A sequential back-arc and foreland basin thrust duplex model for the Southern Uplands of Scotland
Thrust imbrication of Ordovician and Silurian submarine fan sequences overlapping pelagic deposits in the Southern Uplands has been interpreted in terms of an accretionary prism formed above aExpand

Basin thermal history favours an accretionary origin for the Southern Uplands terrane, Scottish Caledonides
There is general agreement that the Siluro-Ordovician, Southern Uplands suspect terrane is an imbricate thrust belt formed adjacent to the Laurentian continental margin during closure of the IapetusExpand
