     In the Mid-Atlantic region the Acadian orogeny took place in two impacts, one in eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York (the Catskill), and the second in southern Virginia (the Pocono). Each of these created a foreland basin that filled with a clastic wedge (both maps below).
     Of the two clastic wedges the Catskill was the largest, and has the most significant stratigraphic record. It was thickest in New York and Pennsylvania and thinned westward and southward.
