Caledonian Structures in Britain: South of the Midland Valley (Geological Conservation Review Series No. 3) 1992
Volume 3 of the Geological Conservation Review series, Caledonian Structures in Britain: South of the Midland Valley, describes the sites selected as part of the Geological Conservation Review within the southern British part of the Caledonides – a Caledonian terrane without strong and pervasive deformation and metamorphism, such as occurred further north. It is of particular interest because the former Caledonian mountain chain, which can be seen today in fragmented pieces in Scandinavia, Britain, Ireland and North America, was ultimately the result of the collision of two continental plates and the closure of a former ocean, Iapetus.
