Abstract

The Girvan–Ballantrae district is a classic Ordovician area that has played a key role in our understanding of the processes taking place along, or close to a destructive plate margin. The Ordovician rocks divide conveniently into two major associations: an older, northward-obducted ophiolite with associated volcanogenic and clastic sediments, and a younger, thick, transgressive cover sequence currently believed to represent a proximal fore-arc regime. Modern fore-arc sequences are commonly associated with fragments of obducted ocean crust, to which the Ballantrae Complex may be compared
