were initiated about Ga.

The fault zones were reactivated episodically through Proterozoic and Phanerozoic time. Cretaceous rocks of the Western Interior Basin. In: Sloss, L.L.
