  Subannual stable isotope records reveal climate warming and seasonal anoxia associated with two extinction intervals across the Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary on Seymour Island, Antarctica. Islay, pronounced eye-la, is the most southerly of the major islands of the Inner Hebrides, it forms part of the Strathclyde region of Scotland. Access is by the Caledonian-Macbrayne ferry from Kennacraig on the Mull of Kintyre which makes three trips daily in the summer.

Examination of the geology of the Appin group of the Dalradian on Islay by Daniel Stedman Download PDF EPUB FB2

Abstract The Appin Group consists of a very varied group of largely shelf sediments, which can be recognized throughout the whole of the Dalradian outcrop, from Connemara in western Ireland to the Banff coast of north-east Scotland.

Possible correlatives of this group also occur in by: A Summary of the Geology of Islay The Earth formed around million years ago (Ma) and none of the rocks formed during the first half of Earth history have survived on Islay. However, crust that formed around Ma makes up much of the Rhinns, which was part of a very early supercontinent, known as Rodinia.

The Dalradian Supergroup consists of four groups which are from oldest to youngest; the Grampian, Appin, Argyll and Southern Highland groups. The Grampian Group consists of up to 7 km of predominantly marine, quartzo-feldspathic psammites and semi-pelites, displaying sharp lateral variations typical of a syn-rift origin.

The guide describes 12 varied excursions on Islay that tell the story of Islay’s geological past from 2 billion year old gneiss to the Ice Age. The geology of each excursion is described at an introductory level with geological maps and photographs and for novices the book also contains an "Introduction to Geology" section and a glossary of terms.

P The Rhinns Complex on Islay consists of two main components, respectively acid and basic gneisses (Wilkinson, ).

These constitute an alkali igneous complex which has suffered intense multiple deformation and has been intersliced with the overlying Colonsay Group rocks (Muir et al. NEW BOOK - A Guide to the Geology of Islay An introduction to Islay’s geological past with 12 illustrative excursions.

By David Webster, Roger Anderton and Alasdair Skelton This new guide describes 12 varied excursions on Islay that tell the fascinating story of Islay’s geological past from 2. The western tip of the Slieve League Peninsula con-tains excellent coastal exposures of Appin and Argyll Group Dalradian rocks which, apart from the original survey mapping of Hull, Kilroe.

Above the phyllite, Graham pointed out limestone beds from the upper part of the Appin group. The typical limestone weathering made this rock easy to identify. These Dalradian rocks form part of the upper limb of the Islay anticline.

Millions of years later, Trias breccia infilled a natural fissure in this structure. The north-east Grampian Highlands are defined here largely by two geological boundaries ().To the north-west, the boundary with the northern Grampian Highlands is taken at the Grampian–Appin group junction, which to the south of the Cairngorm Pluton is marked by the Boundary Slide or the Loch Tay Fault; farther north, a rapid stratigraphical transition is present, albeit with some.

Pre-Dalradian basement crops out in parts of the northern Grampian Highlands and on the Isle of Islay. The Dalradian sequence, its basement and the Caledonian intrusions comprise the Grampian Terrane, one of the several major crustal blocks that were juxtaposed during the Caledonian Orogeny to form the northern part of the British Isles.

Dalradian rocks also occur in the Shetland Islands. The Dalradian is divided into four Groups (Fig. 1, Fig. 2): Grampian (oldest), Appin, Argyll and Southern Highland (youngest).

The Grampian Group is dominated by fluvial and marine siliciclastic sediments and a few limestones (Glover et al., ). Sedimentological research on the Scottish Dalradian has progressed from the recognition of sedimentary structures in the s, via the identification of sedimentary facies from the s onwards, to the integration, in the s, of sedimentological data with that from studies of stratigraphy, tectonics and volcanism.

This has now led to an understanding of the pre-orogenic evolution of the. Dalradian age in Scotland and Ireland. This account focuses on the morphology and origin of such polygonal patterns in the Caol Ila section of the Lower Fine-grained Quartzite on Islay, and some of the other occurrences mentioned Table 1.

The detailed stratigraphy of the Dalradian Supergroup ranges from the uppermost Grampian Group through to the top of the Argyll Group, most notably seen in the two classic areas of Loch Leven.

The result is a comprehensive analysis of the geology of a structurally complex area of Dalradian and other rocks, for which there is no previously published account.

The succession contains lithologically diverse sedimentary rocks that have been metamorphosed to varying degrees. The basin’s formational history is dominated by extensional tectonics.
