    The Culpeper basin is part of a much larger system of ancient depressions or troughs, that lie inboard of the Atlantic Coastal Plain, and largely within the Applachian Piedmont Geologic Province of eastern North America, and the transition region with the neighboring Blue Ridge Geologic Province. This basin system formed during an abortive attempt to make a great ocean basin during the Late. The Culpeper Basin is one of about 16 ma­ jor basins in eastern North America in which nonmarine sedimentation and volcanism oc­ curred in the Late Triassic and Early Jurassic, recording the beginning of rifting between the North American and African continental plates.

Extensive field studies on the African and North American plates during this past decade have yielded a wealth of new data and ideas about rift basins and the origin of passive margins. New surface and subsurface basins have been identified; fossils abound in strata that only recently were considered barren; oil exploration is being actively pursued in continental strata of the Richmond.

Triassic-Jurassic sedimentary rocks form the purple-red sandstone sediments in the Culpeper Basin. The red color shows magma that formed diabase, the hard rock that is quarried today Source: Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy Generalized Geologic Map of Virginia. The local rift basin, known as the Culpeper basin, extends from south of Culpeper, Va., to Frederick, Md.

The sedimentary rocks of the Culpeper basin are mostly fine-grained siltstone that produces a deep red, clay-rich soil, familiar to anyone who drives past construction sites in western Fairfax and Loudoun counties.

Occurrence and distribution of Jurassic rocks. Jurassic rocks are widely distributed and include sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic rocks. Because of continuous subduction and destruction of ocean crust in trenches, Middle Jurassic oceanic crust and sediments are generally the oldest sediments remaining in the deep sea.

The Jurassic was a time marked by a high level of plate tectonic. Lindholm, R.C.,Geologic history and stratigraphy of the Triassic-Jurassic Culpeper basin, Virginia: Geological Society of America Bulletin, v.

The rocks in this area traditionally have been considered part of the Newark Group and referred to as Triassic, but Cornet's () palynological study indicates that they range from Upper Triassic to Lower Jurassic. The Culpeper Basin is one of the many basins in North America in which sedimentation extended from Late Triassic to Early.

Major conglomeratic units of the Culpeper Basin occur in four members of the Bull Run Formation (Leesburg, Goose Creek, Cedar Mountain, and Barboursville Members) and in the Waterfall Formation.

These rocks are for the most part muddy/sandy pebble conglomerates, and are interpreted as. The Newark Supergroup, also known as the Newark Group, is an assemblage of Upper Triassic and Lower Jurassic sedimentary rocks which outcrop intermittently along the United States East were deposited in a series of Triassic basins approximately million years ago as North America separated from Africa.

The exposures extend from Nova Scotia to North Carolina.in Virginia is the Culpeper Basin. The Culpeper Basin extends from just south of Orange County northward into Maryland, a distance of more than km (Lindholm, ).

The rocks of the basin have traditionally been associated with the Triassic Newark Group (Fig. 5). For many years the Culpeper and related basins were referred to as Triassic. Most rocks are grouped into three rock types: igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic; all three are found in Virginia.

Igneous rocks are formed when magma cools sufficiently to become solidified. The cooling may be rapid and result in the formation of natural glass (obsidian) or it may take place more slowly, thus permitting the crystallization.
