Hinged Alleghanian Uplift of the Bronson Hill terrane in Connecticut and Massachusetts Elizabeth R. Goeke, Julie L. Boyd, and Robert P. Wintsch Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana Research support by: Geological Society of America Student Research grants awarded to Elizabeth R. Goeke and Julie L. Boyd National Science Foundation grants #EAR 9104495 (R. P. Wintsch) and #EAR99-09410 (R. P. Wintsch) Department of Geological Sciences, Indiana University Goals: To evaluate the Alleghanian

overprint on rocks previously metamorphosed in the Acadian Orogeny. Why the Bronson Hill terrane? The entire terrane was metamorphosed during the Acadian Orogeny. The terrane extends from the Long Island Sound to the New Hampshire/Canadian border. Cooling ages from Connecticut in the Bronson Hill are indicative of cooling from Alleghanian events.
