Abstract

The Joggins Cliff (45°41′40″N; 64°27′02″W) exposes a unique section through Upper Carboniferous sequences (the “Coal Age Forests”), deposited in the Cumberland basin of northwestern Nova Scotia (Canada) around 315 Ma ago. It is designated a UNESCO world heritage site for the geological insights it contains, including details of the tropical Carboniferous amphibious environment and the first fossils of land-living reptiles (and therewith the first animals to give birth on land) in their environmental context. This is one of the marine basins of the Atlantic Canadian margin, which were filled from Devonian until the end of the Permian time. (...)
