Accepting the uncertainty in the stratigraphic position and by asserting a maximum thickness of sediment between the andesite and the Rhynie Cherts and a conservative deposition rate, Parry et al . (2011) attempted to temporally link...

... by porcellaneous clay and one by shale. Thus, there is a strong association between chert beds and sandstones of lithofacies 2 and 3. The cherts at Rhynie display textures typical of modern subaerial sinters (Trewin 1994 , 1996 ) deposited in the immediate vicinity of hot-spring vents. In particular...
