Distribution. Rocks of Namurian age crop out along the western side of the Sheffield region and the adjacent Dark Peak area of the Peak District National Park. The Namurian sequence, which is at least m thick, consists of alternating sandstones, gritstones, mudstones and shales, forming the eastern limb of the broad Pennine anticline.

The turbidite-fronted delta of the lowest Namurian, of the Pendleian Stage of the Skipton area in the north of the Basin, shows three depth-related sedimentary associations which correspond with overlapping but distinct trace fossil assemblages.

This paper makes a general comparison of sediments of the Namurian delta in the central Pennines and sediments of Recent deltas. Some of the detailed Cited by: 2.

In Namurian times, a delta system prograded across the region, mainly from the north and west and supplied enormous quantities of feldspathic clastic material.

These delta deposits infilled the remaining topographic depressions and show much variation in facies and thickness. The Pennines are an important water catchment area with numerous reservoirs in the head streams of the river valleys.

The region is widely considered to be one of the most scenic areas of the United Kingdom. The North Pennines and Nidderdale are designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), as are Bowland and Pendle Hill.

The ultimate provenance of the detritus is considered to comprise Caledonian granites, mid–late Proterozoic metasediments (derived from a range of mid-Proterozoic basement rocks formed during the Svecofennian, Gothian and Sveconorwegian orogenies and intervening phases of anorogenic magmatism) and Archaean basement by: Dinantian and Namurian depositional systems in the southern North Sea (English) UK Pennine Basin: regional analyses and their relevance to southern North Sea interpretations The Orustdalen Formation of Brøggerhalvøya, Svalbard: A fan delta complex of Dinantian/Namurian age.

This turbidite-fronted delta sequence constituted a major basin-filling sequence of the Namurian (Figure 4). These coarsening-upwards sequences of the prograding delta slope sequences are capped by a delta-plain system.

The southern sediment was carried into the basin throughout the late Visean and Namurian by small river systems, several of which can be recognized within the study area.

The northern sediment entered via two lobes; it first entered the region in mid-Namurian (late Kinderscoutian) times and continued through the later Namurian into the by: 2.

From the mid Visean, and through much of the Namurian, a major delta system built out southwards, allowing sand and mud to encroach into the Pennine Basin. The resulting alternating sequence of marine (limestone/mudstone) and deltaic (sandstone/siltsone) deposits, the Yoredale Group, shows a strongly cyclic pattern of sedimentation, with a.

ABSTRACT The Namurian (Upper Carboniferous) Scar House Beds of Yorkshire, northern England, are an example of a fluvial‐dominated deltaic sequence that cannot be adequately described using existing classification schemes for deltas.

For substantial periods of the Scar House delta history, inertial processes and hyperpycnal mixing prevailed in the river mouth area due to repeated, frequent. Late Dinantian limestones and Early Silesian shales, in particular thick pro-delta Namurian shales deposited in the Carboniferous subbasins, form the source rocks for - the East Midlands fields.

By late Namurian to Westphalian times the East Midlands was part of the widespread Pennine Basin. The Pennine basin began generating. The fundamental principles upon which sequence stratigraphy is based are applicable at a broad range of temporal and physical scales.

This volume arises from several sessions on sequence stratigraphy held at the Thirteenth International Sedimentological Congress, with emphasis on facies associations within a sequence stratigraphic g: Pennine.
