Abstract

Stratigraphic, petrologic, and isotopic data indicate that parts of the Coast Plutonic Complex and the North Cascade Range have been tilted northeast-side-up by angles of ~30° about north-northwest-trending axes. These tilts can account for discordant paleomagnetic directions observed in mid-Cretaceous plutons from these regions without large-scale displacement relative to North America. -Authors
