...MAXWELL R. DOBSON; DANIEL EVANS Abstract Geophysical surveys in the Malin Sea have revealed the presence of two asymmetric fault bounded basins, here termed the Loch Indaal basin and the Rathlin trough. They extend in a NE–SW direction between Northern Ireland and Western Scotland, and are thought...

Although biogenic suspended matter may originate in river waters, much is shown to be derived from micro-organisms in the lochs which abound in the basin. A direct relationship between the total surface area of the lochs and the sediment yield...

The Highland Boundary Fault, although a fairly straight and prominent feature to the NE, becomes displaced and difficult to follow in the area to the SW where it is accompanied by many splays trending roughly N–S. The area, in and around the Firth of Clyde, has been regarded as the product of a locked phase...
