Abstract

Nine deep-water basin evolutionary stages: (1) 500 m of sandstones and mudstones; (2) incipient basin (late Precambrian?); (3) narrow turbiditic basin (Early(?) Cambrian); (4) basin expansion and initial starvation (Cambrian-Ordovician); (5) longitudinal turbidite basin (Ordovician-Silurian transition); (6) basin expansion and starvation (Llandoverian-Wenlockian); (7) wide turbidite basin; (8) middle Wenlockian Caledonian thrusting and conglomerate deposition; and (9) transpression or gravity sliding related to the advancing Caledonian front (Late Silurian).--Modified journal abstract.
