Paper Summary

The sedimentary basins in the Baffin Sea, Davies Strait and Labrador Sea are surrounded by old continents consisting of 2.4 to 3.6 bill year Proterozoic and Archean rocks. The old continents may have been connected or been very close. Coastal exposures and geophysical data demonstrate marine deposition during Archean and Protorezoic and from Cambrian and onwards in the basins and grabens between the continents.
