Limestone Scenery GEOGRAPHY FOR 2020 & BEYOND

Carboniferous limestone. Limestone is made up of Calcium Carbonate. It is a (sedimentary/igneous) rock. It was laid down in layers on (dry land/the sea bed). The junctions between the layers are called (bedding planes/cracks). Weaknesses in the layers of limestone are called (joints/joins). Limestone is a(n) (permeable/impermeable) rock.

Karst hydrogeology, hydrogeochemistry and processes of

A number of karst springs rise in the Carboniferous strata of the Mells Valley, Somerset which is an area surrounded by many active and disused quarries. Some of these karst springs actively deposit tufa, a secondary precipitate of calcium carbonate, and they have been identified by the Environment Agency as potentially vulnerable to the effects of local sub-water table quarrying.

Depositional magnetization of Carboniferous Limestones

ABSTRACT Carboniferous Limestones in the Craven Basin of northern England carry a stable natural remanent magnetization (NRM) the intensity of which is facies dependent. Dark argillaceous limestones are most strongly magnetized and pure, pale coloured limestones most weakly magnetized. Partial thermal and alternating field demagnetization suggest that magnetite is the principal carrier of the

The Pennines form an anticline which extends in a north-south direction, consisting of Millstone Grit and the underlying Carboniferous Limestone.The limestone is exposed at the surface to the north of the range in the North Pennines AONB. In the Yorkshire Dales this limestone exposure has led to the formation of large cave systems and watercourses, known as "gills" and "pots".
