...P. STONE; G. S. KIMBELL; P. J. HENNEY Abstract In the SW part of the Southern Uplands terrane the Moniaive Shear Zone has been superimposed above a geophysically defined basement discontinuity. Deformation was a protracted event, commencing in the early Wenlock and ending with granite intrusion...

... have been unsuccessful. A range of rock types is represented, mainly with I-type affinities, and granodiorite is the most voluminous. In contrast, granitic intrusions south of the Moniaive shear zone in Scotland and also in the north of England have significant S-type characteristics, span the trace...

This subduction zone eventually became the plane of collision – the Iapetus Suture – between Laurentia and the southern...

This timing is compatible with a latest Silurian end to Iapetan convergence in the Southern Uplands to the southeast (Fig. 7 ). Vaughan inferred that a deep shear zone underlies the 10 km wide...
