Talk:Geology of the Appalachians

Untitled[edit]

This article seems to be about the geology of the Appalachians, rather than a general geography of the Eastern US. I propose moving this to Geology of the Appalachians. -- hike395 13:55, 2 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Something missing here[edit]

This is a long wordy outdated 1911 description. Not one mention of plate tectonics or even a link to Appalachian orogeny! The short section on geology in the Appalachian Mountains is more informative. A massive rewrite is needed, the mountains haven't changed much since 1911, but the understanding of geology sure has. -Vsmith 01:46, 27 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Which 1911 article is this from? I can't find it. Thanks! -- hike395 05:03, 27 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Don't know which one. The style seemed to fit and see this [1] edit from Feb. 2003. -Vsmith 28 June 2005 03:46 (UTC)
OK. As a substitute, how about Talk:Geology of the Appalachians/restart? I wikified a USGS web page, so it should be up-to-date. I'm not enough of an expert to go into more detail, especially on the regional geology. Should we move this restart page to the main page? -- hike395 28 June 2005 05:01 (UTC)

If 1911 geology is bad, should we just delete the rest of the article (below the introduction)? -- hike395 04:12, 15 November 2005 (UTC)

I dont see how any one could defend keeping the 1911 material, not unless its been vetted by an expert and brought up to modern standards. Based on the comments by Vsmith above, its not been done. --Stbalbach 04:54, 15 November 2005 (UTC)

Appalachian Basin[edit]

Appalachian Basin redirects to this article. That term is usually associated with coal, oil and gas in shale discussions. There's no mention in the article about minerals and gas in this article.Americasroof (talk) 15:57, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
