Sedimentation and tectonics in the Scottish Dalradian
  • R. Anderton
  • Geology
  • Scottish Journal of Geology
  • 1 June 1985
Synopsis Sedimentological research on the Scottish Dalradian has progressed from the recognition of sedimentary structures in the 1930s, via the identification of sedimentary facies from the 1950sExpand

Precambrian
Abstract For much of Precambrian time, it is not possible to reconstruct any sort of meaningful palaeogeographies. For this Atlas, therefore, the earliest reconstructions are for ProterozoicExpand

Sandstone diapirism and clastic intrusion in the Tertiary submarine fans of the Bruce-Beryl Embayment, Quadrant 9, UKCS
Abstract Submarine fans of Late Palaeocene and Early Eocene age form important hydrocarbon reservoirs in the Bruce-Beryl Embayment, northern North Sea. The Early Eocene fans are the main reservoirsExpand

Dalradian deposition and the late Precambrian–Cambrian history of the N Atlantic region: a review of the early evolution of the Iapetus Ocean
  • R. Anderton
  • Geology
  • Journal of the Geological Society
  • 1 July 1982
During the late Precambrian the Dalradian environment evolved from a relatively stable subsiding shelf into a series of fault-bounded blocks and basins. This increase in tectonic instability can beExpand

Tidal-shelf sedimentation: an example from the Scottish Dalradian
The Jura Quartzite, a formation of probably late Precambrian metasediments over 5 km thick from the Caledonian belt in Southwest Scotland, has been divided into a coarse and three fine facies. TheExpand

Did the Dalradian slides originate as extensional faults?
Rocks of the Dalradian Supergroup1,2 of Scotland and Ireland were deposited in late Proterozoic–early Cambrian times on what became the southern margin of the Laurentian plate, and underwentExpand

Dalradian slides and basin development: a radical interpretation of stratigraphy and structure in the SW and Central Highlands of Scotland
  • R. Anderton
  • Geology
  • Journal of the Geological Society
  • 1 July 1988
Movements on syndepositional listric faults are responsible for many of the lateral variations in Dalradian stratigraphy. Sedimentary facies and thickness variations show that the surface traces ofExpand

Slopes, submarine fans, and syn-depositional faults: sedimentology of parts of the Middle and Upper Dalradian in the SW Highlands of Scotland
  • R. Anderton
  • Geology
  • Geological Society, London, Special Publications
  • 1979
Summary The depositional palaeogeography of the metasediments between the Jura Quartzite and Craignish Phyllites was dominated by a series of fault-bounded blocks and basins. The position of theExpand

Clastic facies models and facies analysis
  • R. Anderton
  • Geology
  • Geological Society, London, Special Publications
  • 1985
Summary The term facies is used either descriptively, for a certain volume of sediment, or interpretatively for the inferred depositional environment of that sediment. Facies models are intellectualExpand
