... systems of NW-trending faults, the most important of which is the Groby Reverse Fault. This complex structure is described here for the first time; it features a narrow tectonic slice of Brand Group rocks, which was thrown down into the South Charnwood Diorite. The courses of younger, ‘Phase 2’ faults...

... uplift has occurred ( England and Molnar, 1990 ). Available evidence suggests that the crustal thickness of Marie Byrd Land is ∼25 km, similar to that offshore eastern New Zealand, yet the region remains near or above sea level ( Gohl et al., 2007 ; Grobys et al., 2008 ; Ritzwoller et al., 2001...

... coarse-grained ‘granitic’ rocks were also quarried for local building and monumental stone in the Midlands (e.g. pink Mountsorrel and green Groby granodiorites, Leicestershire), North Wales (grey Trefor granite), NW England (Cumbria; pink porphyritic Shap granite) and more extensively in Scotland...

... ( Sutherland 1999 ; Grobys et al. 2007 ). It is interpreted that the Tupuangi Formation represents an onshore expression of this failed-rift basin. All sediment samples in this study were taken from Waihere Bay, Pitt Island, Chatham Islands ( Figure 2 ). The 66 discovered specimens of Introvertocystis...

Studies of pre-Carboniferous rocks in eastern England (e.g. Pharaoh et al. 1987 ) suggest a number of basement terranes that could have supplied volcanic...

This has important implications for hydrocarbon exploration in Northwest Europe. In the East Midlands of England, a number of onshore oilfields have been discovered and exploited since...
