...C. J. Vincent; W. J. Rowley; A. A. Monaghan Abstract Synopsis Basin subsidence and thermal history models of the eastern part of the Midland Valley of Scotland have been constructed to characterize the development of the Midlothian-Leven synclinal basin from the mid Mississippian to the present day...

...-Leven synclines. Aberrant mudstone and coal-rich Passage Formation strata occur in a spectacular growth syncline at Westfield, north Fife ( Underhill et al. 2008 ). In Ayrshire, Namurian rocks are also associated with ENE-trending faults controlling marked changes in thicknesses of the deposits across...

..., from NCB core boreholes, to be favourable. The smaller field at Douglas is also of potential interest, but gas contents are presently unknown. The Midlothian Syncline is of little interest here, most relevant coals being mined out. The Leven Syncline, with its extensive unmined coals, is of interest...

A series of interrelated depocentres and intra-basinal highs, including the deep low of the MidlothianLeven Syncline spanning the Firth of Forth and the shallower Clackmannan Syncline ( Fig. 12 ), are major features mapped using sparse seismic data, historical...

... Valley of Scotland. The East Fife Coalfield occupies the Leven Syncline (Dinantian to Westphalian C coals; Fig. 3 ). It is structurally simpler than the Midlothian Syncline in that there are fewer faults within the area that has been mined (much of the western limb). Cleat azimuths in the mine...

During the Pennsylvanian, compression and transpression created the Mid Forth Anticline, the Leven Syncline and associated depositional growth structures. The isopach maps produced from the seismic data also show that the locus of deposition shifted...
