Sedimentary rocks are formed by the consolidation of sediments which settle out of water, ice or air and are accumulated on the Earth’s surface, on dry land or under water. When composed of individual mineral or rock particles (clasts) derived from weathering and the erosion of older rocks they are known as clastic or detrital.

    Evidence for the Late Ordovician-Early Silurian glacial period in Africa include: sandstone wedges, eolian (dry) sand in frost cracks, striated and grooved pavements, roches moutonnees, glacial valleys, crescentric friction cracks, step fractures, ice-push structures, drumlins, fluted tillite surfaces, and esker-like structures (Hambrey, In the s several Scottish performers, including the Average White Band and Rod Stewart (who was born in London to a Scottish family), had to relocate to the United States to experience wide-reaching success. At the turn of the s, however, a small but significant music scene developed in both Scotland’s official capital, Edinburgh, and its commercial and industrial capital, Glasgow.

Internationally, Scotland is regarded as the birthplace of modern geoscience, led by geologist James Hutton in the late 18th century. At Siccar Point in Berwickshire, Hutton and John Playfair (Scottish Geologist and mathematician) unlocked ‘the abyss of time’ and presented a vision of a living world that recognised the crucial links between geology, soils, plants, animals and human beings.

Sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic rocks are seen at various scales: in their natural context, in outcrop, in hand specimen and under the microscope.

They occur in North, Central, and South America, in the Caribbean region, in Europe, especially in the Alps, in the Middle East, in Asia, and in the circum-Pacific region (figure). Typically, these facies series form on the outer (trench) side of a paired metamorphic belt associated with a subduction zone.

The geology of Scotland is unusually varied for a country of its size, with a large number of differing geological features. There are three main geographical sub-divisions: the Highlands and Islands is a diverse area which lies to the north and west of the Highland Boundary Fault; the Central Lowlands is a rift valley mainly comprising Palaeozoic formations; and the Southern Uplands, which.

Even the great development of striated, and grooved surfaces of rock, another mark of the former. Gneiss, Scotland Gneiss is a metamorphic rock formed by immense heat and pressure deep within the Earth’s crust.

In this photograph you can see how the rock layers have been intensely deformed at temperatures high enough to make the rock quite soft and “plastic”. This dramatic, foot deep gorge in the west of Scotland looks like a gateway to another dimension, largely thanks to the rocks that jut up through the surface of the water and create stunning.
