A Note on the Field Relations of the Shiant Isles' Picrite
A brief report on the Garbh Eilean-Eilean an Tighe sill in the Shiant isles off the west coast of Scotland, noting that the junction of picrite with overlying picrodolerite is very abrupt rather thanExpand
At one locality near or at the lower margin of the main Shiant Isles sill there are contacts with Jurassic marl. Immediately adjacent to the highest of these contacts there is clear evidence of anExpand
A Note on the Occurrence of Rhythmic Layering in the Eilean Mhuire Sill, Shiant Isles
Investigation of Eilean Mhuire, the most easterly island of the Shiant isles, off the west coast of Scotland, shows the presence of but one sill, which is thought to be the downfaulted top of theExpand
Supercooling on the lunar surface: a review of analogue information
The crystallization of the principal constituent minerals, olivine, pyroxene and plagioclase, in dendritic or skeletal forms, is much more characteristic of lunar than of terrestrial igneous rocks.Expand
Metastable Growth Patterns in Some Terrestrial and Lunar Rocks
With reference to new information on the textures in some terrestrial mafic and ultramafic igneous rocks of Tertiary age, textural patterns attributable to metastable crystallization are described,Expand
Crystallization of Poikilo-macro-spherulitic Feldspar in a Rhum Peridotite
Here we define and describe a new macrocrystalline radiate texture in a major layered intrusion. This occurrence is inconsistent with the much applied adcumulus crystal growth hypothesis whichExpand
XXII.—The Petrology of Picritic Rocks in Minor Intrusions—a Hebridean Group.
The results are presented of a detailed petrological reconnaissance of a group of picritic minor intrusions in the Hebrides. A substantial amount of new factual data is subjected to a unifiedExpand
