Eclogites and eclogites in the Western Gneiss Region, Norwegian Caledonides
The Western Gneiss Region WGR marks the outcrop of a composite terrane consisting of variably re-worked Proterozoic basement and parautochthonous or autochthonous cover units. The WGR exhibits aExpand
The timing of stabilisation and the exhumation rate for ultra-high pressure rocks in the Western Gneiss Region of Norway
New petrographic evidence and a review of the latest radiometric age data are taken to indicate that formation of the ultra-high pressure (UHP) eclogites within the Western Gneiss Region of NorwayExpand
The evolution of the Hornelen Basin detachment system, western Norway: Implications for the style of late orogenic extension in the southern Scandinavian Caledonides
Abstract The geology of the Devonian Hornelen Basin and the surrounding Western Gneiss Region (WGR), western Norway has been examined in detail. Structural, clast provenance and geothermobarometricExpand
Bioavailability of arsenic and antimony in soils from an abandoned mining area, Glendinning (SW Scotland)
Bioavailability of As in the biota, was shown to be limited by pH, and in spite of the considerably high As and Sb contents of the soil the plant contamination remained comparably low, but still exceeded background values. Expand
A tectonic model for the metamorphic evolution of the Basal Gneiss Complex, Western South Norway
A review of currently available information relevant to the Basal Gneiss Complex (BGC) of Western South Norway, combined with the authors’own observations, leads to the following conclusions. 1.Expand
The mantle and crustal evolution of two garnet peridotite suites from the Western Gneiss Region, Norwegian Caledonides: An isotopic investigation
A compilation of published and unpublished geochronological and isotopic data from garnet-bearing orogenic peridotites in the HP/UHP Western Gneiss Region (WGR) of the Norwegian Caledonides indicateExpand
The concentration, distribution and health risk from potentially toxic elements in the soil - plant - water system developed on black shales in SE Nigeria
Abstract Potentially toxic elements (PTEs) are present in some natural geological materials and the black shales of southeastern Nigeria provides an example of this. The concentration andExpand
Chemical availability of arsenic and antimony in industrial soils
Total concentrations and extractable fractionations of As and Sb were determined in soil samples from former mining sites in Scotland and Italy. Pseudo-total levels of As and Sb in the sample wereExpand
The Potential of Sequential Extraction in the Characterisation and Management of Wastes from Steel Processing: A Prospective Review
This review explains how Sequential extraction (SE) analysis can be applied to steel wastes, and finds that the commonly applied BCR (The community Bureau of reference) extraction method is problematic due to difficulties with zinc speciation, hence a substantially modified SEP is necessary to deal with particular characteristics of steel wastes.

Abstract The Middle Devonian Hornelen Basin of western Norway is a continental fault-basin which formed during the late stages of the Caledonian orogeny, closely following the Late Silurian crustalExpand
