Why an atlas of the Carboniferous in northern England? There can infrequently be a extra researched process within the complete of the British Isles, given its frequent distribution at outcrop and annual appearances in several PhD theses (including these of the authors). yet probably all we actually learn about the Carboniferous is not any greater than skimming the skin. during this atlas, utilizing smooth multifold seismic and borehole info amassed by way of the oil in its look for petroleum accumulations, we will be able to begin to glance past the outside exposures and achieve a few new insights into the constitution and stratigraphy of the subsurface (and floor) Carboniferous. the original allure of this atlas of seismic sections is that it's in line with facts from onshore united kingdom. even supposing those strains have been initially shot as small segments focusing on person clients and tendencies, they've been spliced jointly to supply a chain of basin-scale nearby strains which might be of price to educational researchers and alike. With this atlas, we will be able to stroll the seismic strains at outcrop and in lots of circumstances examine publicity to either the seismic information and linked palaeofacies maps. additionally on hand: The Geology of britain And Wales - ISBN 1862391998 The Neuquen Basin, Argentina: A Case research in series Stratigraphy and Basin Dynamics - ISBN 1862391904 The Geological Society of LondonFounded in 1807, the Geological Society of London is the oldest geological society on the planet, and one of many greatest publishers within the Earth sciences.The Society publishes a variety of high quality peer-reviewed titles for teachers and pros operating within the geosciences, and enjoys an enviable foreign acceptance for the standard of its work.The many components within which we put up in include:-Petroleum geology-Tectonics, structural geology and geodynamics-Stratigraphy, sedimentology and paleontology-Volcanology, magmatic stories and geochemistry-Remote sensing-History of geology-Regional geology publications

World popular scientist Carl Sagan and acclaimed writer Ann Druyan have written a ROOTS for the human species, a lucid and riveting account of ways people obtained to be the best way we're. It exhibits with humor and drama that a lot of our key traits--self-awareness, expertise, family members ties, submission to authority, hatred for these a bit diversified from ourselves, cause, and ethics--are rooted within the deep earlier, and illuminated by way of our kinship with different animals. fantastic in its scope, amazing in its insights, and a fully compelling learn, SHADOWS OF FORGOTTEN ANCESTORS is a triumph of well known technology.

In the West Firsby area, where a thick LC2 (Westphalian A/B) sequence is preserved, an intra-LC2 tectonic event is evidenced by folding of the pre-LC2b sequence and onlap of the subsequent deposits (LC2b) in the hanging-wall of the Askern-Spital Fault (Fig. 16). This may represent either an early compressional pulse of the Variscan orogeny or a late extensional faulting phase evidenced in the Beckingham area (Fraser & Gawthorpe 1990, their fig. 8). Aitken et al. (1999) have recognized similar intra-LC2 tectonic event and major erosion at the level of the Wooley Edge Rock (mid-late Westphalian B).
Lee (1988) also identified a residual gravity high underlying the Holme area some 15 km to the north of this fault. The regional seismic profile (Fig. 17) confirms the Edale Gulf to comprise a half graben with the main bounding fault underlying the northern margin of the Derbyshire carbonate platform. The hanging-wall dipslope rises northwards to a basement high underlying the Holme area. Evans & Kirby (1999) show that the Holme High is fault bounded along its northern margin by the east-west-trending Holme Fault.
G. Alston and Askrigg blocks) (Fig. 1). Sequence EC I: early syn-rift I (late Devonian-earliest Dinantian) There are very few data to constrain the palaeogeography of northern England during the late Devonian. By this time, the mountainous topography of the Old Red Sandstone continent, particularly over northern Britain, was much subdued. Conglomerate deposition developed along newly active fault-scarps, such as the Gamblesby-Melmerby-Ousby fans along the Deep Slack, Fellside and Swindle Beck Faults and the Mell Fell Conglomerate, along the EdenPennine Fault in east Cumbria (Fig.
