    The largest of these, and definitely of Pennsylvanian age, is the Narragansett basin of Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Smaller nearby or connected basins are the North Scituate basin, the Woonsocket basin, and the Norfolk basin. Pennsylvanian rocks seem to be present at Worcester, Massachusetts, also, but their extent and relations are not known. Rhode Island Formation is thickest and most extensive formation in Narragansett basin. Does not extend to Norfolk basin. Consists of gray sandstone and siltstone and lesser amounts of gray to black shale, gray conglomerate, and coal beds 10 m thick. Interfingers with Wamsutta Formation in Narragansett basin. In places overlies Dedham Granite.

    Report on the bedrock geology of the Narragansett Basin, Massachusetts and Rhode Island Open-File Report By: Paul C. Lyons. The geology of Rhode Island is based on nearly one billion year old igneous crystalline basement rocks formed as part of the microcontinent Avalonia that collided with the supercontinent region experienced substantial folding associated with its landlocked position during the Alleghanian orogeny mountain building event. The region accumulated sedimentary rocks, including small.

    The Narragansett Bay Watershed lies 40% in Rhode Island and 60% in Massachusetts The Watershed is home to million people (as of ) The Narragansett Bay watershed includes 1,, acres of land (1, square miles) of which 35% is urban land (, acres) and 39% is forested land (, acres). The Narragansett people are an Algonquian American Indian tribe from Rhode tribe was nearly landless for most of the 20th century, but it worked to gain federal recognition and attained it in It is officially the Narragansett Indian Tribe of Rhode Island and is made up of descendants of tribal members who were identified in an treaty with the state.

Abstract. Includes bibliographical references. However, there has been a general lack of agreement on which coal beds in the Narragansett basin are anthracite and which are meta-anthracite. The problem has been compounded by Trumbull's map, 'Coal Fields of the United States', which refers to the Narragansett basin as the 'Rhode Island Meta-anthracite Region'.

Coal of the Narragansett basin generally has been considered to be anthracite and/or meta-anthracite. However, no single reliable method has been used to distinguish these two ranks in this basin.

Geologic unit mapped in Massachusetts: Sandstone, graywacke, shale and conglomerate; minor beds of meta-anthracite. Fossil plants. Rhode Island Formation is thickest and most extensive formation in Narragansett basin.

Does not extend to Norfolk basin. Consists of gray sandstone and siltstone and lesser amounts of gray to black shale, gray conglomerate, and coal beds 10 m thick.

Rhode Island Formation (Upper and Middle Pennsylvanian) at surface, covers 47 % of this area. Sandstone, graywacke, shale and conglomerate; minor beds of meta-anthracite.

Fossil plants. Rhode Island Formation is thickest and most extensive formation in Narragansett basin. Does not extend to Norfolk basin. However, the Narragansett basin in Rhode Island/Massachusetts contains similar age (Pennsylvanian period, million years ago) anthracite- to meta-anthracite rank coals.

These coal-bearing fluvial sediments were deposited after the Devonian Acadian orogeny whose imprint dominates the metamorphic terrane of New England. This group and the Quincy Granite of northern Rhode Island were exposed by erosion before Penn­ sylvanian time when the Narragansett basin rocks were deposited.

The Narragansett basin contains several thousand feet of coarse clastic non- marine rocks, which contain plant fossils and some meta-anthracite. The Narragansett basin of southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island has had a long disrupted history of coal exploration and mining beginning with the opening of the Portsmouth, RI mine in The last major effort to determine the coal potential of this basin was.

The geology of Massachusetts includes numerous units of volcanic, intrusive igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks formed within the last billion years. The oldest formations are gneiss rocks in the Berkshires, which were metamorphosed from older rocks during the Proterozoic Grenville orogeny as the proto-North American continent Laurentia collided against proto-South America.

This report describes the progress of the Narragansett Basin Project for the first eleven months. The abstract covers results of the coal exploration, related scientific studies, and other non-geologic studies. Appendix C concentrates on the contributions to the understanding of New England regional geology that have been made this past year.
