By Schuchert

Monogeosynclines

  • Exceptionally long and narrow tracts

  • Situated either within a continent or along the littoral areas

  • Pass through only one cycle of sedimentation and mountain-building.

  • Appalachian geosyncline

Polygeosynclines

  • Broader than monogeosynclines

  • Longer period of existence

  • More than one phase of orogenesis

  • The Rockies and Ural geosynclines

  • Exhibit complex parallel anticlines called geanticlines.

Mesogeosynclines

  • Surrounded by continents

  • Complex geological history
