Why an atlas of the Carboniferous in northern England? There can rarely be a extra researched procedure within the complete of the British Isles, given its frequent distribution at outcrop and annual appearances in several PhD theses (including these of the authors). yet maybe all we actually find out about the Carboniferous is not any greater than skimming the outside. during this atlas, utilizing sleek multifold seismic and borehole information accrued via the oil in its look for petroleum accumulations, we will begin to glance past the outside exposures and achieve a few new insights into the constitution and stratigraphy of the subsurface (and floor) Carboniferous. the original charm of this atlas of seismic sections is that it truly is in response to information from onshore united kingdom. even if those traces have been initially shot as small segments focusing on person customers and developments, they've been spliced jointly to supply a chain of basin-scale local strains which may be of worth to educational researchers and alike. With this atlas, we will be able to stroll the seismic traces at outcrop and in lots of circumstances evaluate publicity to either the seismic information and linked palaeofacies maps. additionally on hand: The Geology of britain And Wales - ISBN 1862391998 The Neuquen Basin, Argentina: A Case learn in series Stratigraphy and Basin Dynamics - ISBN 1862391904 The Geological Society of LondonFounded in 1807, the Geological Society of London is the oldest geological society on the earth, and one of many greatest publishers within the Earth sciences.The Society publishes a variety of top quality peer-reviewed titles for teachers and execs operating within the geosciences, and enjoys an enviable foreign popularity for the standard of its work.The many components during which we post in include:-Petroleum geology-Tectonics, structural geology and geodynamics-Stratigraphy, sedimentology and paleontology-Volcanology, magmatic stories and geochemistry-Remote sensing-History of geology-Regional geology publications

The Theory of the Chemostat: Dynamics of Microbial Competition

The chemostat is a uncomplicated piece of laboratory equipment, but it has started to occupy an more and more primary position in ecological reviews. The ecological setting created through a chemostat is likely one of the few thoroughly managed experimental structures for checking out microbial progress and festival. As a device in biotechnology, the chemostat performs an enormous position in bioprocessing.

25), for example the Shap Red Beds (Kimber & Johnson 1986). These include conglomerates derived from the Silurian greywackes to the south and SW, grading up into cross-bedded sandstones. Similar conglomerates at Sedbergh to the south were probably derived from 28 Chapter 4 Fig. 24.

Towards the base of the sequence the indeterminate faunas include fragmented conodonts, foraminiferal casts, isolated brachiopod spines and goniatite spat. Palynofloral assemblages from the sequence can be assigned to the VF zone of Neves et al. (1972). Assemblages typically contain species of Lycospora and Densosporites which are common, in association with Schulzospora species, Spelaeotriletes arenaceous, Raistrickia nigra and Remysporites magnificus (Ebdon et al. 1990). Seismic character. EC6 is thickest along the Cinderhill Fault with a carbonate shelf margin developed basinward of the EC5 volcanic centres (Figs 12 and 14).

The base of the sequence exhibits downlap onto EC5 along the hanging-wall dipslope, becoming sub-parallel to EC5 in the basin centre. The top of the sequence is marked by progressive onlap of the overlying sequence LC1 (Fig. 12). Along the hanging-wall dipslope, EC6 comprises a series of complex sigmoidal and oblique, high-amplitude, low-frequency clinoforms (Fig. 12). These change character along the hanging-wall dipslope to hummocky clinoforms on parallel seismic lines, and pass southwards into high-amplitude, high-frequency parallel events in the basin (Fig.
