Abstract

"A group of dome shaped features in lower Carboniferous (Mississippian) limestones in northwest Lancashire, England are described. Radial jointing is crudely developed and many of the features are characterised by a central crater. No such features have been previously described; they are interpreted as non-diastrophic structures developed by the expulsion of water from an underlying source. The descriptive term "spring-dome" is suggested for the structures."
