Why an atlas of the Carboniferous in northern England? There can not often be a extra researched approach within the entire of the British Isles, given its frequent distribution at outcrop and annual appearances in different PhD theses (including these of the authors). yet probably all we actually learn about the Carboniferous isn't any greater than skimming the outside. during this atlas, utilizing sleek multifold seismic and borehole info accumulated via the oil in its look for petroleum accumulations, we will be able to begin to glance past the skin exposures and achieve a few new insights into the constitution and stratigraphy of the subsurface (and floor) Carboniferous. the original attraction of this atlas of seismic sections is that it truly is in keeping with information from onshore united kingdom. even if those traces have been initially shot as small segments concentrating on person clients and developments, they've been spliced jointly to provide a sequence of basin-scale nearby traces which could be of worth to educational researchers and alike. With this atlas, we will be able to stroll the seismic traces at outcrop and in lots of situations evaluate publicity to either the seismic info and linked palaeofacies maps. additionally to be had: The Geology of britain And Wales - ISBN 1862391998 The Neuquen Basin, Argentina: A Case examine 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 execs operating within the geosciences, and enjoys an enviable overseas attractiveness for the standard of its work.The many parts within which we put up in include:-Petroleum geology-Tectonics, structural geology and geodynamics-Stratigraphy, sedimentology and paleontology-Volcanology, magmatic reviews and geochemistry-Remote sensing-History of geology-Regional geology courses

Late Asbian-early Brigantian. The oldest age of EC5 is well constrained by the youngest age of the underlying EC4 sequence. The record of palynofloras belonging to the NM Zone (Neves et al. 1972), ME Subzone (Clayton et al. 1977) is consistent with the late Asbian age assigned to the base of the sequence. The upper age limit is less well constrained, being approximately equivalent to the YF-NC miospore zone boundary of Neves et al. (1972). Clayton et al. (1977) equates the base of the NC Zone to a position within the P2 goniatite Zone.

The grainstone margin-volcanic rock association on the northern margin of the Widmerpool Gulf adds further credibility to the interpretation made from the seismic data. Mounded features mapped on the Hathern Shelf are interpreted to be analogous to the carbonate buildups of the Coalhills complex in Derbyshire (Walkden 1982). g. Collinson 1988). Fades. In the basin EC6 comprises a monotonous series of thinly bedded, dark grey, calcareous mudstones and brown, dolomitic, muddy limestones. Volcanic centres along the Cinderhill Fault continued to be active during EC6 times as evidenced by the basalts and tuffs penetrated in the Strelley-1 borehole (Figs 12 and 14).

G. Hallsworth & Chisholm 2000; Hallsworth et al. 2000), whole-rock Sm-Nd isotopic data (Glover et al. 1996; Leng et al. 1999) and U-Pb dating of detrital zircon and monazite (Drewery et al. 1987; Cliff et al. 1991; Evans et al. 2001) have helped to determine the characteristics of the northern source and have highlighted the importance of other sediment sources to the Namurian and Westphalian of northern England. Overall sediment derived from areas of Larentia-Baltica affected by Caledonian orogeny dominates Namurian depositional systems.
