Namurian Delta systems of the Pennine area Download PDF EPUB FB2

Distribution. Rocks of Namurian age crop out along the western side of the Sheffield region and the adjacent Dark Peak area of the Peak District National Park. The Namurian sequence, which is at least m thick, consists of alternating sandstones, gritstones, mudstones and shales, forming the eastern limb of the broad Pennine anticline.

The turbidite-fronted delta of the lowest Namurian, of the Pendleian Stage of the Skipton area in the north of the Basin, shows three depth-related sedimentary associations which correspond with overlapping but distinct trace fossil assemblages.

This paper makes a general comparison of sediments of the Namurian delta in the central Pennines and sediments of Recent deltas.

The Upper Yeadonian basin fill of the Pennine basin consists of three deltaic sandstones interbedded with mudstones of a variety of. In Namurian times, a delta system prograded across the region, mainly from the north and west and supplied enormous quantities of feldspathic clastic material.

These delta deposits infilled the remaining topographic depressions and show much variation in facies and thickness. The Pennines are an important water catchment area with numerous reservoirs in the head streams of the river valleys. The region is widely considered to be one of the most scenic areas of the United Kingdom.

The North Pennines and Nidderdale are designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), as are Bowland and Pendle Hill. DELTA () Monday - Friday: 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. EST.

Comparisons of facies observed in outcrop (Co.

Clare produced detailed measurements of Author: Eleanor Jane Stirling. The dominant system during the Namurian was the Pennine delta, which flowed from the north. The ultimate provenance of the detritus is considered to comprise Caledonian granites, mid–late Proterozoic metasediments (derived from a range of mid-Proterozoic basement rocks formed during the Svecofennian, Gothian and Sveconorwegian orogenies and intervening phases of anorogenic magmatism) and Archaean basement by: Dinantian and Namurian depositional systems in the southern North Sea (English) UK Pennine Basin: regional analyses and their relevance to southern North Sea interpretations The Orustdalen Formation of Brøggerhalvøya, Svalbard: A fan delta complex of Dinantian/Namurian age.

Free access. Fairchild, Ian J. During the Namurian, the majority of sediment was supplied from the north via the 'Pennine delta'. The source region comprised a high-grade metasedimentary terrain with granitic intrusions.

Zircon age data indicate that this lay within the part of Laurentia-Baltica affected by the Caledonian by: The approach of a Namurian turbidite-fronted delta towards the Derbyshire limestone massif in Dinantian times.

This turbidite-fronted delta sequence constituted a major basin-filling sequence of the Namurian (Figure 4).
