My map of the Cretaceous in the North East
NB, New Brunswick; NS. Nova Scotia; ME, Maine, NF, Newfoundland 1. The Gulf of Maine then dry land; 2. The Gulf of St. Lawrence, ditto; 3. The Manicougan Crater, which one scientist thinks was involved in the first opening of the Bay of Fundy. At this time drainage out of New England and Maritime Canada was northeastward to the ocean by way of the ancient St. Lawrence River. Areas then land but now covered by water are dark green. Red dots indicate regions where there have been some major dinosaur fossil finds.
