Eastern North the US comprises the vintage Atlantic-type passive continental margin shaped through the breakup of the supercontinent of Pangaea. The Triassic initiation of the breakup used to be marked by means of the formation of rifted crust all alongside the axis of the long run Atlantic, from Greenland to Mexico. In japanese North the USA, 9 significant rift basins, usually half-graben, and a number of other minor basins are uncovered from Nova Scotia to South Carolina, with many extra buried lower than the coastal simple and continental shelf (Figure 1.1). The uncovered rift basins, which heavily stick with the craze of the Appalachian orogen, jam-packed with millions of meters of continental sediments and basalt flows over a interval of roughly forty five million years. Diabase plutons and dikes, it appears coeval with the basalt flows, broadly intruded and metamorphosed pre-existing strata. The faulted, tilted, and eroded rift strata are termed the Newark Supergroup (Van Houten, 1977; Olsen, 1978; Froelich and Olsen, 1984).
