Field and biostratigraphic evidence for an unconformity at the base of the Eycott Volcanic Group in the English Lake District

Field and biostratigraphic evidence for an unconformity at the base of the Eycott Volcanic Group in the English Lake District
Geological Magazine (January 1992) 129 (1): 77-92

Abstract

A Llanvirn age for the group has not been substantiated. Palynological assemblages from the basal formation only define an age in the Llanvirn-Caradoc range. The previously supposed passage sequence from the Skiddaw to the Eycott Volcanic group has been shown to be a sequence of sills emplaced into the basal sedimentary formation of the Eycott Volcanic group.
