Architecture of the Lower Carboniferous Limestone in the Irish

Lower Carboniferous (Visean) limestone is a principle target for geothermal energy production in the UK and northern Europe. In order to constrain its potential to provide low enthalpy heat to UK conurbations, particularly in central and northern England, it is necessary to understand the distribution of the limestone in the subsurface.

Carboniferous limestone with crinoids

Carboniferous limestone with crinoids. This Lower Carboniferous limestone contains many fragments of crinoid ossicles that were once the stems of ancient marine animals attached to the sea bed, sometimes called sea lilies. There are also many fragments of brachiopod shells. The sample comes from Bucket Rocks, Berwick upon Tweed, England, and is

Carboniferous Limestone is a collective term for the succession of limestones occurring widely throughout Great Britain and Ireland that were deposited during the Dinantian Epoch of the Carboniferous Period. These rocks formed between 363 and 325 million years ago. Carboniferous Limestone is a sedimentary rock made of calcium carbonate.

Implications of new palaeomagnetic results from the Carboniferous System of Britain

The Carboniferous Limestone of the Craven Basin (northern England) gives a mean pole position of 40N, 147E which confirms the palaeolatitude of Britian relative to other continents at this time. A polarity scale has been constructed for the lower Carboniferous using the Avonian zonal scheme as a basis. The geomagnetic field was mostly reversed in lower Carboniferous
