Silurian echiuroids: possible feeding traces in the thorold sandstone. Risk MJ. Problematic trace fossils collected from the Middle Silurian Thorold Sandstone bear a striking resemblance to feeding traces made by the proboscises of modern echiuroid wormns. Paleoecological approximations of depth and salinity may be possible depending on Cited by: Silurian Period - Silurian Period - Silurian geology: Silurian formations widely scattered around the world display a wealth of natural beauty. Niagara Falls and the km (7-mile) Niagara Gorge on the Canadian-U.S. border are products of erosion that continue to be sculpted by rushing waters undercutting the soft shale beneath a ledge of more-resistant Silurian dolomite. Silurian Geology. The long history of the Earth is divided into a number of named time periods or 'systems'. The Silurian System is a time period when life on Earth was still at an early stage. These pages give a broad introduction to the Earth in Silurian times.

NOVAKOWSKI and PATRICIA A. LAPCEVIC National Water Research Institute, Environment Cited by: Silurian rocks ( to million years ago) The Silurian rocks of the Mendips are formally known as the Coalbrookdale Formation, and occur as a narrow elongated outcrop in the core of the eroded anticlinal fold that forms Beacon Hill, north-east of Shepton Mallet. The Silurian is a geologic period and system that extends from the end of the Ordovician Period, about ± million years ago (mya), to the beginning of the Devonian Period, about ± mya (ICS, ). As with other geologic periods, the rock beds that define the period’s start and end are well identified, but the exact dates. Lower Silurian shales, especially the characteristic basal organic-rich (`hot') shale unit, are the origin of 80–90% of Palaeozoic-sourced hydrocarbons in North Africa, where they charge both intra-Palaeozoic and basal Triassic reservoirs (Boote et al., ).According to Boote et al. (), these shales are the most important petroleum source rock on the entire Saharan Platform, and have Cited by:
The lower Silurian Whirlpool Sandstone is composed of two main units: a fluvial unit and an estuarine to transitional marine unit. The lowermost unit is made up of sandy braided fluvial deposits, in shallow valleys, that flowed towards the northwest. Silurian Geology of the Interlake Area Manitoba.
