Located in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Québec, Anticosti Island is over km long and has a maximum width of 56 km, for a total surface area of km 2. The topography is relatively flat and the mean elevation is only m. The bedrock is formed of limestone from the Silurian and Ordovician eras. spanning the Ordovician-Silurian (O-S) boundary is located on Anticosti Island, eastern Canada. Our study is the first one to sample strata superbly exposed at low tide along the west coast of Anticosti Island, thus providing a previously unexploited, nearly complete stratigraphic interval (~ m) at the O-S boundary for δ13 C Cited by: 8.

Barnes Geological Survey of Canada, Booth St, Ottawa, Ontario KIA 0E8, Canada Synopsis Anticosti Island provided the principal alternative boundary stratotype to Dob’s Linn, Scotland, for the base of the Silurian System. Anticosti Island (French: Île d'Anticosti) is an island in the province of Quebec, Canada at the outlet of the Saint Lawrence River into the Gulf of Saint Lawrence, between 49° and 50° N., and between 61° 40' and 64° 30' 7, km 2 (3, sq mi) in size, it is the 90th largest island in the world and 20th largest island in : Minganie.

Reefs of the Lower Silurian Chicotte Formation are the largest and most faunally diverse known on Anticosti Island, Quebec. They reach up to 25 m in thickness and m in diameter and are present predominantly at two intervals, forming a lower and upper reef cluster.

Anticosti Island, Québec, has perhaps the most fossiliferous and complete Llandovery (Early Silurian) sequence in the world.

The undeformed limestones are well exposed and yield extremely well. Uncertainty regarding the Ordovician–Silurian boundary is the result of striking facies changes in this interval across the island from east to west and because many key biostratigraphically important fossil groups are poorly represented in the largely endemic fauna of Anticosti Island (e.g., Barnes ; Zhang and Barnes ; Melchin ).Cited by: 1.

An abundant conodont fauna was recovered from samples taken from the Becscie, Merrimack, and Gun River formations of early Llandovery (Early Silurian) age on Anticosti Island, Québec.

Here Chatterton and Ludvigsen managed to add 32 new species (to the existing 20) and one new genus (to the previous 29) to the island's trilobite trove.

The Ellis Bay Formation on Anticosti Island has long been recognized for the biostratigraphic importance of its latest Ordovician conodont, palynomorph, and shelly fossil assemblages. However, a sparse record of graptolites has made it difficult to correlate these assemblages with the graptolite biozonation.

Restudy of some previously described and examination .Anticosti is a tremendously special, and little known, piece of Canada. I spent a week of exploring the town of Port Menier at one end of the island, and fly fishing for salmon at the Jupiter Lodge. There aren't enough words in my vocabulary to describe the whole 5/5(12).
