    Geology / U.K. The Silurian in Shropshire. Shropshire, a small county of England bordering Wales is one of the most geologically diverse areas for its size in the is a fairly continuous record of rocks ranging from to Million years ago. It was located in a coastal area up to the end of Silurian and many of the deposits were marine, thereafter swamp and desert rocks were.

The name Geology is derived from the Greek words "ge," the earth, and "logos," a discourse, thus indicating a science of the earth, a science investigating the different materials of which the earth is composed, and also the mannerin which these materials are arranged.

Geology gives us, also, the history of our planet. DEVONIAN SYSTEM By Roy C. Kepferle GENERAL STATEMENT Exposed Devonian rocks in Kentucky (fig. 5) range in thickness from 4 ft in south-central Kentucky (Cattermole, ), where they are cut out by a limestone-filled channel in the Mississippian Fort Payne Formation, to more than 1, ft along the west flank of Pine Mountain in eastern Kentucky (Alvord, ; Wolcott, ).

The Keyser Formation straddles the boundary between the Late Silurian and Early Devonian as the formation represents continuous carbonate sedimentation from both periods and has a thickness of about ft (38 m) (Inners, ).

The Devonian system of rocks is described by Harper (Harper, ) as a westward-thinning. Alternatively, surface runoff, and downward movement of surface runoff, may have been important in the recycling of water in Devonian formations of central Alberta, and spring waters.

Metasedimentary rocks of probable Silurian to Devonian age underlie about three-fourths of the Clinton quadrangle. Metamorphosed marine mudstone, siltstone, fine-grained graywacke, and limy siltstone form two thick sequences.

Silurian- Devonian Periods. Duration: about 30 millions years. Maximunm thickness: 70, feet. The Silurian Period (from the name of an ancient British tribe, the Silures) lies between approximately mya and mya. The name was given by Marchison for agroup of formations in Wales in an area inhabited by the Silurian.

During most of the Devonian, Kentucky was covered by shallow tropical seas, although some very low lands may have been emergent at times in central Kentucky.

GEOLOGIC STRUCTURE The Devonian rocks of southeastern Michigan and northwestern Ohio are located on the northwestern flank of the northeast branch of the Cincinnati geanticline.

They dip gently into the Michigan basin ex- cept along the Lucas County monocline. Geologic unit mapped in Washington: Mainly black argillite; some limestone, thin beds of conglomerate, sandstone, quartzite, and dolomite. Rocks confined to northwestern Pend Oreille County and adjacent Stevens County.

Silurian age based on Monograptus and corals of several unusual genera; Devonian age based on coral fauna. The Tarim Basin has been considered as the peripheral foreland basin of the Kunlun Early Paleozoic collision orogenic belt and was under regional tectonic compression during the SilurianDevonian periods (He et al.Jia et al., Wei et al., Zhou et al., Li et al.a, Li et al.b).

We first discovered the Late SilurianCarboniferous normal faults while. Silurian and Devonian data have been grouped because samples are all from reservoirs within the Hunton Limestone Megagroup.

Based on Sr isotope relations, STUEBER et al. () suggested that waters from Silurian and Devonian strata in the basin form a single hydrological system. A composite section of the Silurian, Devonian, and Mississippian formations in the Funeral Mountains between Death Valley and Amargosa Valley is about 4, feet thick.

The formations are in the top of a concordant, complexly faulted sequence that is ab feet thick from the highest part of the Precambrian to the Upper Mississippian. The Bungonia Limestone is intruded by parts of the Marulan Batholith ( ± 7m.

) thus giving a minimum age for the Silurian-Devonian boundary. An appraisal of published data shows that there are 20 radiometric dates with good biostratigraphic control from Silurian and Early Devonian rocks.

The Silurian rocks in all these areas were long called Niagara Limestone (Worthen, ; Bannister, ; Shaw, ). The Silurian System has a maximum thickness of nearly feet in and below some pinnacle reefs in the area east of East St.

Louis. However, the system is more commonly feet thick in that area and farther north (fig. S-1). Read about the Silurian System: Click below to refine your search.

Devonian Period - Devonian Period - Sediment types: A wide range of terrestrial and marine sediments of Devonian age are known internationally, and there is a corresponding variety of sedimentary rock types.

Devonian igneous activity was considerable, albeit localized. Laurussia is thought to have been near-tropical and sometimes arid. Playa facies, eolian dunes, and fan breccias are known.

Niagara Falls and the km (7-mile) Niagara Gorge on the Canadian-U. border are products of erosion that continue to be sculpted by rushing waters undercutting the soft shale beneath a ledge of more-resistant Silurian dolomite. The type section for the Clarita formation is also nearby the Old Hunton town site (Amsden, ).

Amsden produced a detailed stratigraphic section of the Hunton group outcroppings within this area (Amsden, ).

Over feet of the Devonian formations are exposed, while an extensive thickness of the Silurian Chimneyhill subgroup is also present.

Black Cap Limestone (Middle Devonian according to Rossman, but now known to contain Early Devonian fauna as well). These rocks are all part of the accreted Alexander terrane. In the Alexander terrane, thick Silurian carbonate shelf facies have been mapped from Prince of Wales Island in the south to Glacier Bay in the north.

P Silurian strata underlie the southern part of the Lake District and much of Wales, with small inliers north of Bristol and along the Malvern Lineament. In the Midlands the Silurian crops out at Walsall and near Dudley, where it forms the local landmarks of Cinder Hill, the Wren’s Nest and Mons.
