Msasa is underlain by Nyanzian greenstone rocks (mafic- and felsic- volcanic and volcaniclastic rocks, and BIFs), synorogenic granite and later kinematic granite.

Specific topics include Silurian-bearing terranes of Alaska, the significance of detrital zircons in Upper Devonian ocean-basin strata of the Sonora allochthon and Lower Permian synorogenic strata of Mina Mexico foredeep in central Sonora, and Late Triassic mixed carbonate-volcaniclastic facies of the Olds Ferry terrane in eastern Oregon and western Idaho.

Small- and middle-sized rapakivi granite massifs are often located within synorogenic faults within the basement.
In the Estonian basement, the synorogenic granitoids are recorded in about 50 drill cores, whereas hypersthene-bearing charnockites and enderbites predominate.
However, it is quite probable that most of them belong rather to the synorogenic rock group.
Elsewhere, evidence for widespread synorogenic mafic magmatism in the form of mafic dykes and gabbronorite-anorthosite intrusions has been interpreted as being due to extensional thinning of the lithospheric mantle following collisional thickening (Corrigan and Hanmer, 1997).
One of the key findings of the intraorogenic comparison approach is that evidence for synorogenic (or even late orogenic) extension, which normally assists exhumation, is lacking in Paleoproterozoic orogens.
The Westwater Canyon consists of fluvial (continental) sedimentary sequence deposited during a period of wet subtropical climate as the San Juan Basin subsided and filled with synorogenic deposits during the Laramide Orogeny.
