Figure 17. The Paleogene was dominated by major regression into the Canada Basin across the East Siberian shelf, the North Slope, and Mackenzie Delta. Rifting in the Eurasia Basin trapped sediments sourced from the Verkhoyansk fold belt. The Barents Sea and West Siberia Basin underwent transgression and flooding whereas sediments from the Eurekan orogen were routed southward to form a rift–tip delta in the Baffin Bay. AMR = Alpha–Mendeleev ridge; DGT = De Geer transform; EB = Eurasia Basin; FJL = Franz Josef Land; LR = Lomonosov Ridge; NSI = New Siberian Islands; WI = Wrangel Island.
