In the Pentland Hills, south-west of Edinburgh, diverse and abundant marine fossils of Silurian age are found. They are splendidly preserved as undistorted moulds, and occur in distinct palaeocommunities, succeeding each other through time and.

Dolichophonus loudonensis from the Eurypterid Bed (Deerhope Formation) at Gutterford Burn in the Pentland Hills, Scotland 15 was previously the earliest described scorpion. Specimens of by: 1. The Pentland Hills is famous for Silurian shales, siltstones and mudstones (which are to myrs old).

These are rich in fossils. There are four main formations covering the Wenlock and Llandovery stages as follows: Deerhope Formation (Deerhope Burn and Gutterford Burn).

Scottish Silurian fauna () showed a map of the fossiliferous localities in the vicinity of the North Esk Reservoir to illustrate his book on the geology of the Pentland Hills. On this map he marked the name Deerhope Burn on the NW branch of the North Esk River that runs into the North Esk Reservoir.

Niagara Falls and the km (7-mile) Niagara Gorge on the Canadian-U.S. border are products of erosion that continue to be sculpted by rushing waters undercutting the soft shale beneath a ledge of more-resistant Silurian dolomite. Silurian succession in the Pentland Hills The central Pentland Hills are underlain by steeply dipping or overturned Silurian strata of the North Esk Group (Tipper ), which crops out in the North Esk, Bavelaw Castle and Loganlee inliers (Fig.

These rocks, of late Llandovery to early Wenlock age, are. This inlier, occupying about 6 km 2 of country at the head of the Lyne Water and North Esk River, is the largest area of Silurian rocks in the Pentland Hills.

The succession begins in the river below the North Esk Reservoir with the alternating purple and grey mudstones and siltstones of the Reservoir Formation. The Silurian Hills are a small range of hills in the Mojave Desert, southeast of Death Valley National Park, in southern surrounding lower elevation lands provide important connectivity habitat between nearby mountain ranges.

The area provides critical habitat and movement corridors for bighorn sheep, desert tortoises, nesting golden eagles, kit foxes and Region: Mojave Desert.

The Pentland Hills in Scotland yield a large number of Silurian marine fossils, many of which are housed in the collections held at the British Geology Survey in Edinburgh, the national museums of Scotland, the Natural History Museum in London, the Lapworth Museum at Birmingham University, Trinity College in Dublin, and the Sedgwick Museum in Cambridge.

History. During the s the great English geologist Sir Roderick Impey Murchison was studying fossiliferous strata outcropping in the hills of South Wales. He named this geological stage the Silurian System, after the Silures, an ancient Celtic tribe that lived along what is now the Welsh-English Murchison and Sedgwick presented a joint paper, On the Silurian and.

Silurian crinoids reached maximum abundance on shallow shelf bottoms of skeletal-rich carbonate. In-place crinoid preservation in the Wenlock Limestone of Dudley, England, provides a community model for these occurrences, showing a pattern among crinoids of high taxonomic diversity, conspecific clustering, relatively robust morphology, and numerical dominance of Cited by: Kiaeropterus (Eurypterida; Stylonurina) recognized from the Silurian of the Pentland Hills O.

Pisocrinus campana Miller is also known from the Silurian (upper Llandovery to Ludlow) of the North American Mid-continent. Pentland Hills crinoids are generally rare and show low taxonomic diversity compared to many crinoid faunas of similar age, suggesting a. Silurian Period, in geologic time, the third period of the Paleozoic Era.

It began million years ago and ended million years ago, extending from the close of the Ordovician Period to the beginning of the Devonian Period. During the Silurian, continental elevations were generally much.

It was located in a coastal area up to the end of Silurian and many of the deposits were marine, thereafter swamp and .Introduction []. The Pentland Hills are made up of Lower Old Red Sandstone lavas and sediments with a core of Silurian rocks. The latter are generally steeply dipping and are exposed in three inliers known as the North Esk Inlier (p.

), the Bavelaw Castle Inlier and the Loganlee-Craigenterrie Inlier.The formation comprises interbedded sandstones, siltstones and shales with minor coals at the base and top. Sandstones are sharp-based and often fining upwards from coarse- to very fine-grained, sometimes cross-bedded, with occasional parallel lamination and bioturbation in the very fine grained sandstones.
